I just received mine on Tuesday - no back order from the source I ordered them from (petes superbike). I'm installing them on my new 19/17 wheels tomorrow - lets see how they do...

Its worth the wait since I can still put on a few hundred or a thousand klicks on my current Conti's T/A's.

Cheers,

Loved em. And they did great in the dirt. I was stunned at the traction on and off road

Hi Alon,

I'm looking for the Trail Attack 2 in the 90/90-21(54V) size. It curently comes as OE fitment on the big 2013 KTM's & BMW's.

Just spoke the guy at Petes Superbike. He said they did not receive any stock for the Trail Attack 2 as yet & have an ETA for the 15th of July.

I guess that arrival date must be for the 90/90-21. I mounted my 19/17 setup today and so far I love them - need to scrub the, some more and then hit some twisties :)

Yes it is for the 90/90-21. They're fabulous tires. I'm curious to know how the handling on the 17/19 set up & what rims have you got on?. Are they the rims from Woody's ?
Enjoy the new tires & ride safe

I went with the Alpina 19/17 setup and 110/80-19 and 150/70-17 a d a solute my love the setup. True tubeless and the handling is incredible. I chose the Alpina o et the woodys because I didn't need bomb-proof strength for my street wheels and i didn't want wheels that had to be sealed for tubeless.

I put a 120 19" on front & 170 17" on the rear (Woody wheels.) the bike handles nearly as well as my 690 SM did- it totally transforms the feel of the Adv. The TA2's were very sticky even when new. I've not ridden them off pavement yet.

Hoping to go for a decent length tarmac/gravel ride today - will report back soon but so far, the TA-IIs are very impressive on hot roads.
