Nobody make anything for my DR200. [nevermind, I found one.]

Is there a lot of loose rocks and gravel?

Just wondering if the stock Trail Wing is good enough.

Removed my slightly used Trail Wing after a rocky ride in SE Oklahama. Went with Dunlop 606. Shinko and Kenda make relatively inexpensive but more aggressive tires. TKC80 is better also.

There are millions of youtube videos that will give you a good preview of the trails in the area... I suggest checking some of them out to see what you might encounter. I've been sending links to videos to a newb I'm bringing out with me this year so he will know what to expect. Also depends on which trails / roads you ride. Search you tube for words like: Alpine Loop, Engineer Pass, Black bear Pass, Hurricane Pass, Imogene Pass, Yankee Boy Basin, Clear Lake Trail, Owl Creek Pass, etc.

My trail riding buddies who have been to Colorado tells me it's easy compared to our trails. But the videos show some scary roads. I mean you guys are riding just a few feet away from unsurvivable dropoffs.
