Adventure Tire Report

Interesting user report by RTW Paul.

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.

"It's a friggen motorcycle, it's not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you shit your pants every now and then. "

Interesting; thanks for posting. His opinion on my preferred setup (though he ran them separately) mirrors my opinions: D606 rear and MT21 front - 80% offroad = great traction in all conditions and acceptable wear.

Cheers,
Dave
