Hey that is a good segue into a couple of questions I have. I've always run touring or performance tires on my bikes, for example Pilot Roads, etc. I am thinking about taking a trip up to Nevada for several days, bash around Rachel, look around, try to find some old girlfriends near Area 51, lol, and normally I would not hesitate to go on my Roads, but the other night I had a rear tire slide out from under me on a right turn at a stop sign, I rode it out and straightened back up without sticking out my fool leg, but it was a wakeup call, because the sand from water runoff was almost like glare ice.

Anyway, where I am going I've been told the roads can get dusty, and possibly I will want to go down some dirt roads on my R1150R, so was wondering about some tires with more of an all-season tread on them than these Road 1 tires, which have been great tires for me, but I'm wondering if some more all-season type tread would have alleviated that slide-out.

I kinda think full knobbies would slide out on sand on pavement.
I've ran Pilot Roads on the R1100R I used to ride, rode it on dirt and gravel roads in several western states with no problem. But never Nevada. Just watch out for sand. And mud.

Bill, thinking more about that stuff, you are probably right. I was thinking at first the sand may have been pushed up into the tread a little more if it was more open and let the rubber get to the pavement, but not sure if that would have been the outcome, maybe just a fluke. I know these Roads have a lot of solid rubber on the ground, may just peruse for some more open tread rubber if I don't get convinced it will not provide some more bite in wet/loose media. I realize knobbies would be better in loose, but I don't think there is much out there for an R in that kind, lol...although I've never checked

Or maybe it's me, I get almost paranoid riding pavement after hard rains because of the sand and gravel washed out onto the pavement.
But I don't think any tire will really handle that stuff.

Pissed #*@&*@ K60 Tire

I was unable to get that K60 mounted on the homemade tubeless rim. Got to within 20 of getting it on but couldn't get that last little bit. I tried everything short of unnatural acts to no avail.
I'll see if Ajax can mount it tomorrow but doubt that they can do it on such short notice. I have good rubber on the MEFO SE so it won't keep me from riding. It's just that I wanted to put some miles on that rim to be sure it held air.

Are you trying to spoon that on the Road King or the Shovelhead?
