I've been running Dunlops, Q2s on mine at the track and I plan to go with Q3s when the 2s are shagged out.

Bang for the buck the Dunlops are hard to beat and in the same class as the Pirelli Super Corse that came with the SMCs.

Granted I have not run any of the SuMo specific tires like the Attacks or Dists... but I have yet to find the limit of the grip of those Dunlops running a mid/quick intermediate group pace without doing something unwise or sliding the rear a tad on the brakes.

Though the 690 is light by Sport bike measures, it is pretty heavy by proper sumo comparisions

I have nothing to add regarding any of the street tires, but last weekend I met a car on a blind curve that was well over my-side-of-god-damned-line - I laid the bike over like it was a Ducait Corse SE. Scrubbed the crap out of of my boot tip and tucked it in to miss the wide-eyed idiot. Didn't think too much of it until about a half-mile later when I remembered I was on the stock knobbies...

Updates on my 2013

Managed to get the touratech crashbars to work with my flatlands racing skidplate. I am sure this will be good news to some of you. All that needs to be done is cut the skidplates mouts in half so it can slide in a little further without hitting the case.



Took her out for a spin yesterday and had fun running through the foot deep puddles from all this rain we've been having.




You can see that I have the r&g sliders, front and rear as well as the exhuast slider. Trying to keep it pretty since it will surely be taking a few naps. As you can see I have put a lot into this bike and I am running out of things to do to it. I just need some supermoto wheels!

Those mirrors won't last long ...

Double-take are a good solution ...

Just bought a pair of doubletakes from another inmate yesterday! Hopefully they will find there way to my mailbox sooner than later.

Palmstate,
What hand guards are those? That's my next move after the canisterectomy this weekend.

Thanks

Acerbis Multiconcept. Similar to the supermotos but dont have the sliders on the side.
