Welcome from Maple Ridge, BC. Your riding conditions are very similar to mine.
For the PNW, I STRONGLY recommend that your first mod should be a trials tire on the front if you are going into the back country.
If you do venture off pavement with the stock death wing air it way down.

Hi Everyone,

New rider here from Seattle, Washington. 2019 tdub...already itching to start the mod game!

Looking forward to meeting up for some rides and getting to know y'all!
What... is... up... PNWTdub! Washington is rep’n. I’m down in Tacoma and fairly new here as well.

You’ll have a blast doing the mods, minus the tires, if you like changing tires... something is wrong with you in my opinion.

Not tootin my own horn, the post just ended up with so many good recommendations it’s worth checking out for your bike:

We’ll have to see if some of the others in the area want to link up for a ride and get together. I need to get a couple more rides in this summer.

I can only speak for myself and for a half dozen others I have ridden with over the last 30 years of riding TWs on every type of surface there is and I have never had a single problem with the front tire.....from Deception Pass to Harts Pass...…. from Ocean Shores to the near deserts of Eastern Washington....just my two cents...

I hope to see you on the trail...

Welcome from Mt Vernon. Make sure and subscribe to the Washington state thread. Might just get some ride on there.
For my 2 cents, don't know it its the tire or airing down, but once I aired down (run both front and rear at around 12 psi, dirt, sand or 60 mph hwy ) these guys have gotten me up some hellacious trails. And I did change the front to a shinko.
Anyway, have a blast with it!

Welcome from Oak Harbor. After ten years figured I should get new tires so I’ve switched to a Shinko. I’ll see what kind of difference it makes once I get back out toward Baker Lake and Darrington exploring.

Enjoy the insanity.
