Talking Wee ADV bike?

How about a new CB300 with a 19" on the front and a set of Heidenau tires for a wee, cheap ADV bike?

My KLR's were notorious for approaching "tankslapper" conditions. Easiest fix I found was to either loosen your grip on the bars or take one hand off. Always worked for me.

Rear tire

How does a Dunlop D803 radial compare with Michelin radial. The Dunlop is new, 2005 vintage. On a Scorpa 4 stroke. The original Michelin is cracking and tends to leak.
Thanks, Chris
