How many of you enjoy trail riding instead of or in addition to street riding? Since we don't have a Video Forum I'd like to start a video thread focused on Trail Rides. If you have a YouTube video link, please reply to this topic for so we can view and talk about great experiences and some of the challenges. Let's try to keep it on topic. I would love your feedback and will most appreciate keeping this thread going with Trail riding video.
So, I felt like the stock MSX tire is fine for the street, but pretty weak on any kind of trail. I wanted to try out a dual sport tire which could work on the trails and the road. I decided to try out the Shinko 244. There are other options out there that people have tried, but I really liked the look of this one. The problem is that tire lists the width at 2.75". Then the specs show that it is at 2.95" which is only about 1/8" wider than the stock tire. So, I thought, it should be fine. However, inflated the tire really measures about 3.25". Ouch, so what to do? I had to use a belt sander and sand that thing down on the sides to make it fit. I also had to take the entire wheel apart in order to sand the housing and give it a little more clearance. So, for the rated difficulty of installing this tire, I'm not sure I can recommend it. But I LOVE how it works when finally installed. Virgin tire - road only at this point. Time to get dirty... Morning ride after San Diego rain. It can get a little muddy out here on these hills. But the views are great. As you can see, I definitely need a mud flap now because the nice upgraded one from eWheels won't fit on this tire at all. Loose soil, sand, bark, gravel, straight up mud are no match for this thing. Stable and solid like it's glued to the road from what I've tried so far. I'll let you know how it's working once I've put a few more miles on it.
Has anyone figured out the miniPLUS "PATH SHOOTING" ability to RECORD a physical PATH or TRAIL or ROUTE that you ride or remote-control-steer - then somehow you inspire 'go' and the miniPLUS autonomously drives itself along this PRE-recorded path? Used to drive a camera around / among the photo/video subjects. I hope "the camera" (obsolete/changing) is NOT REQUIRED for this function. In the miniPLUS User Manual it states (page 23): " Path shooting: using the App’s advanced functions, the user can manually set a path, or automatically record a path by riding the miniPLUS or using the remote control to drive the miniPLUS. Then simply replay the path and record amazing video. " Manual depicts a circular orbit around a subject AND a "S" snake serpentine open path of straight, left & right turns. Any clue where these "Advanced Functions" can be found? Thanks Wilbur
