Tire is a Shinko Golden Boy Trail Tire SR244. I only have a couple of hundred miles on it, but it seems to work pretty well. It is what the dealer recommended when I picked up the bike. Not too rough on the pavement with pretty good traction in the dirt and easy on the wallet. Here are a couple of pictures from today's (4/28) ride in the foothills to the North of Boise . Great ride, a little over 20 miles on less than half a charge. It was about 3000 ft of vertical climb to get to the ridge, but lots of climbs and descents to get there. The electric motor makes it so easy. As long as you have traction the motor just keeps pulling. Sorry about the rotation of the one pic. I am not smart enough to figure out how to straighten it out. Looks good on the computer but when it transferred it is 90 deg out. IMG_2387.JPG IMG_2388.JPG

Awesome pics, I love and miss that part of Idaho. Is that South of Swan Falls dam? I had a ride last weekend in and around central Nevada on my EXR. Super steep and gnarly mountains. Went 38 miles and still had a little bit of battery left.

Pictures along the Snake are 5-10 miles east of Swan Falls and the other pictures are in the Boise Foothills just north of Boise. Glad to see you getting the EXR out and about, cool pics, thanks for sharing.
Okay, I forgot the Snake River turns east a little after passing through Marsing. As far as the Boise foot hills go, I know exactly where you are there. The one ridge looks like you took off from the upper ramp off of 8th street, and on the other side of Dagget Creek. I know that area very very well. I raced my first enduro just north of there at Mile High, aka Bogus Basin, aka Schaffer Butte, aka Deer Point back in 1984. The Boise Ridge Riders were a fairly new entity back then. When it comes to riding, I sure miss Idaho. So my only question is, did you go to the Highland Hollow brewery (aka Brass Lamp Pizza back in the 80s) after your ride?

That would sucko_O, better you than me. Need to get studded tires for that. Getting stuck in stuff like that is one of the reasons I have the LHRB though. Awesome to be able to keep your feet down and still use the rear brake. Anymore I try and turn around before I get in stuff like that. Not worth not being able to ride for weeks or months if I, or the bike, gets hurt. thanks for sharing.
