Looking for 2 Maxxis Desert IT 120/100-18 from local shop???

Postby TeamOatmealPie » Wed Sep 13, 2017 11:24 am

Seems my order that was supposed to ship 9/8- is now back ordered until mid-October. That is not gonna work for our annual 1500 mile dual sport trip as we will be on the trail.

So now searching the shops from Vancouver to Bend. Any one else love this tire and know a shop who stocks them.

Half tempted to drive all over PDX- almost seems easier then calling.
As you can guess it is amazing to call 8-10 shops and try and talk to a human. I think the owners should try calling their own parts departments and see what the average person experiences.

So if anyone has a suggestion of a shop that regularly stocks Maxxis D-IT, please let me know

Why the Maxxis Desert IT? Because of the stiff sidewall and the traction is predictable. Mated with an Mich Ultra HD tube/4 mil you have a very good combo that is unlikely to get a flat.

I tried Motosport, Rockymt (had already placed order), MotoSuper Store, BTO, Chapparal and Amazon, all the big online retailers all say out of stock. Seems odd there isnt a single tire out there

I am willing to drive to most any location to pick up a pair of these.

Thanks in advance.

It sounds like you are pretty dead set on the Maxxis Desert IT..

But, I can vouch for a next best (or better in my opinion) option with this MotoZ:

https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/74 ... Enduro-I-T
120/90x18 Tube Type Motoz Tractionator Enduro I/T
Part# 1544610004

Either way - Call BentLever in Vancouver,WA and see if they have what you need -

Thank you for the suggestions. Hadn't even thought of eBay.

Learned to love the Max D-IT mated with a Mich ultra HD tube- 4 mil. This combo holds up well
to the abuse of 1500 mile mostly dirt dual sport ride. Last few we have staged out of Bend or Fields looping down
into Nevada and Idaho. Jarbidge NV is an awesome place to ride too.
