Taking the GS(xr) offroad w/ street tires

For all of us who have pushed our oilheads down rotten muddy tracks with street tires, enjoy:

I hope all the squids who plan to put their wide bodied 4 bangers in the rough get to see this.
Horses for courses, first priority.



This is plenty big enough. It's a twin.

Entertaining video

I once rode a GSXR down a forest two track but it was dry and pretty smooth. No issues there. Went 5 miles or so, but that was the only time. Prefer using my 690

You wonder if the guy is going to ruin some stuff on that bike. Water naps cannot be good for it!

Entertaining for sure! He sure isn't the sharpest tool in the shed...

This pic was from a road trip in Virginia last August and while I don't have the pics available, two of my riding mates were on sport bikes: GSXR-1000 and an SV1000.

This stream crossing was 1 out of 6 or7 on that road. Both sport bikes stayed up right and ingested no water. Indian vs. the arrow I suppose.

I was on my brand new 700 mile old GSA and to say the least, I had no excuses to not cross any of the streams!!! Can you imagine the rash of crap I'd get if I couldn't do something a GSXR1000 did??? lol

He mumbled those words many times. "I need some knobblies. " He must've said that half a dozen times, too bad THAT didn't occur to him B4 hand!!
