Tube or Tubeless for off-road riding
For aggressive off-road tires, what are you thoughts on tube vs tubeless? I've always been riding and racing 450s and they were always tube type tires (but easy to change anywhere). I have the little emergency stand to lift the tires up on my Versys, but it seems a little sketchy to me....? It seems like any accidental bump would cause the bike to fall and (even with engine guards and a skid plate) the tank area would get dinged up.
Given the weight of these bikes, the tubeless patch system seems to make sense. I would appreciate any experience with tire changing issues as well as tube vs tubeless issues on the trails. Thanks!
....and I know the Versys is not a dirt bike. I'm talking 4 wheeler trails, Jeep roads, and gravel roads (with no water!).
