Nice work.
yea i love the shinko 244s and ran them on my xr650l, they railed on corners in the twisty roads for sure. the front tire on my bike is the 244 and the rear tw tire really hooks up on corners too. i think the 244 and stock bridgstone tw rear is a great combo and they even look like they match as a set! i think im set for on and off road traction now. i was messing with the suspension today and going to hit the trails tomorrow. i will also hit the twisty roads on the way.
