Thanks for the info! I think I'll keep the trailmax missions on the rear since I've had no issues with it and they are supposed to be able to go 6-8k miles. I just need a more aggressive front tire.I have the Motoz Rallz. Exceptionally grippy off road on SoCal mountain trails/fire roads. Haven't tried them in loamy sand, but they look like they'd be good for it and for mud. They are wearing fast-ish. I'll get about 2,500 - 3,000 miles out of the rear with about 70% time on the freeway getting to the dirt. The front is wearing unevenly due to heavy street acceleration/breaking burning up the aggressive, yet firm knobs. They are incredibly competent on tarmac / tight canyon curves. No idea about street rain performance. I'm not a skilled rider but these make feel extremely secure off-road and on streets...tons of grip. Will last longer than TKC80s which were my prior favorite big block tires on my tenere and ktm 690. The TKC80s are quieter on freeways, but I use noise cancelling Bose headset so it doesn't matter.
@brooke Never did the Stud Mill Rd. Did not hear of it before. Trans Lab could be done thru Newfoundland, just can't do the Quebec part. Would have to backtrack thru Da Rock again to get home. Gaspe is something I would like to do as well, but until the Covid gets under control, don't think you'll see the borders open for a while. Maybe next year.Thanks for the comments Q …
Hopefully things will be opening up soon so we get out for tour . A friend wants to head to St John’s but no plan yet . If the Trans Lab could be worked in I would more interested but that would require Quebec to get their act together ,even the Gaspe would be ok . Any idea on state side openings ? The Adirondacks and Poconos seem to be pulling at my heartstrings too . Have you ever done the Stud Mill Rd in Maine ?
