Dual Venture Review?

Go to solution Solved by AZJW,

Recommended Posts

I backordered an Anakee Wild front from Sierra BMW in May, that was supposed to be back in stock on 6/22, but I still haven't heard anything about it. I think I'm going to cancel it and order something else.
Can anyone give me any kind of reviews on the Motoz Dual Venture front tire? My Tractionator GPS rear will be here this week, but the matching front looks far too street oriented to me. This is why I'm looking at the Dual Venture. I need solid cornering performance on the road with off-road performance as much better than the STRs as possible. I love the STRs on the street, but they have been garbage off-road. I have a tendency to get competitive on these mountain roads, so on-road cornering is important, for safety's sake. LOL
I also like to go up what others tend to call "jeep trails" and they can get rough. Pictures are of one of the trails I went up yesterday and where it lead to, after crossing 3 creeks and 2 rivers... As always, pictures do it no justice and it was STEEP, about 35°.
I digress. The Dual Venture; if you have it, tell me about it. Please and thank you.

I ended up going with the Motoz Tractionator GPS front and rear. They are way better offroad than the stock tires. However, they are also definitely not as sticky on road due to the harder compound. I got them mounted last week and went for a ride Saturday and Sunday. I ended up getting stuck in a downpour on my way home yesterday. Also (N. GA people will understand) I went through Helen, rather than around Helen; so I was stop (a lot of stop) and go for about 2 miles. Playing about in the rain, I found that trying to clutch up a wheelie in 1st or 2nd, it will either wheelie or spin like hell. Same thing for a hard 1-2 shift. These GPS's definitely are a bit looser on wet roads. That said, I prefer to ride offroad anyway. The pavement just gets me from dirt road to dirt road. Now, my bike mostly only spins when I want it to on gravel. Much more predictable and controlled, in general. Overall, I'll give the Tractionator GPS two thumbs up. 👍🏻👍🏻
