    I never really thought about all the tarmac riding. I'm rethinking my tire choices. I was going to use MX 51's for the whole ride. I've used those in the past pre-running for the B1k. Maybe just the good ol' reliable D606 is the ticket.

    :lol3 He rode from the end of the last stage on day one to the finish line on the flat, I was following him. The Motoz's are really tough!

    We let it cool off, plugged it and filled it with air.

    To the left is my cut 908. At the time of the photo it did one stage of Dakar and the first day of the MX1K.
    I ended up changing it for another 1 stage Dakar 908 to do the last 2 days.
    Had mousses front and rear.

    Worked perfect, and I will run this again but with a fresh tire this time.

    Did you use the 606 on the front also? I'd considered the moose route, but (cross my fingers and knock on wood) I've had good luck with Bridgestone UHD tubes with slime.

    No kidding? That wore well. I've never used them. Another possible tire option. I have used the 606 on the rear for long D/S riding here in Idaho. They seem to wear well for how I handle the throttle.

    No I ran (1) Maxxis Desert IT with a moose the whole way at the Baja 1000
    The D606 rear will work great for you on your 450x

    I am still working on my Tire deal for 2013 but I will be running Mooses front and rear at this years MK1

    I ordered a few sets of Pirelli Scorpian Rally tires for my F800GS. I ran these tires in a local sandy hare scramble, and they performed well. Does anyone know how these tires will perform in a desert race?
