I beg to differ regarding tire pressure. Low tire pressures will cause a wobble, at least it did in my experience, I had a rear tire that went soft, so I pumped it up, checking the valve stem. Rode it about ten miles, checked it again and all was good. Relaxed a bit and about twenty miles later I "thought" I felt a wobble, but I had checked the tire and it had been fine. So, I figured I was paranoid and ignored it. Five miles later I was in the ditch. Scraped knee was the only injury as I was wearing all the gear except riding pants. Jus sayin....
and again; low tire pressure may cause a pre-existing condition to manifest but it isn't the underlying cause IMO.....with proper suspension mods and setup, my KLR's are rock steady at 80 mph with full knobbies at 21 psi....

I've probably burned up close to a dozen sets of Shinko 705's on all the bikes I've owned over the years. They are a great dual-sport tire with decent longevity. I always stuff them with IRC tubes.
They aren't the best off-road tire, but that hasn't kept me from plowing through mud, snow, and everything in between :p
