Here in Vegas it is 50 or more miles of pavement to get to/from our riding areas. Hence the need for Dual Sport bikes. A typical ride for us is 150-300 miles of mixed pavement/dirt riding. Taking the few minutes to balance my wheels is worth it to be ready for anything. Side note- When doing our latest tire change my son found a 6 inch long crack on his front wheel. No ding. Dunno what the heck he must've hit. I guess it is time for a new rim.
