Went for a ride on March 8th and came across a new dirt road. First time with the F800 off road and ran into a rough new forest road. It was good for me to get back off the pavement but because I did not have water, tools and my SPOT, I turned around to be safe. Will go back to explore soon though. Watch in HD and full screen seems to work best! I edited this down a lot…
We use these tires all the time. We commute on them, we have taken to Alaska in 2011, cross-country in 2010, been on the Triumph Tiger 800XC bikes we borrowed, got over 14,000 KM on that set, got over 19,000 KM on the set after going cross-country on our Beemers and now Leslie has over 23,000 KM on the set mounted on her Beemer. We keep the PSI at 36 most of the times and they seem to not want to wear out.
Revzilla has a good review as always on these tires. Anthony states they are a 50/50 tire. That is how they are advertised. We would call them a 60/40 maybe 70/30 tire. They are not a super knobby so expect a ton of traction in sand and deep mud. Having said that we survived a very wet Dempster and Dalton highways. Tires are subjective and you need to find your way by trial and error based on your riding styles. We commute on these all the time but love the fact that if we want to wonder off-road we have a tire we can trust underneath us.
This is WHAT ADV riding is all about….those who ride the pavement only…need to watch this more than folks like us! 😉
Following a disappointing outing at the first round of Eddy’s Extreme Enduro at Buxton, Farioli KTM rider David Knight MBE put in a spectacular performance as a reminder that he is still the Tour De force in British Enduro. Fully recovered from a recent hernia operation he put on a show by consistently jumping a 4 metre wide ditch on his way to an outstanding victory in the second round of the series, lapping all but Graham Jarvis in the process.
