9mm tread depth on the rear is awesome!
FWIW: SPORT tires like Diablo's run a 4mm starting treat depth.
ST tires like a Metzler Z6 run a 6mm starting depth.
The Adventure Touring tires seem to be around 9mm.
So just based on tread depth and profiles, this should be one long lasting and smooth running tire! Please keep us posted!
PS: if this thing ends up being "nothing more" than an RA with 50% more depth...well, I'm sold!
