front is a kenda big block. left over from when i bought a bunch for my now (not)dearly departed f800gs. correct on the rear. giving it a whirl - everyone i've talked to says it's a good choice and cheaper than the 908rr which i prefer. just so damned expensive and i end up always taking them off when they have 1/3 of their life left but don't want a used tire on the upcoming trip (see 908rr in picture - still plenty of life left on that!).
i run the xcmh (front & back) on my berg 570 but never tried the rally. i'll consider it next time i need to swap out the sneaker in front - except i still have a second kenda to mount when this one goes. i figure that's probably about 3 rears to go before that happens...damn thing eats tires!
Karoo 2 (??) on the front w/ a Tractionator rear?
Ever tried this
front tire? I've had great luck with it... holds it own on pavement but stiff sidewall and good bite for all-around off road.
Great bike. Wish I was packed up and heading out too! Have fun![/QUOTE]
