I will replace it with another tire, but have not yet decided what is available here. I will go with a dual sport tire.... It is always the same Tire life, grip of the tire, and price. They have Continentals at the dealer, but TKC's wear fast (not too bad in the front though). I have been hauling my spare rear Heidenau which I will put on somewhere soon.

Road conditions in central america and south will be a mix of pavement and rough gravel/dirt. I am more comfortable with the idea of a knobbie of some type.
