Better off road tires


Recommended Posts

What is the best off road yet still DOT tire for this bike?

the stock Pirelli’s just don’t cut it for me as soon as I leave the pavement or even the backroads for that matter. 
I am willing to sacrifice on road performance for better off road. 
what are you guys running?

Pirelli Scorpion Rally front, Mitas E07+ rear. Will probably go with a set of motoz on my next set.

How do you like the Mitas E07+'s?  

Awesome on the pavement, quiet with a little rumble at lower speeds.  They spin a little more before hooking up in deep sand than I'd like.  The rear feels a little loose in the deep stuff as well.  On gravel and dirt roads they felt planted and brake well.  We cruised at 60-65mph most of the time and didn't have issues slowing down quickly.  I expect around 4k miles based on researching other forums. 


I found a 150/70-18 on ebay for $122 shipped! A decent savings over msrp and the reason I tried it out.  


The front scorpion rally kicks ass everywhere except fast twisty's, but that's probably just me wussing out 😆
