Sr Dopra- Yes, that's a Dunlop 908 on the 18" wheel. I like that tire quite a lot and have been through a half dozen or so. It seems to handle the weight and power of the HP well without burning up in no time like others I've tried. I think they use a hard compound and have a very rigid carcass. Still I've not tried a Michelin Desert--it's supposed to get good mileage too, but has tread that appears more dirt-focused than the (very dual sport) Dunlop.

I'd love to hear reports on the Mich Desert of anyone's used it on long highway and dirt trips!

I also keep waiting for Mich to release a new heavy duty dualsport tire as I saw pics of prototype tires from Dakar a couple years back...very cool
