I put those on my Bonneville. Road traction seemed on par with Sport Demons wet or dry and I had no chickin strips but easily more than twice the wear. (i'd get 3-3.5k out of the Pirellis)

My off road excursions were limited to gravel roads and a few forest roads, stream crossings etc... nothing too extreme. I never had a fault with the tires, mostly when it got tough I was worried about the ground clearance to engine!
They did allow me to pick lines through the worst of my mild excursions and return to tarmac unscathed.
A more capable bike may find limitations I did not.

Thanks for the reply.

That's about the extent of traction Im looking for. Any more serious and I'd jsut go with a tkc80.
