    It's funny you mention the loud Harley's with loud stereos . Just after reading this I was leaving my house for a bicycle ride and a overly loud Harley went my with the stereo on 12. Sad.

    Looking for some advice here...
    I want to come up from Long Island and ride the TMT this weekend, but here's my dilemma.
    My 450 XC-W is currently set up with supermoto tires. I have a second set of wheels with brand new AC10s.
    Do I:
    Ride up as-is with the supermoto setup, ride the trail, and ride home?
    or
    Change wheels to the AC10s, drive the bike up in my pickup, find a place to park, ride the trail, then pack up and drive home?

    Thanks for any info...

    I did it a few weeks ago 2-up on a multistrada with pilot road 4’s no issue. Just aired down a little. Trail was easy imo but it had been very dry for a few weeks prior. Hope this helps

    I don't think you can go wrong either way. It's definitely doable on supermoto wheels so no issue there. If it were me, I'd keep an eye on the weather. The truck idea sounds nicer if you're worried about wet, cold, fatigue, etc.

    Have a good time and post some pics!

    I had an AC-10 front tire on my DR650. It lasted about 500 miles. If you want to use those, I'd say truck it.
