trials rear tire

I looked for it so sorry if it has already been talked about.

I have herd about using a trials tire for desert riding.

Any thoughts? Experience? Thanks :applause: or:thumbsdn:

I do about half my riding in Colorado. Me and all of my riding friends in Colorado have switched to trials tires and love them. I have tried them here in the deserts of southern Nevada. They do OK on most of the hard packed rocky trails but don't work well at all in loose sand. I have gone to the Maxxis Maxx Cross Desert Intermediate tires and love them for desert riding. Just my opinion.

I keep saying Im going to try one....I ride a lot of rocky singletrack..Do they wear quickly..???

from what i have been told they last 3-4 times longer than a knobby. but one this that is conflicting is how well they work in the sandy stuff (washes,ect) i think that i am going to go with the michelin X11 or the dunlop.

They work great if you are a rocky trail rider, down side No mud......not great in deep sand.....must learn throttle control...don't want to spinn it a x-11 with a tube about 15 will love it....

good stuff. thanks

      Trying to buy an older yz125 w a green sticker. I came across a 2004 that is green sticker. Per the owner "CA used to do a lottery thing on a certain year and bike and it was the 04 125 that got the green sticker". 
      I am gonna confirm the VIN, but was wondering if it's in fact true that CA issued green stickers with a lottery system for 2003 and newer bikes?
      I tried searching and couldn't find anything. 
      Thank you all for you advice.

      I just picked up a 2018 YZ250X and need to do my break in. How gnarly is Rowher Flats after rains like we just had? I'm thinking about heading there Sunday. I moved to LA last year and I've only been there 3 or 4 times, but so far I enjoy the riding there more than most of the "day trip" locations.
      Not the biggest fan of Hungry Valley, but I imagine HV is ok despite the rain this week.
      Side note, how bad does the road in to RF get after weather like we just had?
