Been down the trials tire route and liked them, they lasted forever, but looking for a full knob option that might actually last for more than five hundred miles. Maxxis ITs worked ok but they are not DOT... willing to go non-DOT if it is worth it, but the IT's didn't deliver enough mileage to justify risking a DOT ticket.

Any suggestions appreciated.
D606 (DOT) or Maxxis Desert IT rear, cross IT or Soft front (non DOT).

Wow, what a fiasco. Leading a group of 8 thru ACH, adventure bike?? pulled a u'ey right in front of me, crashed and grabbed a handful of throttle going down. No option but to gas it to get by him without getting taken out myself. Shaking my head and thanking my lucky stars when a SQUID decided to just cross the road from the right hand shoulder!- Never looked, just did it. Then got pissed when I called him a stupid F**ker!. What I imagine Sturgis to be-99% of the riders don't have a clue and endangering the rest of us!

Thunder storm rolling in and I am in the process of trying to take a crank pulley bolt off an Acura integra in the middle of doing a timing belt and water pump....fuck I hate front wheel drive cars.

Pb blaster , heat and an impact gun won't budge the damn thing. Just rigged up a 4ft breaker bar and a fulcrum to get some leverage on this bitch..yes I have the honda pulley holder tool.

4 feet of breaker bar and a 20" extensions supported/pivoting on a jack stand with my 300lb ass bouncing on the end broke it free

I miss having a lift sometimes

My compressor is probably only flowing 3cfm at 80-90psi...I think that is my problem..time to upgrade.

From KTM rep:

Here’s some additional information you need to know:
1. The RC 390 will be included in the North American street line-up for 2015.
2. The RC 390 will have its North American debut at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, California on November 14, 2014. Pricing and full specifications will be released then.
3. KTM Dealers will have the opportunity to ride and order the RC 390 at KTM Street Dealer Meeting in February 2015, with deliveries planned to begin in March.
