I typically run 32-36psi.

I'm generally pretty gentle on the throttle, but an occasional run into the triple digits or a spirited canyon run really eats up tires. I did a 600 mile camping trip this spring with a pretty heavy load.

FYI, I'm going with another Scorpion on the rear, but a Heidenau Scout on the front. I'm hoping the change in front tire will give better manners in deep gravel & sand.

I do tend to use the back brake a lot. For my first 6 months on the bike I would regularly trigger the ABS. I put in an ABS disable for any time I leave pavement.

The same road, but a long time ago. The picture is from 2008, so it's about time to go there again.

Orange front guard on blue bike

Exactly like that, thanks Johan! I've now got an orange guard... I've sent the suspension away for a service, will post a pic when it's all back together
