They're probably like the Pirelli MT60RSs on mine.
Great on pavement and dirt....until the dirt gets too wet as they are terrible in mud. The tread depth is very shallow and they pack right up and turn into slicks.

Reminds me of the stock Pirelli scorpion trails that came on my F800GS. I thought this bike can handle the dirt right? Then rode those fucking tires through some mud and felt like I was on greased ice skates. At least until the bike did a 180 and spit me off.

blah blah blah not what i asked...look i'm not making any grand schemes to evade cops in the UK i'm just curious what car it was. yes, helicopters are faster. yes, radios are useful to the pigs. in fact a guy was going up to 166 and riding in the 130s-150s on the NYS thruway and just got caught because thruway workers would radio the police when he passed them.

when he got caught at a gas station near new paltz he said "she can go 190"

Suzuki Riders

The gsxr riders in my particular area are 10 times worse than the hardcore Harley riders. So this is my favorite for ignorance and spending WAY WAY to much money in the shop as the dealers are sitting around like "yup, gsxr is the best!"

Don't blink, you might miss it. And, yes, let's see someone do *this* on a GS. :)

It's nice to see the king, and how they used to handle lappers in the way.

I hadn't seen that, what a blast! Love the floating down the river part. Cool little bikes for sure.
