    I have a Desert IT on the rear and for the life of me cant get this thing to wear out here in FL. Awesome tire for price, takes a beating.. Guess that is why its for the desert, rocks, sand and crap like that.

    Non DOT tire though but I am sure it is good as Maxxis makes some great tires. We always ride the roads quite a bit so we stick with DOT tires.

    I wish I would have known as I have a brand new one here I could have sold you when you needed it. It's the heavy duty version part number:
    LFX14L2-BS12

    As far as lasting goes...don't ever let it get discharged past something like 12.866 volts (resting voltage) or it will kill it. Another thing is keep it dry. The cases on those (at least the earlier ones) are not sealed very well and a water crossing gone wrong with a submerged bike could ruin your day in more ways than one.

    Anyone else see Zach Bell's crash last night in Dallas? I can't believe he came back and qualified in LCQ!

    He showed a lot of heart. I hope he comes back and wins the 250 East!:clap

    That fella has a lot of heart. He's going places if he can avoid getting hurt.

    I'll be waiving at yawwl next saturday night from the Georgia Dome if Speed Channel will shine their camera on me.

    Used to live in Crestview FL, now ????
    Can you carefully try to see what shape the o-ring is in? If it was just loose and didn't damage the o-ring, you should be able to put it back together and tighten it back up. Let me know what you find. I probably have the parts on hand if you're in a pinch. I have quite a few o-rings of that size but not silicone, probably one or 2 silicone ones as well.?

    Does yours use a bolt and washer, or a big nut and splined washer? Mine is nut and washer, which I have spare. Bolt and lock washer, we can probably source @ a hardware store. Or.... Call Chip @ Munns.

    Thanks again for the info on Cheaha. The wife and I went up camping and hiking and got back last night.
    If you can stand it being chilly it's a great time of year to go up since we practically had the campground to ourselves. It's a great spot and I can see how it would get busy in summer.

    Just a reminder about my 3rd annual Camp N Ride coming up March 8th-10

    If you have heard stories about my singletrack but have never been over to ride it, You need to make it to this event. There is a very high chance that I will be clear cutting all my timber after this year's camp out. It will be a very long time before they are like what they are now. :cry:cry:cry

    Just ordered the course arrows & tape :nod

    I'm currently making changes to the DS ride loops. So plan on seeing some new scenery along the way.

    Here is this year's thread
