What was the verdict on these? I just picked up a pair in 120/90/16 to run as front and rears on a 92 EX500. Little oversize on the front, but only *just* outside the RRW for a 120. Hard to find dual sport tires for 16" rims. Could have gone with the K761 in the right size (100/90/16) for the front, but as this bike is totally mad-maxed out, I opted for the beefy tire look.

Obviously performance isn't my first thought here, but I'm going to have a blast on dirt and gravel :P

wear bars are starting to show at... let me check 3800 miles on the rear of my 1100gs its a 140/80 17 size.

this bike EATS tires.

its been a great tire, Ill run it another 500/600 miles and replace it for $77 shipped, since its still got tread even in the center of the tire.

longer than most other (aggressive) tires, and it works well everywhere ive tried it.

sand and mud are crap, but its not much better with a tkc or bigblock in those situations with a 600 lb bike.

Hrm, I may run the Duro HF904 on the rear then, instead of another one of these VRMs. It's tubed, but it's not nearly as flat a profile as your VRM looks there.

it starts as a very rounded profile, if you look at the earlier pics.

but yeah, tires are so personal and subjective to personal usage , I understand not everyone will end up with the same tire.



I will be ordering another one of these within 400/600 miles though
