Short Ride in Colorado Foothills... Love the way this bike handles. The Trailmax Mission are good tires on gravel and tarmac - gotta try them on Rock, Mud and Sand next...

Looks like you have done the same kind of stuff I have with the Trailmax Mission. So far I am really enjoying them. Much better road tire than I would have guessed for a 50/50. They definitely ride more like they are in the 90/10 to 80/20 range.

I haven't tested them in wet either. We have only had one day of significant rain here in Colorado since they were mounted and I wasn't able to ride in it.

Hopefully can expand the testing on other terrain this month.

Yeah.. I say they handle like an 80/20 on the tarmac... they stick. I loved how they did on the gravel even with ribs on the dirt, they stayed true. I will keep on updating as I experience more and more.

Got out for a nice ride yesterday. Bit foggy to start the ride but just starting to burn off in this picture.

Very nice photos Kyle. Colours appear intense. Raw photos, or post-process touch-up?
I must admit, they are touched up by myself, only done with an app on my phone but I feel that the touch ups/enhancements that I put onto the photos only make it slightly more enhanced than what the real life view is.

Either way the photos do come out quite nice, Scotland providing the amazing scenery as always 😁

Little ride towards Woodland Park, CO - I Love this bike... About 15 minutes after these pictures I dumped it on a huge rut... I was dumb, riding alone in a remote area. Took me nearly 45 minutes to pick up the bike because of the angle in how it fell (handlebar and seat in the rut, wheels in the high center median on a downhill slope).

Glad to read you are still okay @JJ Mendez. Needless to say, your remote excursion was adventurous.

Thank you.. part of the adventure right?.. but I tell you something.. I am seriously considering this... MotoBikeJack Portable Motorcycle Jack (Black) - Buy Online in Fiji. | motobikejack Products in Fiji - See Prices, Reviews and Free Delivery over 200 FJ$ | Desertcart

I might never use it, and I have picked up my bike before (that was one of the things I did before I bought her, but it was in nice flat grass with a side panier in place).. but I rather have this than to suck wind for 45 minutes.... lol
