Coming back from Vintage Days last week.







Because I have an SE, I haven't even mounted the 21/18 wheels yet. Probably the reason it stays so clean too

Absolutely not. The pursuit of a 990 is a worthly life goal. Of course, after you have it, then you have to make new goals...

re: the T63. Unfortunately it doesn't work for me... I really don't like how it handles the weight when it is pressed hard (sadly.. because I had high hopes for it).

I haven't decided what to try next yet


The T63 is made for lighter bikes, try the Mitas E09 Dakar or the Golden Tyre GT205 in H speed rating. They have similar profile like the T63, but are stiffer. Or try the Pirelli Scorpion Rally front, a friend of mine had it mounted for our iceland trip and liked it alot.
My standard 50/50 tire now is the GT205 GT200 Kombo, on aspalt you can round the edge of the outside knobs and drift very easy, in the dirt its good as long you don't stop :) on sharp gravel I shot one rear :(.

Golden Tyre:
