Thanks for checking MATTRIDER. Have this bookmarked for after I see how the Lynxx does.

Some pics of my Ginger after a 50' slide through some algae covered road.

My Ginger came to rest facing back where I came from.
Ummm- I did too. About 10 from the bike.



My Hammerhead shifter is now pointed.



Except for the shifter and some scuffing on the hand guards & stands she came thru with no issues.



See that V then all the black. That is where the wheels went in different directions until we all came down to wipe away some of the Algae. By boy also went down. His single track is to the left.

Heh, you'd have been better off just riding through the creek.

Do you notice the top of the traffic pylon just sticking out of the water? Don't think these bikes do well as submarines. Lol

Sent from outside my mind.

I know I asked someone else recently in this thread, but I'm looking for feedback on sumo tires.

What brand/ model tires are you running, in what size, and how do you like them, and why?

Thanks in advance for any insights.

I run Avon Distanzia Super Moto Tires when the Motard rims are on. Got them from Rock Mountain ATV on special. Size 120/70 R17, 150/60 R17
I know diddly squat about road tires but to me these things are grippy as, while still being OK on the dirt. I think you would chew them up on a track day but for an every now & then Motard novice like Me they do exactly what I want them to do.


While Motards are fun, nothing beats the Knobbies.

I had the Distanzias on my 2003 LC4 Supermoto. The motard compound ones. Loved them. They were hard to install iirc.

Pirelli stopped importing the Scorpion Sync to Japan, which I ran before the Avons. Those were great too.

I have Bridgsestone S20 on my sumosetup, works great for hard street driving and weekend warrior (Trackdays)
Im happy with them and been running thru two sets now.
They get grippy real fast even in cold conditions ( Do read about the tyre 'google' )

Next tyre ill be trying is ContiAttack SM, they are made for bikes like this... what can go wrong

All too familiar lol! I tried to avoid a snake swimming upstream in a similar but longer and deeper crossing when I found out how slick it was. Fortunately, my wife on her Sherpa made it just fine.

Other than bending the notorious stock brake pedal into the clutch cover, there was no harm done. This is when gear counts!

I've used the Distanza's, Attacks, and Scorpions, all 3 are "made" for bikes like these. At the end of the day, they don't work any better (actually the Distanza's and Scorpions don't work as good) then Pilot Powers and they cost more. So I stick with the Powers.
