Well lads. Got back last night from a weekend away to the Paddy Dakar event here in Ireland. I put the Karoo 3 on especially for this event. Drive down on road, do the event 60/40 road dirt, drive back. Around 800 Km's in total. The tire was good on the road. No rain so cann't comment on that. Durin the event on the Forrest tracks and mountain trails it didn't leave me hanging. Not even once. I was confident at all times and really drove it on. The bike went where I wanted when I wanted. Even in the mud the tire didn't spin up. Loved it. (I have a Karoo 2 on the front.) there is a lot of wear for the distance traveled but most of it is from rocks etc. I'll keep you posted and I'll add pics later.
