    The 4snows get really big when aired up. The ones I run are from a company named unilli or something like that. They are 4 ply so they don't balloon up like the 4snows or the original pro wedge. There is a 6 ply version made by SUN tires also. I'm not sure but I think the original pro wedges only came in 8" inch as they were factory option for the 200x back in the day. The unilli brand are only $99 a pair shipped (amazon or ebay) and come in 9". The 6 ply from SUN is $30-$40 more.

    Yes, that's what's on the 450. For some reason those type of tires don't work as well on my 250R. But I really like them on the 4 strokes. I only run 4-5 psi on them also.

    From my limited research over the last 18 hours that seems pretty on par , high power two stokes 250r and banshees etc) dont like em but all the thumpers do. Probably something to do with the initial wheel speed when your dumping the clutch vs a thumper is a bit more gradual. Thanks for all the info guys.

    Pull some strings man, make it happen. When you're sitting in the sand you'll be happy you did.

    True words.

    It's a lot of windshield time.
    It flies by on the way out.
    Seems like forever on the way home.
    I only have 1/2 as far to go as some of you.

    Worth it every time.

    Any and all are welcome to join us. It's not limited to 3 wheelers only, bring any sand toy you wish to ride. As we all know the skill levels are different for each individual so there's different group rides going to different destinations, experts, racers and what I call family rides. Bring a little firewood as there's usually a group campfire at night.

    My wife went with me both times I went. She had a bad accident at Rasor a few years back and busted herself up pretty bad, so she is a cautious rider now. At the Invasion there is all levels of riders and plenty of women riders. I did the early rides with the "big boys" and then a later one with her with the riders that prefer a slower pace. She actually ended up doing a lot of duneing with Cycle guy Steve in his sand rail back to the "big" sand. The people that go to the Invasion are all really nice and very welcoming. Male, Female, young ,old.

    Bring your wife. She'll have a good time and finally see that there is a lot of other people that are into trikes as much as you.

I'll be arriving early and should park/camp somewhere near past years locations. Hope to see old friends and meet new ones.

    Post up if your planning to go.

    Look at post #8 where I've attached a localized jpg map of where we have camped the last couple years. The location is in the "Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area" also known as "Glamis - Sand Dune Capital of the World" south end of dunes between El Centro, CA. and Yuma, AZ. Several members come from the east coast including a couple from Florida.
