I'm a big fan of the EO 9 rear, especially now that I can get them in a 140/80 x 18 size...

I've got to agree with your observation of lack of aggression on the T 63/EO- 9 front tire: I also found the tread depth too shallow for my liking and the low profile of the tire give a higher risk of pinch flats and dented rims... I won't run these up front anymore ...

This thread is top shelf, keep it coming...
For such roads we now use Mitas C02 and C05. For heavy motorcycles of anything more aggressive doesn't exist. BMW GS800 has about 10000 km with them.
