you actually have a buddy?

In Internet slang, a troll (example: ADVRider's 'huckleberry') 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]

You obviously did not read the definition of internet troll. Just because you 'refer' to a post when you write your inflammatory, off-topic garble does not mean you are not trolling. Figure it out.

...And now you've stooped to calling names... wow.... very mature.

If you think I am trolling in any way shape or form you obviously don't understand what trolling is in the first place. Can you scroll up and read the definition or do I need to repost it again?

Just come to terms with the fact that you were trolling, let it go, and let the thread stay on topic of the Pirelli Scorpion Rally. It'll be better for you and ADV.

Explain to me how your post was 'referring' to anything pertinent to this thread.

Your post was 'inflammatory, extraneous, and off-topic' = troll.

Now go back under your bridge.

Can't wait to some of you guys get these mounted up and put some miles on them. I think they are at the top of my list of knobbies to go to once I wear these stockers out.

The front has been working nicely for me. Not much rougher than a TKC, but less traction on the paved surfaces. Seems ok in the wet, but I ride like a granny when I've got a wet road and a front knobbie. Really has good bite on loose surfaces. Hard packed dirt, probably about the same as a TKC. Haven't sunk it in the mud yet.

Haven't run a D606 on this bike yet, but from previous experience, I'd say it's pretty similar, but without that tendency the 606 has to wander sometimes.

Dave at Motohelp has a 150 or two in stock last time I was there. That is usually only a few days give or take.
