i need front and rear right now, and I sure have been happy with my dual 908 setup.
First Front EVER that didn't give me rocky road pinchflats.
That's $15 cheaper for both than Motorcycle Superstores, still with free shipping!
MS does not carry our Motorex, either, but BB does, and gives more points. Win/win

Tkc

I like this tire but less that 1000. miles on a rear is not going to cut it.

TKC 1/2 price...

Bought 2 TKC's from MSS on Black Friday 2 for 1 sale last year. I've gotten good wear mixed use out of them. I love the tread design but wish they had stronger sidewall. And I wish the tread on the rear was harder for wear. I actually like them as they wear past 50% for street riding. I always milk an extra 1000 miles out of them that way. The trick with these tires for me is max. inflate them and use speed through the sand more so then tread.

But I'll be ready to try another option after my spare TKC, 3000 miles or so later.

$195 for one tire is still outrageous, and at regular price that 908 would cost more than a 285/75/17 for my pickup.

Good lord.
