You got that right on West Marine having a good price. I just looked at Garmin's site and they are asking $49.99. So, I wound up ordering two from West Marine for the DRZ and my R1100S.

I likely will put more miles on asphalt than dirt as a matter of getting to and from off road excursions, but am looking for a tire in the 75 off/25 on road category.
