It was my intent to post some pics, in that thread, when I had a chance.


As for me, I've had 'em on my KLR for quite some time. And, I love 'em. My rear tire is about to turn 4000 miles (a buttload of slab in there, too). It has worn well, and doesn't seem to have any funny handling traits.

As with anything, it probably depends on what you're riding, and how you're riding it. So, YMMV...

I just spooned some on my KTM 640adv and they seem to be decent. I've only got a few hundred miles on them though. I could't argue w/ $110 a pair. They ride smooth on-road and don't seem to follow pavement grooving at all. Offroad they are about like you'd expect. Airing them down helped a bit but they're still a 60/40 tire. They seem to be a good option if you are doing some commuting or distance on-road and don't want the wear rate of a TKC80 or D606.

I've had 777s on street bikes. Like them a lot, the price is amazing.
