Anybody know when?
Mid march according to Revzilla?
Indicated mid March became end of June (Europe) when I put an order and paid it. Money back fast from mynetmoto.com
These guys are selling out fast! I am about to pull the trigger, but the only rear they have released is the 140/80-18. After reading up on all the 150 vs 140 threads, I am wondering if I should wait until the 150/70-18 is released. Anyone want to chime in what they would do?
i have an SE so i'll probably give it a go on the 140 size but if it were me, I'd wait for the 150 for the ADV. more weight and more than likely a bit more durable as you'd have a wider footprint to distribute the wear over, so you should get much better mileage and handling out of the 150 size compared to the 140.
but then again what do I know...
not in English but it does have subtitles. looks good for the tire if you are wanting something durable but still handle some off road decently..
Next availability of 150/70-18 shows June 7th in distributors inventory- retailers to follow that date
Thank you. I dont leave until August for my 2 week road trip north. Ill just wait. This tire seems good for my needs of road/gravel time. We will see just how well it works and how long it lasts.
Id be interested to know how they go- post an update once you get them and you have a chance evaluate dirt & street.
Hmmmm, this looks interesting.
Just ordered one this morning, it didn't show back ordered. Hope it comes soon not much left on the scorps. bete
From what site?
American motorcycle tire co.
13.000 km from a rear and still lots of life on it !!
Looks like a winner.
I think it only had 3000km on it and it was 30% worn. He was saying it should last the 10,000km to get him to Tashkent.
You're right. I assumed new tires were mounted since Km 0 and actually it was at the 10,625 km mark so yes, he's showing the tire wear at 13,124 km, just 2,500 km later...
I put the 140 on my adventure and am perfectly happy with it right now.
I've already been lectured about the cross section and all that, but I only use the center part anyways so I figured it didn't matter.
Yes please, some pics would be appreciated. I'm really undecided between these and the Conti TAs. I know it's apples and oranges, but still. The TAs get exceptional reviews everywhere, great mileage, great on road, acceptable on hard dirt. My problem is I love riding the sandy tracks in FL and not sure the Contis will do well there... These seem like a good compromise.
I'll post some this evening when I get home.
I was riding a tractionator, so I'm completely amazed by how quiet this tire is compared to the noise I was making before.
I haven't had it off the tarmac yet as we've been through a veritable monsoon since I've put it on, but hopefully I'll get the chance here this weekend.
Thanks, all updates will be greatly appreciated. It might just be my next tire...
