Bugger I have finished reading the RR. Now I have to go outside and finish my chores.
I have ridden some of those areas and deep sand on a heavy adventure bike is no fun IMO. Mitas E09 tyres will never grace my front wheel again,. I think they are too small in radius? for sand and tend to dig in making the bike want to pitch you off. Ask me how I know this! My fractures are still healing 12 months later.
Not enough flotation for sand, OK for anything else though. They are OK on the rear end.
