This is just what I needed to hear. I think a lot of riders here in Colorado opt for the 140, as it is a much more aggressive tire, but since I load the bike up and ride 2-up a lot....the 150 sounds like the safe and reasonable alternative.

On the other hand......I am still considering the Mefo 150.

I've ran a couple Mefo 140's to around 6k miles. Everything from rocky mtn rocks to Nevada sand to long highway sections to get home. I've got the 3.5 inch rear rim so the 140 was perfect.

Currently trying the Heidenau and expect atleast the same mileage.

Has anyone run the Conti Trail Attack? I'll be doing a street trip later and don't want the vibration of the K60.

Trail Attacks

I just took a set of Trail Attacks off. They last a long time and stick to the road like a sport bike tire. They also stick to the trail like a sport bike tire would,not very well. They were OK on smooth dirt roads. Very smooth and quiet on pavement. I just spooned on a set of Shinkos, I've had great luck with them on sportbikes, they had good reviews and the price was right.

Did you go with the 705's ?

158 bucks for a front and rear.. I plan on using these for a street ride of about 3K miles. No dirt due to riding with Harley guy.

What would be the most agresive dirt DOT tires front and rear for a KTM 990 ADV R ??

Also, the Mefo and the Heidenau K60 Scout both get great reviews. I believe they are a tube tire. The stock Pirellis on the KTM 990 R are tubeless. Can tube tires be mounted on the 990 ADV R ??

The scorpions are also used with a tube on the stock rims, no matter "tubeless" is written on them.

Wow, I don't know how some of you are getting such good mileage on the Scorpions. Rode Alaska a couple of years ago and the rear was pretty bare at 4K miles. Full load on a lot of chipseal, which contributed to the wear, but it still was pretty surprising. My current rear tire has 1K miles and I'm about to do a 3500 mile trip. It will be on better roads, but still a little concerned about it after my last trip.
