    I 've run the MOTOZ Tractionator on my SE for about 4 years now. I had 1 front tire that would not balance. anything over 80kph and the front started bouncing...at 120.....150...!!!As I found these to be the tire of choice for me on my SE ( mileage and traction wise) i was really let down as every other set of MOTOZ tire I installed, I never balanced and was smooth right up to 200kph.This 1 front sucked. So the next set ( the set i have on now) I was soooo fkn happy. It was like rididg a Cadalac again on the pavement. Smooth as silk right up...

    Just viewed your report, thanks. We were thinking of running up Nahatlatch soon, so good to see a 1st person update. What surprised me was the block of the road(did I get that right) to the Nahat. Lookout. I have seen webcam shots of numerous vehicles up there this year: http://visiwisp.lyttonnet.com/app/camcon.php What's with that?Saturday we rode from just south of Boston Bar east to Gillis Lake and on to Kingsdale, back via Patchett Rd, Spius Crk FSR, Maka Crk north (or south) rd back onto Murray Lake rd to Murray Lk and then backtracked...

    I have the Motoz tires on my KTM 1190R. I have had very similar findings to Farp. Don't mind the rear but the front gets wicked head shake over 140Kmph. By varying the tire pressure I can get up to 150 but it's very disappointing. I have had the balance checked but I think it's due to the tall lugs.

    Bora and I had a good day checking out the afternoon of the A from six mile to Pritchard. Yes Dan is right, the creeks were knee deep in places, but after the first boots full crossing, all the rest are just a " YAWN, another one of these" A route is in very good shape overall. A few new blow downs, but we made it through, and the A riders will as well. we left the froggy swamp under Martin Mountain for another day, when it has had a chance to dry out a bit.

    Checked out Indian Arm but only got to about to about 10KM from Hwy 99 before i hit too much snow that I wanted to deal with solo and in my running shoes. I'd insert pics and the KMZ file but for some reason in Fire Fox I can not attach any thing. When I click Manage Attachments it just opens the window and has a spinning circle above Add Files that never stops. I'm emailing Tom

    Just returned from the area this weekend...Kookipi is "blocked" by a rock slide about 3 km south of the Kookipi/Nahatlatch intersection. A skilled rider can easily make his/her way through this...riding two-up on my DR, I wasn't about to try it. Along the Nahatlatch road itself, the bridge at 42 km is wiped out (according to the signs). We were hoping to make it to Grizzly Falls, but after seeing this sign, we turned around. There is another bridge to cross after that one, before you get to the falls. Ainslie /Creek FSR also had a large...

    WTF i was not thinking or more appropriately i was thinking too much, thought it was a 11am start. I will probably go to roche lake and check a few of the easier routes around the lake today for the C+ route

    Ashlu Main is closed at the bridge at the 7km mark from squamish main. Big concrete blocks are blocking access, but signage says 2 ton load limit for the bridge. So I'm sure fine on a bike, but standing there, alone, looking at the raging river below disappearing over the falls to the right I got a little sketched out and turned around. Ashlu A600 road is washed out at the river at the 12km mark. Beautiful ride nonetheless. And squamish Main has been graded at least until branch 200 where I turned off

    In actual fact in the 21" size the Shinko 700 works better in the dirt than the 804... The 700 has a 25% deeper tread depth which resists cupping and has a more positive feel in the loose stuff... I have the 804 up front on one of my 640s that I did 5000 kms of the TCAT on and it shows the same amount of wear that the 700s showed at 14,000 km... This is in the 21" size tire mind you, the 804 may have a better tread profile in the 19" design.. If you are buying a tire for straight dirt then a dot knobbie like the MT 21, D 606 and even the...

    I'm no speed demon, but do find that after 3hrs, +/- 30km @ McNutt, I'm near done. I'm not so much looking to smell the roses, but do, take the occasional break, especially with the increasing heat. Hope to see others @ 11:00 tomorrow at the gate.

    The snow is clear to the top from the squamish valley side, but the route connecting 200 Branch and Chance FSR looks to be a hiking trail. While I know it wasn't PC I did venture in and within 50 feet the bog I encountered nearly swallowed me and the bike whole. Maybe passable once it dries out, however the hiking community might not appreciate it.If I correctly identified Fbomb's snowmobile route it is not even close to passable on two wheels.

    We will be meeting at the Salt Shack at 10am on Sunday May 28 to ride portions of the LSDS A/B route. It needs to be cleaned up and we need to see how much the trail has been beaten by the rain. Should be an easier ride.

    Potentially. We will have to check with our insurance provider this year. If you pay and take care of all the extras you will need to do, this may be possible but the risk is all on you.

    That's all right, you don't have to like them - everybody have their favorites. Only I have a hard time imagining how more road oriented tire (700) can be better on loose surface, but I trust they are better for you, so that's all that matters really! ;)

    Tom, the tires are balanced and there is no trace of shimmy which there definitely would be if they were out of balance. I changed the tires myself as I have done many times over my 50 years of riding and I know how to get the forks to re-align themselves. I've experimented with varying tire pressures and the pressures I'm currently running have given the best results but there is still an unacceptable wobble. In all the times that I've changed tires I've never encountered this wobble problem before. I googled "Motoz Tractionator Adventure...
