    Grooving a Death Wing? Now, there is an exercise in futility!

    If I ever wear out my golden boy, I am thinking a trials for my next one. I think they will hold an edge on soft dirt better.

    Yeah, the 241 feels like a soft compound to me and it sure is sticky. I have no idea how long they last but at $50 we’ll see with not too much care

    Welcome Painless.
    Ouch!
    That looks like a painfull way to introduce yourself to the Forum.
    Heal up and then post some pictures of your new front tire in happier circumstances.

    Painless eh? I wish I had no pain when slinged up like that. I'm a grown man but I cry when I get hurt. That looks like it hurt!

    When I looked like that it was from a loose hikers dog and a mule I was riding not the death wing. The dog and the hiker had a death wish. Lucky for them I was crying. haha

    The front tire IS that bad! I finally got mine on the pavement on a curvy road, wow, I had no idea how bad until then. 241 on order.

    The Death Wings has a long lived & intercontinental legacy. From the past south of the equator: note the near wash-out around 0:29 .
