Tires
« on: August 17, 2020, 09:32:31 AM »
In the never ending quest for the perfect tire for the Adventure I'm trying the new Dunlop Trailmax Mission. So far, while not the holy grail by any means, it seems damn good! pavement performance is fantastic far better than the TKC 80's I had on previously. It also out performs the TKC on the gravel, much more stable and while acceleration may not be any better the braking is noticeably improved. I haven't tried them on too many trails yet, but they seem to work well in dry, rocky stuff. So far these are the best tires I've used they claim near K60 wear as well, we will see?  Thought I'd share in case anyone else is in the tire market.

I have a new set waiting to be mounted up on the Super Tenere.  I was going to mount them up for use on a June trip to Red Lodge for cruising around the Big Horn mountain back roads but decided I could squeeze one more trip out of the TKC 70s that were currently mounted.  The reviews were so glowing and calling them the holy grail so I can't wait to give them a try.


I also can't wait to get these Moto Z Tractionator Enduro I/T mounted up on the Beta 500 to try out for the Black Hills fall rally next month.

Ive tried the tractionhaters. was not impressed at all. The front was really washy in the loose corners, no warning just gone.

For the 300 I have not found a better combination the. mX52 front and AT 81 rear.  The fronts a little washy on gravel but you can ride around it.  The rear hooks up even when itís worn down to nothing.  Iím sure the ibex is better but I canít afford to replace tires every other ride.

i have been considering the Motoz Tractionator GPS for the T7 when the stocks wear out. They have gotten some great reviews as well with great wear, similar or better that the K60...  So many choices.

they were on my list as well.  realistically probably 90% of my riding is pavement or gravel so I aimed more for the best performance there, as well as wear.
