if you want more aggressive you will have to play with sizing.

The maxxis seem to have good reviews. I was hoping to stumble across an actual snow tire but I think i'll end up going with those. Dennis Kirk is fast too.

He's commuting, not racing. But I'm sure he'll ride these tires like he's racing and crash the Grom again...... and again and again and again and again and again

CHyeah buddy. I hate driving my truck, so I'm going to snowmobile suit up and ride the grom through whatever shit fest MN has to offer this winter. I am waiting to see if Denniskirk will price match those Maxxis tires but will end up going with that rubber for sure. Now I just need my cages to show up so I can stop breaking shit every time I crash.

I have seen dedicated Snow motorcycle tires, but they are European. There is a Chinese tire by Cheng shen that are great in snow, but I don't know if they make 12's.

Just stud the summer tires. It's an equally scary idea as commuting on that thing in the winter, embrace the insane.

I'll have to do a write up after the white stuff starts to stick around. I should have the Maxxis on this weekend along with a new paint job. I'll post pics hopefully on Monday.

One day when I crash hard enough to break the bulb I plan on replacing it with the dual LED headlight. Until then I am going to leave it. Why fix something just to fuck it up again. It'd be like making your bed every morning...yuck.
