On dirt and pavement, both, it rides better.

You may or may not know......

On dirt there is no contest, the more narrow tires are a significant advantage. On pavement, as a general rule, narrow tires handle better and are lighter (thus more hp to the ground). Larger tires are required for traction when you're laying down more horsepower. Check out the tire progression from Moto GP to Moto 2 to Moto 3 bikes. Tire size gets smaller with each lower class. Moto 3 tires are tiny. If bigger were better Moto 3 tires would be the same size as Moto GP.

The width on these Woody's wheels is optimal for the DS. OEM is oversized for no good reason.

Hey if you were in Australia.... always thought the OEMs are much too wide.
I'd love narrower tyres on my Icon.

...and I think any serious dirt rider would have a KTM single or similar. (I know I'll cop it for that)
