Awesome. I was at Indy when Peter tragically lost his life.

So what you are saying is that line choice essential...
yes exactly! There’s places to make mistakes and then there’s places with grave results!
Theres also yucca plants that like to grow on the left side that want to prick you and toss you of the edge😜

Not much beauty in the desert where I road yesterday.
Hopefully this Summer I will have more scenic pics to share of some of the areas around where I live

Took the bike out for some laps with my son. I was never a fan of anything but Dunlop...these WERE Bridgestone's. They came on the bike from the factory.. needless to say I am getting some new shoes today. Dunlop MX 33's.

What tires do you guys like/run?

What year are those tires? Unless you had a flat ive never seen a dirt tire, much less a Bridgestone do that.

It came on the bike in 2020. It was a 2019 race leftover (Rock River). I was running 12psi and the track owner just put down a lot of new clay and it became instant concrete. He put it right out of the sand corner. So the tire is really spinning. 50 hard laps later...

I didn't even notice it until I got home and pulled it out the truck. Here is a video of my last few laps....with the flat.

It really speaks to the Bridgestone carcass

Thats crazy how they started to come apart! I was hoping old tires out in the sun!
