PM me the dates you will be there. If this job ends around that time and there's no other work, I might head down there. Long shot but worth a thought anyway.
K60 Scouts, had them on my F800, they are a high mile tire, probably a 60/40...

round

I just put a Heidenau on the front.
.
I'll see how it pans out.

All I can say about it now is that it is black, round, holds air and has a rough bumpy outer surface.

On that 990 does the front tire ever wear out when it spends so much time in the air

Tried a lot of tires, these are the best so far. Only tire I haven't tried is the mefo.

Heidenaus got turfed after 5k, they scared me.
Interesting, you are first person I have heard that has complainede about the Heideneau... I have not run them on my GSA, was considering them as the Anakee's are nearing then end of their life...
Was the tire too agressive for the hiway for your liking?

I just checked the MX1 Site and the prices look good, will do some more research on these.

Some shots from 2 rides.
Made a quick run down into the backroads of Northern Minnesota






Had a package to pick up at Rydens so it was a quick run to Grand Marais on the dirt and stop for lunch.





And back up Hwy 61 to T Bay





And then got hooked up with Lappeman to do a little more off road kind of stuff.
He had a bad start to the day. +4c and his KTM's battery wasn't happy. In his effort to get the bike going he said he got himself good and warmed up.

Headed out towards Shabaqua and then south and west. The recent frost is bringing out the fall colors.



Got to Shebandowan and headed south. Lots of bird hunters out but not many birds.







We got down to the Boreal Road and inspired by Ron and Steve's ride into the Aldina Tower decided to give it a try.
It was still a challenge being sunny and dry. You guys must have worked hard in the wet



The trail into the tower is really getting grown in.



One good washout on the way in. I think Lappeman has helium in the KTM tires. It just kinda floats over rocks and washouts



There's one very large frustrated bull moose out there. He sure tore up this stretch of road.








Heading up for a look.



Got to the top and the view is great. When we got to the top you could see a fire off to the north east. Turns out someone's house on Kuusisto Road was burning.







The trail out to the south has lots of rock sticking up. Managed to bend a foot peg back on one and put a good size dent in the skid plate on another.





One last mudhole to make things look like a real dirt bike ride.




Headed back up the snowmobile trail to the Boreal Rd and then the Glenwater Rd to Shabaqua. It was +27c in Shabaqua. Great day for a ride. Thanks Lappeman

I've been running the Conti trail attacks on my 950 since the Dacre. (not in the Dacre lol). I'm surprised how well they hold the dirt roads for something that feels like a street tire. Besides everything slides around at 160. :eek:

Couldn't keep air in them. They'd lose 10 lbs on a morning's road ride. Wasn't just me, 3 gta guys had the same problem. New rear design means a solid rubber strip 1.2" wide on centerline. That means no bite unless you get it over. When offroad... really ups the challenge factor.

I got the set from my gsa still, 5k on them. Free to whomever wants them. I sure as hell don't.

I read about the problem with the Heidenaus, too. In cold weather, the sidewalls are too stiff and they leak air because the tire doesn't stay sealed to the bead. Might not be a problem if you're running a tube.

I have heard a lot of folks running tubeless having trouble keeping air in them as the bead does not get perfectly set due to the super stiff sidewall. Once the bead is fully sealed you should not have any leakage issues hot or cold. One fellow lubed them up, put them out in the sun to heat, filled with 50 psi and a few taps with a rubber hammer and the bead finally sealed. My friend with his 1200GS had a few small leakage issues for a bit but they resolved themselves.

I have them on my F800 and once on gravel there is a lot more than just the center line biting. I put close to 18,000 k on my rear before getting a deal on a new one in Vancouver and my friend's 1200 has over 20k and still riding his and both of them included a trip to Alaska across the top of the world, up the Dempster and the Delanai hwy.
