    I was thinking about that. Big difference where and how I would ride a 990 and my DRZ. Probably not a good comparison. Probably be a good tire for a GS, although my GS is ridden mostly on slab and gravel, so the Tolerance is a good tire for mine. :nod

    No pictures so no reference to your ridding on mud. :D

    Steve, I have run many pairs on the 990. For you I would think the rear tire would be just fine. The only thought is the front will definitely have less bite in the loose gravel and sand. That is what I had on that day we rode Panell rd and it was muddy. Hence the little bit of napping I did in one of those big mud channels. I would try one on the back first. If you like and find a good deal on a front you can try that later. I would recommend a 606 or TKC front if you find them cheap since you like the dirt a little more and don't usually get to stupid on the pavement.:D

    As I recall that day in the mud is the only time I ever saw you open that 950 up and play. You may like the fact that the back will break loose a little sooner on the loose gravel.

    I may just be better off to keep the MT21 combo because when I ride it will always be with you guys or in Colorado and the pace is always quick enough traction for the front tire is pretty important. Problem solved.

    I got in and out of a pretty big hole at Frog Bayou with them. Love em on my XT 250. Just the right amout of roll, just the right amount of grip.

    No way. It doesn't even come with a kickstand.
