Good to hear that. You put some large mileage on them up and back to Steamboat, correct? How did the Motoz do overall? Would you mind snappin a few shots of the aftermath?

Its that time again, I need to get some new rubber soon!

Thx!!

Filled mine with water and froze it in the freezer a few times (I think 3 or 4 times) , worked well.

THey did do very well. The rear is squared off a bit from the monster 725 mile pavement day to get from Steamboat to Las Vegas. But even after 2100 miles this past week, they are in really good shape. I will get some pics later today or tomorrow.

FWIW: They are not fantastic road tires. They have a bit of a vague feel (the front) I am guessing due to the tall knobs. They never did anything bad on the road, just did not really inspire a lot of confidence when leaned over. They are also very noisy.

They worked very very well off road and lasted (IMO) really well. I try to stay on dirt as much as I can, and when I am on tarmac I just putt along, so the noise and vagueness did not bother me at all. I will absolutely put the MotoZ on again.

Awesome, I was racking my brains and I had wondered if I could expand it back out by freezing it although our ding in nothing compared with yours.

Will give it a crack when we have access to a freezer

I left a little of my Quigley 4x4 van's running board imbedded in the rock outcropping right about where the super enduro is parked. Going down that last grade to the valley was not good times for sure.
