Anyone else think this rear looks very similar to the E-09? (I really like my E-09!)

Pssst, Bayner, you're gonna get in trouble for bringing the E-09 into this...this...Scorpion Rally celebration thread! It'll be detention when Ms Griz finds out.

Instead of writing lines, I think you should post some more Googled images of the tire in question.

...now where's the sarcastic emoticon....

Not my bike. Sorry. Just a pic of a rear Scorpion Rally.

You are so cunning and hilarious Batron. You're so amazing with your troll skills.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_%28Internet%29

"In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[3"

Sounds a lot like you.

See, the thing about it is, I like to talk about motorcycles and things motorcycle-related on this motorcycle forum, instead of coming on here only to dick-swing and prove my schoolyard superiority like some people.

...now where's that sarcastic emoticon?...

Lighten up Griz, the world can be a happy place if you let it, not everyone is out to get you.

It was a light-hearted jab at this thread going off-topic consistently, as new tires are brought into the comparison, and your attempts at trying to keep it on point.

If you think there's any more to it, I'm afraid there isn't - but I don't have an internet reference for you. Over and out.

The plastic tube under the Victorian (?) number plate - That will be an Australian annual registration label holder :)

Interesting!

You Aussie's have some different things down there.

No, it's NSW in a personalised colour. Only NSW use the AAA-NN format, plus you can see the letter "N" at the top right there.

Of our six States, four of them (and one or maybe both of the Territories) use stickers to indicate currency of registration. In a car you stick it to the windscreen, on a bike it's meant to be displayed "adjacent to the licence plate". It has a printout of the vehicle details - VIN, GVM, make/model/colour, licence expiry date. They're colour-coded - registrations that expire in 2010, for example, are on green stickers and in 2011 are on orange.

Since these things are largely redundant in the days of character-recognising cameras, Western Australia and South Australia no longer use them. I'm sure the others will phase them out soon.

You can see my green label in this old pic of my bike, fixed only semi-legally depending on your interpretation of "adjacent".

Looks like we're still waiting on the 150 here in the States. I hope Pirelli doesn't pull a Heidenau on this one.

I went ahead and got the front tire, but I haven't mounted it up yet. It sure is a good looking tire. I'm using a TKC right now, and I'm hoping the Rally has a little more bite in the loose stuff. I did notice that the 17" rear is 30 bucks more than it's 18" counterpart. Those tire companies sure have our number don't they?!

Hell yeah they have our number. Agreed.

I'm hoping the 150 comes Stateside by mid-Summer. We'll see. It's a great tire. They do hook up better than TKC's, and apparently last just as long. My buddy has a set on his DRZ and likes 'em.
