    Any idea what front (probably rear) tire this is?

    Checked out the sidewall for evidence but couldn’t sleuth up much. Getting nearer to needing a freshy and like the aggressiveness of this front tire and beyond that the look of the whole bike 😉

    Would love to get something more grippy on the rear as well for the ice like clay we have here. I’ve spun enough surprise 180s going up and down even just small hills here.

    Michelin Cross AC10. Not positive but that is what it looks like. 120-90-18 tire size is available as a front tire in this model.

    It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.

    Man who runs in front of motorcycle gets tired. Man who runs behind motorcycle gets exhausted.

    Yes that is a Michelin Cross as Dryden-Tdub said. It also looks very much like the Pirelli Scorpion Pro I just mounted on the front of my bike for the very same reason. Ice-like red clay that I have to deal with anytime there is enough moisture to make things sure feel "icy".

    Is there a US Forest Service approved spark arrester on the exhaust pipe? I am just curious.

    Actually looks like a SuperTrapp muffler hiding down there.
    Their diffuser discs had tight enough spacing to meet Forest Service spark arrester requirements when I used to run SuperTrapps on enduro bikes.

    Thanks everyone will most likely be running this when it’s time to replace. Too bad there isn’t a matching rear. I could get away with running an atv rear here but don’t need that much aggressiveness on the road. Something in between the bridgestone rear and an atv would be ideal.

    I’ve slid enough accidental 180s this year

    Thanks for the question and info on the exhaust. I was intrigued in what it was but figured a custom job altogether.

    How likely is that thing to get packed with mud and water sitting down there by the rear tire?
