    9 reviews. 4.4 of 5 stars. On a 1979 CB750 – trip started in the rain and the tires handled perfectly, loved the tires on the back mountain twisties, went right through soft sand as well. On a Buell Ulysses XT – lasted 6,000 miles, virtually all the miles on mountain twisties and forest service roads. On a BMW R1200 GSA – felt the rear tire wore somewhat quickly, 5,000 miles, good tires, handle well. On a Ulysses – all the grip you would expect from a supermoto tire, got 4,500 miles which is somewhat low, tires warm up quickly, offer high levels of grip almost immediately, good road feel and confidence inspiring right up to the limits of grip.

    5 reviews. 4.2 of 5 stars. On a DRZ 400 SM – very good on road and not bad in the dirt. Another says great tire, handles well on and off road, highly recommend to any fellow supermoto guys. On a Kawasaki Versys – replaced Pirelli Scorpion Sync, Avon Distanzia much more comfortable leaned over in the twistys.

    Tested on a Suzuki 650 V-Strom and were impressed. Tread design is confidence inspiring for typical 80/20 street/dirt. After 5,300 miles the tires still have a lot of tread left. No abnormal cupping, little road noise, wet traction good, performed well in twisties handling much like a street tire.
