Supposedly they're fairly thin: but I can't recall reading anything on this forum about anyone having a sidewall slice on a TW. Some of the folks around here do some pretty gnarly rides on these bikes; there's a video kicking around of some folks riding them in Moab, too. The rear has knobs extend quite far down, and the front is usually less likely to be victim to it unless you're riding in a razor blade pit, since it is undriven. That said, you're less likely to get a sidewall puncture on a bike anyway, because you can pick different lines than on a quad.
I think you're much more likely to suffer a straight on vertical puncture.

I replaced my old grips with a nice set of Pro Grip 714s ($9.99 shipped from www.motorcycle-superstore.com), swapped out my fuel petcock because it was nearly impossible to...
Have read lots of posts on the death wing front tire. I live in Tampa area and we have a lot of SAND (yuk). Just wanted to ask specifically for opinions on what tire is best for sand? If you have an opinion and can provide detail (exact size etc) it would be much appreciated.
