    Duro power grip install.

    So I went into this place today and ask if I could get a ATV tire installed on my TW and the answer was no problem we have the tools and super lube bring it in! and we also do all service and repair cheaper then the dealer.

    With a Duro PowerGrip you should feel a lot more secure in those desert sand washes. Welcome to the superior traction club.

    After getting sideways at S Margarita on a sandy/pebble corner maybe a duro is in the future for me.

    That also happened to me so I slowed down and then got so far behind I cut my Sunday ride short I did not want to hold the Pro's up!

    Well, the Duro is not a miracle cure all the time. Something about the pebbly, sandy roads of Santa Margarita had my Duro dramatically breaking free in a few corners. Sliding that way was a first for me, much different than the progressive feel Duro usually gives churning and slipping in mud, snow and sand. No wonder Bananachunks tire slipped on him causing a spill. It was analogous to a smooth, firm dirt road that got strewn with marbles.

    It was exactly that, a hard road stewn with marbles. Even on the straight road it wanted to wander. Truth be told, I just went into the corner to hot and caught some sand on top of marbles and the rear just let go, went sideways and just about highsided it, but was able to hold on and drop a couple of gears and continue. After all, there was one of those 650 rockets right behind me and bedang if I was going to go down in front of a youngster lol. Would have been the talk of camp.
