I had a Scott's on my 640 Adventure and I loved it.
Lol, thanks Jon, I meant to actually link your thread to here so that it becomes an awareness issue. I will do a tire swap in the front also and report back on success/failure of getting rid of that wobble. Those 908's are awesome for everything BUT pavement and it seems the 990 front end geometry accentuates it. Cheers and kudos for adding that!!! (T63 has been my favorite front tire for 8 years now... so cheap and great for ANYTHING! They wear fantastically too imo.)

*Edit: Jon's wobble thread
