Things I've learned: don't haul thru mud. Just go steady with some momentum. It would have been a bit better with another person or so but its OK. I had a good time. Some good therapy.

If anyone wants to ride some dirt (se) lmk.

Glad u posted this! I just got a 50 and am wanting to put street tires and stunt it out a little but i still want to go off road in the back woods and play but was worried the street tires would hold me back too much, but looks like they did u pretty good!

Its mainly about technique. That and if u start digging in you can just kinda walk it out. Mild off roading is OK.getting is strait down and dirty is another. I think dunlop makes a street tire that is slightly more dirt oriented than the sl-26.

I've been through the sloppiest of trails in street tires on mine, it's a blast! A back pack full of cold beer always helps.

The orange Texas clay is where I had the most trouble. Granted it doesn't look as bad as mud/muddy water, but its some sticky slippery stuff.

Initially I was just going to roll in flip flops. But then I reconsidered and put my white polo shoes on. They shortly turned to orange/brown.
