BTW, a bit of a tip. Less tire pressure works best in the looser stuff, but you need a way to inflate back when you get on pavement.
Well, I was the only new guy to motorcycles. I usually run deflated in the rough stuff, but we transitioned from rough to 80 mph highway sections so many times in a day it would have wasted a lot of time airing up and down. But I agree, low tire pressure is great in loose stuff!
