I have had a few sets on ther DR..great traction..

But make sure you have a Heavy duty tube..The front are a little flimmsy..Work great for most conditions but at 60 over rocks they seem to flat our easily...

I had them on the DRZ S wheels and really liked them. I was convinced of them after riding a bit with Toronto Tom who led me and cheese on a "hey follow the arrow!" on his GPS when in New Hampshire. He threw his big R100GS around in grass, sand and even mud on those things. I did a ride down to West Virginia that included everything from the Turnpike to south Jersey sand, and they were excellent. Long wearing, too.

I ran 270's for 2 years or so on my CRF-230. Great 50/50 tire, it will so anything you need for a dual port bike. Did a lot of trail riding (read NETRA HS loops) and the only place they didn't shine was deep/greasy mud. The tire would tend to pack up and act like a slick until you got it spinning enough on drier ground to fling the mud out.

I wish I had a box full of product to bring up there. Sounds like a fun day even if you don't need to buy anything.

Doing great, thanks. It'll be at least a month before I try anything like that, and then I'll ease into it. I have a lot of garage work to keep me busy while I heal up. I really want to get into that CR500. If I could get that going, that'd be great.
