The new Dunlop Trailmax D604 motorcycle tire is designed for motorcycles with 12-inch wheels that accommodate a 120/70 front tire and 130/70 rear tire. That makes the Dunlop D604 compatible with the Honda Grom, Honda Ruckus, and Honda Monkey motorcycles, as well as the Yamaha Zuma 125 scooter. Further, various models from Vespa and Kymco use the 120/70 x 12 and 130/70 x 12 wheel and tire combination.As the name implies, the Trailmax D604 tire is patterned after street-focused adventure motorcycle tires.
According to Dunlop, the tread pattern is 80-percent street and 20-percent off-road. This will give the owner of the small motorcycle and scooter the capability of confidently accessing friendly dirt roads when necessary.MSRP for the Dunlop D604 120/70 x 12 front tire is $65, while the D604 130/70 x 12 rear tire has an MSRP of $72.

Our first segment introduces you to the new Arch 1s. This latest, slightly more sporting American V-twin, adds to the original KRGT1 coming from the boutique manufacturer based in Hawthorne, Southern California. Senior Editor Nic de Sena rode through Malibu with Gard Hollinger, who co-founded Arch Motorcycle with his friend, Keanu Reeves. The 1s is a unique ride for sure, and Nic explains what makes the bike really stand out.

In our second segment, Associate Editor Teejay Adams chats with multiple Emmy award-winning writer, Producer, Director, and actor, Thom Beers. the former Chairman & CEO of Fremantle Media North America, responsible for American Idol and America’s Got Talent.
Thom’s fertile imagination led to most of the really big reality TV shows such as ‘Deadliest Catch’ (now in its 17th season!), and many others. Of course for us in the motorcycle world, you’ll be interested to hear the genesis and story of how he started the first real fabrication reality show ‘Monster Garage’, that showcased Jesse James, and then how that led to ‘Biker Build Off’ and the ‘Zombie Choppers’ movie.
You’d imagine that most of Thom’s time is spent sitting behind a desk and on his phone. Not so. His intense stories of capturing much of the content for these shows make for some hair-raising listening.
