I just rode the WFO mud and snow ride and hit the ground more times than I have in a year. Usually, I am a pretty good mud rider since I rode in Hawaii for 10 years and learned a lot on the "Hawaiian Ice". I was using a Dunlop 742 front and 756 rear on my CRF450 ( the stock tire spec). They had one ride on them, the previous week's Cowbell enduro. I am questioning whether it was the 742 front tire that was causing me so much trouble or just the conditions. I got very tenuous going around corners that were sloppy and had no berm to put the tire up against. Should I have used a more mud friendly tire such as the 773, Brigestone 201, S12, etc.? Or, was it because the 742 was a little worn? Or???
