    As can be seen at the end of the video the tire has very little wear and it will get worse.

    Every Scorpion I have used develop this, knobbies actually perform alot better when letting go of the handle bars, T63, Karoo 2T, TKC 80, MT21, some of the more aggressive tires I have used.

    Next front rubber for the stock rims WONT be a Scorpion, like the mileage and handling and all but this is starting to annoy me.

    Conti trail attacks, you'll never be able to wear then out and they're better than the scorpions on roads and the same on gravel.

    Brilliant tyres. If you use Scorps then you are not really giving up much, if anything in terms of road/gravel.
    I've almost given up waiting for them to wear out... Something like 9,000 hard miles, and still looking actually ok? Like lots of life left.
    And this is from someone who averaged a set of tyres every 2,000 miles on my K13, and I ride the big KTM just as hard (just obviously with less power).

    I've got the same on mine, and they're still round and while i do occasionally drag knee and drift the adventure i spend allot of time on the highway too. I'm thinking about replacing the front because im getting some sidewall cracks but i think it's from the dings in my rims.

    I had a head shake last week - checked I had low pressure in the front - pumped up, viola!
