The riding around Laughlin/Bullhead IS really nice this time of year.......
The MT43 is pretty much the only rear tire I use anymore.....solid "all rounder" and a "cheater" on slippery/rocky uphills: http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/392/19...re-Review.aspx
That's what I was thinking......14/48 or 50.......the stock/aluminum 52 shows a surprising level of wear after only ~250 miles.......I might be replacing it with a steel sprocket sooner than I thought......
