    Absolutely not. The pursuit of a 990 is a worthly life goal. Of course, after you have it, then you have to make new goals...:deal

    The T63 is made for lighter bikes, try the Mitas E09 Dakar or the Golden Tyre GT205 in H speed rating. They have similar profile like the T63, but are stiffer. Or try the Pirelli Scorpion Rally front, a friend of mine had it mounted for our iceland trip and liked it alot.
    My standard 50/50 tire now is the GT205 GT200 Kombo, on aspalt you can round the edge of the outside knobs and drift very easy:rofl, in the dirt its good as long you don't stop :) on sharp gravel I shot one rear :(.

    Put a 17/19 wheel combo on a couple of weeks back. Transforms the bike around the city and makes even commuting a blast.
