You'll like the TKC's, they'll give you considerably more traction. Can you put full knobbies on it? That was the saving grace of the aftermarket rims on my KTM, was that I could run the full-on dirt knobbies on it, which made a significant difference.
Yeah, I remember helping you pick that 950 up like four times going into Louie Lake! Not sure about full knobbies. Weren't you running a 130 D606 for awhile? I think there will be a lot of new tires coming out in a 150 size the next year or two. It's getting really popular with these middle weight adv bikes. Kenda has the Big Block out and I think that may just be the beginning.
