The front tire says it all


Been wanting to make that trip myself. Heard the cops have gotten worse lately, guessing that why you see so many Groms & Z125's??

It was my third trip and equally as fun as my first. Friday was low traffic and no cops. Saturday brought a few hundred bikes and a few cops. It was the first time I have ever seen a radar gun out. Honestly, they let the bikes get away with having fun (speeding), and were only pulling cars over for crossing the double yellows.

There were only a few Groms out this trip, one was riding really fast and holding pace.

My tires were toast after two days (2300 miles on them). Put a fresh set of Q3+ on the last day.

I just been there on May 1-5, loved it. Yes, if you never been there at all, do go for the first time experience, you won't be sorry.
