What have you settled on as the best tires for PNW Ryan?

Thinking back now I remember the buddy was you. Ya Cam is a friend, you're just a buddy.
How progressive? Other than saying that the 2017 Enduro is slightly less progressive than the 2018 I'm not sure I can quantify that. I agree that bottom out control would be great but this test was simply a comparison of Ohlins STX22 vs TTX22 matched with RFX36 EVO air vs RFX36 EVO coil.
I would love to do the test you with progressive springs. I was riding with a friend today who has an Ext coil in back $1200 CAD, Vorsprung Smashpot up front ($420 CAD) and his bike feels great; other than the 40 lb weight (he does have tire inserts too). I definitely wouldn't want that much weight even if it meant a super buttery feel.
Gradually our vision changes as our skills improve, but this change isn't static. It responds to the bike we are riding, the suspension, the tires and brakes, and to our mental and physical states
I remember riding Grannies with Cam and a buddy in the nineties. We came to the rock roll at the end of the trail, got off our bikes and analyzed it like golfers scoping their putting greens. We looked at it from different angles, discussed it and after 5 minutes we were standing to the side of it and a group of riders came through. 3 guys hit it clean, then the last rider, a female, rolled it. We looked at each other and without a word grabbed our bikes and hiked up and we all hit it. So add sexism to the responses to vision change.
Rule one with Mr. Wilson, he likes up as much as down. Rule two, add heavy rocks to his pack.
I have something to add:
and the Asian Caucasians:
Dammit - why did I check the site before bed? Why was my name included to make
the personal guilt of the weekly ride rockier? I remember when I rode
snowboards with Brent Martin of Ryders (Bugaboos at the time). He talked of a
set-in-stone Wednesday night ride. I had no idea what Shore riding was back
then let alone doing it at night. But I liked how they were committed to
making an unstructured sport structured so it would happen. What Cam left out
was how we would put our little rocks to bed in their early years then meet
for 8 or 9 pm guilt-free rides. It worked well for awhile then….what he said.
When I played hockey and the schedule came out I made sure I was there, when
my kid plays sports I am there…we riders need to just schedule it and then it
is set in stone, big stones.
Thursdays nights are back. Who's in?
I loved Revy on the big bike. Can't wait to go back with the small bike and hit all the epics Lorraine and Bruno raved about. I hear you can get glacier ice for your scotch on a few rides.
Not just a pretty beard. Morgan you slayed that. Oh and Matt you were pretty good in the photo booth section.
Third - beat Cam. Kyle rocked AirP and keeps getting better.
