Kenda Big Block?

I ran a Kenda Big Block as a pusher on my R1150GSA Outfit for a while. Far too much whine. Far too much rubber coated the back wheel and luggage after 110 kph highway use as the blocks disintegrated. It was brilliant on the couple of short dirt link roads I did at slower speeds, but way too 'blocky' for tarmac use. The Heidenau Scout was a much better compromise, particularly when you want to park on wet grass!
