dry sand=haulers, wet sand=haulers, rocky sand=sandstars, sand with lots of roots and stumps or anything that might poke a hole in the tire then use sandstars.

Yeah LOL that's an understatement haha I am about to freakin hang myself! I swear it's rained more this year than it ever has. I hate it when people say "oh well this is the northwest get used to it" I just want to shove a hammer down their throat LOL I've lived here all my life (34 yrs.) and I'm used to it but it doesnt mean I like it any more!
So your headed to florence huh? Shit I wish I could go but it's too damn expensive right now for fuel. costs me a 100 dollar bill to fill up and it'll be 2 tanks (maybe less) there and back.

ya the rain is ridiculous! i just need to go ride! i havent rode since the summer and that is too long! :banghead: but im not exactly sure where ill end up. somewhere over that way for sure though!
But i feel ya on the gas, even gas for the bike is gunna run $4.00 a gallon! I live a few hours a way so i can make it there and home on a tank if im lucky!

It really needs to be summer and good riding weather soon! I see all these places that are already sunny and nice out and i envy them! haha

Yeah you only live about 30 minutes from me. It'll prolly take you more than a tank to go there and back unless you're in a deisel. I only get about 15 mpg at the most and even less when I'm towing.
