Tyres....

I'm leaning towards the Mitas at the moment. Bummed that Pirelli don't make their tyres to fit my rear wheel.

So, E07 or E09.... I guess I'm aiming for maximum off-road ability in the ACT region... for the warmer months... ideas anyone? Is the 09 really noticeably better in the rough stuff?
I've had multiple E09 Dakar and K60 (old version, no centre rib) and can honestly say the E09 has way better grip in the "bad" stuff. The K60 is a "dual purpose" tyre. Not bad on the road, but really shows it's deficiencies in the mud and loose stuff. Lots of sideways action going on when it really shouldn't. Locks up quite easily on dirt roads, which isn't a bad thing when you need a bit more angle into a turn. Digs holes in sand and just spins.

The E09 is pretty much a full knobby and lasted as long as the K60's do on my 650, but I did notice a slightly perceptible buzz or vibration on the road. Lost two lids from my tool tube with the E09. Have never lost one with either of the two K60's. I put it down to the vibration working the screw lid loose. But noticble difference in grip off-road, both in drive/brake, and lateral.

D606 on the front, but am going to try the touted Pirelli Scorpion Rallye mentioned here for my next front tyre. The D606 has angled knobs quite badly now at @4,000km. The Kenda BigBlock did too. The E09 front wore much better, but had smaller knobs to start with than the D606, but about the same as the Kenda. Definately feel more confident with the D606 over the others. Front wheel seems to grip and track better off-road.

thanks.

and even though I have limited experience, I can tell you that the Scorpion Rally I have on the front of my KLR700 has been confidence building.... never once have I felt like it wasn't up to the task... dirt, road whatever. Okay maybe once you hit 150km/h it gets a bit neeeehhhhh but on the dirt it has been great.

Mine is now up to about 8000km on my KLR (with plenty of road miles).... it's getting close to the end of its dirt life, but it still grips well in the dry.... and yes it starts off with deeeep knobs. Def recommended. I'm not even gonna bother testing any others on the front.

And after the throttle repairs we had a few hours rest on top of Misty Mt latterly accompanied by the Police, Ambos and Southcare. One broken leg and a dodgy shoulder for one of our party. First name starts with P.

Well that's rather shite.

Is there anything that needs to be done re bike recovery / relocation etc????
I can help.

My gf just mentioned to me that the last time I went on a group ride, someone ran into a truck (after I'd left).

Damn.

Police, Ambos and Southcare sounds pretty awful ...

Was that a collision with a vehicle ... ?
