Probably the worst tire ever for the street. I mounted the paddle on Blueskies rim (friends 950), and had my friends that were trailer'n out take it for me. I road 4 hours to the sand dunes (50 miles of dirt 250 street). Switched to the paddle, road the rest of that day, and until 5 PM the next day. Then, switched the back to the 908, and road 5 hours home (got lost somewhere on an Idaho dirt road.

Also, had a flat front from some lava rock that I hit in the dunes.
Also, had clutch give out on me. (flushed w/ 10/50 Motorex to get me home).


And, this thing kept us entertained at night.

2 weeks ago, we went to play in a river bed about 100km's north of Pretoria. My baby looks so fine in her natural element.
