Drake and RacerXXL's Holiday Wheeling Marathon!

You Ever Just Feel the Need to Wheel? Drake and I ended up at just such a place. We had to go wheeling!! Both of our jobs require ludicrous amounts of time on the road so we rarely get to wheel during the summer so we have to pack in as many trips as we can over the Holidays. So we compared schedules and came up with a plan.

Today we went out and checked out how well our new KM2's would handle the rocks and I got to go run in my new rear locker at a local spot. To make it even better the trails were dry, the weather was perfect, and only 2 trucks on the trail!! The trail takes about 3 hours up the mountain and maybe 1.5 back down.



Drake trying to find the line he had and lost.



The whole trail is just rocks and staircases it may be my new favorite.











Get to the top of the mountain...



Eat some lunch.....



and turn around and go back down.





May have some video later.

That does look like a good time. You're making me want to go wheeling right now! Maybe I can talk the wife into a late night run and watch the meteor shower

I love these tires so far, same for Drake. They grip rock well and were very good in what little mud we ran through. From what I've seen from others on line the only gripe seems to be they cut side walls easily. The stuff we were in today was not extremely sharp, fairly heavily weathered Limestone, and only one trip on them so hard to say on my end. For certain the KM2's took a lot of side wall hits today because I rashed up all four new rims. They do seem to take a lot of weight to balance but any big aggressive MT is going to be like that. Most surprising thing to me so far is how quiet they are on road, hardly any noise at all. My Duratracs were far worse at highway speeds even when new.
