Tires, tires, and more tires!

Thanks to Ross Shields of Michelin I now have the best tires available to the privateer, the Michelin Desert Race. The Desert Race was developed for the lighter 450cc rally bikes and only available to the factory backed teams last year. I’m looking forward to running these  tires!

Michelin supplied the rear tires and Bobby Wooldridge of BMW Husqvarna of Atlanta helped me obtain the front tires and bib mousse through Parts Unlimited.

For those not familiar to rally racing, flat tires are bad news. Bib Mousse are foam inserts that simulate approximately 12 psi of air in the tire and are not susceptible to punctures and pinch flats.
