Not likely...Just keep the front wheel down and the Po Po should leave you alone.

Thats my logic

Great minds think alike.

No probs with The Man, thus far. I think my pipe will be an issue before the Maxxis.

Yeah the IT is neutral .....you know like Canada. It doesn't say off-road use only or DOT. I suppose a sharp county mountie could bust you because it lacks the actual DOT numbers but I'll take that chance. BRP smile

I've been running one for dual sport use now for about 500 miles and it shows very little wear. I'm impressed.

I'm not sure about canada being neutral, but the mounties have a hell of a time catching me on their horses! naughty

Back40, I have relatives from the Salmon River Bench area of BC. More from Montreal and and a bunch from Quebec.

They are all pretty neutral. And most of them speak funny. Including my wife.

Between work and the weather I have not had the chance to try them out. Hope to go riding this weekend.

The Michelin M404 is a good long lasting tire if your riding hard surfaces!
