  1. GoldenTyre is an Italian brand that's very successful in Enduro (the whole RedBull Romaniacs podium used GT tires, and also lots of wins at Erzberg) and is putting out some very interesting Adventure tires. I recently put a set of GT201 tires on my 1190 Adv R and I'm quite happy with them. They also have in their offer a very interesting Rally tire (GT 723) which just now became available in tubeless sizes suitable for the KTM 1190 Adventure R and the new Africa Twin: https://www.facebook.com/GoldenTyreWorld/posts/1201557823197337 If you check their catalogue (http://www.goldentyre.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Catalogo_2015_2.pdf), at page 4 you'll see they're also available for 19/17 Adventure bikes. If anyone has experience with them, please share. Only thing I found is an older review:
  2. Stock rear Scorpion at about 10k is on it's last leg...with the other foot on a banana peel. I have a new Shinko in the garage...but I'm poor, in debt and cheap....can I push it a few hundred more miles of freeway commuting? Be gentle...my 04 KTM 950 ADV has been a VERY expensive girlfriend. Looking forward to better/chunkier rubber but if I can I want to stretch this as far as is remotely safe to do.
  3. I got this info at AIMExpo and thought I'd share since MITAS is one of my favorite brands (E09 Dakar mostly) and people are always asking where to buy: Durelle Racing Elizabeth, CO durelleracing.com Motorace Wilbraham, MA motorace.com RawHyde Adventures Castaic, CA rawhyde-offroad.com Twisted Throttle Exeter, RI twistedthrottle.com K and J Racing Solutions Saint Amant, LA 225-315-3423 Treats HQ, Inc San Francisco, CA Treatland.tv

    Superb bike that does everything very well. Had this bike for 3 seasons and it was spectacular. Also, contrary to expectation, it has been PERFECTLY reliable. Perfectly, as in: I had NO issues. Zero. Nada.

    I've been riding for for about 28 years on many different genres of bikes - from dirt, to cruiser, to crotch rocket. I have to say, this bike is by far the best I have had the pleasure of owning and riding. It's versatility, quality, and capability coupled with it's reasonable price point make it a win win!
  16. I was at the KTM Rally a few weeks ago and snapped a pic of a new set of tires they are releasing for distribution soon, the Motoz "Tractionator Adventure" series (70/30; tubeless). This one pic alone got a reach of something like 17,000 on Facebook! I'm happy to announce that I'll be testing a set of these shortly on the XLADV project 990. I've seen their Tractionator Desert H/T tire and it is IMPRESSIVE! These are 100% natural rubber tires and are built to LAST longer and keep their grip even when worn down. Motoz is pronounced "moat-oz" with the "oz" referring to Australia, where the company is located. The tires are manufactured in Thailand, which is the #1 supplier of natural rubber. Got news today that Motoz has yet another new adventure tire they are releasing Spring '16 and can be seen next week at AIMExpo, booth #613. All I've been told is that it's a 50/50 tire and is also tubeless (can also take a tube if you like); also that 17" rears will also be available in 2016. Motoz is being distributed here in the US by Pacific Powersports of Temecula, CA. Behold, the "Adventure GPS" Which of these tires would you be most likely to try and for what type of riding?
  17. Who's mixing what tire brands/models front and back? I know this is common for enduro dirt bike riders, but how about when you spend 50-60% of your time on the street? Any issues to consider there? What are your experiences in the quest to find good street manners and solid off-road traction? What witches brew combos have you tried that worked out well?
  18. Woody's Wheels are legendary. Isaac shows here why you'd want a set for your bike If you ride your big bike off road a lot and are tired of changing your tires from knobbies to road tires and back, it may be a good investment to get a second set of wheels. Besides, they are lighter and stronger than your OEM rims and will stand up to the abuse. I have run a set of them for about three years now. No complaints

    If you have a long ride ahead, and you know the conditions will be rough, a Motoz Tractionator motorcycle tire is the right choice. The Tractionator Desert is designed to handle harder terrain, especially hard trails, desert sand with hard pack variations and fast rocky conditions. Its unique patented tread design handles off camber sections to help climb out of ruts and hard braking at extreme lean angles. Made from 100% natural rubber, nothing else provides the same elasticity, reflex and deflection for the best traction Designed for 95% dry and 5% wet, 90% hard and 10% soft terrain conditions Heavy duty case construction with a dense weave ply cord so greater strength and higher ply rating is achieved with less ply layers Constructed with thicker side walls for maximum strength Sidewalls and rim area are specially designed to protect the rim, but also to minimize pinch flats Vertical reinforcement section between the sidewall layers for greater sidewall strength Carcass is protected by a thick layer of rubber under the tread and around the sidewalls to help minimize punctures Rubber cushion zone allows a small amount of flex under the tread blocks to aid reflex traction and reduce chunk off, increasing tire life and acting as a heat sink to help cool the tire in extreme conditions Terrapactor tread block design and placement helps compact, compress or wedge the terrain creating extra traction, drive and lift This unique concept coupled with the use of superior rubber quality works to lessen the impact on the terrain and provide extra traction Crown Radius Section specifically matched to the application, not just a heavier motocross tire Specifically designed for quick fitting and reduced service times Good for long mileage, hard packed desert (like sand over concrete) Excellent absorption and puncture resistance for outback and dirt back roads Known all over the world for being dependable in the toughest conditions - used in desert racing from Morocco to Baja This motorcycle tire is tubeless These dirt bike tires are R rated for speeds up to 106 mph DOT approved Available in the following motorcycle tire size: 90/90-21
