To Z' Sand Dunes

Thinking the Z' has concord everything I've put in front of it . time to see how it does in the dunes . Ya , Pure, Deep, Soft, Sand Dunes . I Headed to camp out last night close to the back way into the dunes , due to easier slopes to get into the dunes . Picked out my way up to what looked the best way in but only made it 3/4 of the way up the first slope . and there's another 1/4mi of slopes before reaching the sand dunes ...
.
Time to Just Say No ... I would try it again with knobby's instead of the street slicks that i was trying to ski uphill with, but just to ride around the lower edges of the dunes .

As in the 12" Diameter ?
.
Fighting front end tuck in all of my sand-washes has been a constant battle . I was thinking it was the street tires or the short wheelbase vs weight ? ,
I don't know anything about the small wheel diameter factor ..
.
I'll go goggle it , or anything else you know about it post it up

slide back on the seat and gas it if you have the right tires and can get up on the plan you will be good. I would think about 20 mph to get up on top of the sand.

Kenda 761's Report

Tested the Kenda's today. I headed out to the local off-road park to take a run at the steepest , longest hill out there . and WTF I actually made it up , I was just going to see how far I could go for laughs ... so with new kendas making me think I'm Joe-moto plus adrenaline plus luck took me up . but it wasn't pretty' I was step-in and fetchen most all of the way up . I need a Go-Pro
.
Overall not sure how much they helped climbing but quite noticeable how stable the bike tracks on trails now, and a good 30 percent improvement in the steering in the deep sand with 16psi front and 22psi rear
.
Of course there's no taken pictures on the way up , but did get some pic's on the way down . (disclaimer) Nothing ever looks step in pictures
.

Rock On Ride

Short morning run out to the local off-road park to take a run at the steepest , longest Rock out there . and WTF I actually didnt made it up . My 15t sprocket was not my friend today, I could not get a momentum run at it because its a 45 degree angle from trail to start of rock . I did get to slide back 3-4 feet to a ledge where i could park it and grab a few pic's.

I just ordered some knobbies and I'm taking the z125 to the Dunes at Sand Lake Oregon next weekend. I'll be sure to post some pictures and I might take my go pro and get some videos of what the bike can do out there. Looks like you were pretty successful out in the sand kaw'ee. Cant wait to tear it up out there
