    In Internet slang, a troll (example: ADVRider's 'huckleberry') is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response<sup id="cite_ref-PCMAG_def_1-0" class="reference">[2]</sup> or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.<sup id="cite_ref-IUKB_def_2-0" class="reference">[3]</sup>

    You obviously did not read the definition of internet troll. Just because you 'refer' to a post when you write your inflammatory, off-topic garble does not mean you are not trolling. Figure it out.

    ...And now you've stooped to calling names... wow.... very mature.

    If you think I am trolling in any way shape or form you obviously don't understand what trolling is in the first place. Can you scroll up and read the definition or do I need to repost it again?

    Just come to terms with the fact that you were trolling, let it go, and let the thread stay on topic of the Pirelli Scorpion Rally. It'll be better for you and ADV.

    Explain to me how your post was 'referring' to anything pertinent to this thread.

    Your post was 'inflammatory, extraneous, and off-topic' = troll.

    Now go back under your bridge.

    Can't wait to some of you guys get these mounted up and put some miles on them. I think they are at the top of my list of knobbies to go to once I wear these stockers out.

    The front has been working nicely for me. Not much rougher than a TKC, but less traction on the paved surfaces. Seems ok in the wet, but I ride like a granny when I've got a wet road and a front knobbie. Really has good bite on loose surfaces. Hard packed dirt, probably about the same as a TKC. Haven't sunk it in the mud yet.

    Haven't run a D606 on this bike yet, but from previous experience, I'd say it's pretty similar, but without that tendency the 606 has to wander sometimes.

    Dave at Motohelp has a 150 or two in stock last time I was there. That is usually only a few days give or take.

    Looking forward to seeing what you think of them ChiTown and what kind of mileage folks are getting out of them. For giggles - what kind of mileage are you getting on that 908RR rear?

    Just spooned on a scorp rally front on mine. Previously ran the MT-21 up front. Will probably be going for a fast gravel run tonite. Will let you guys know. For some reason, or maybe my imagination, it looks like it's a bit wider then the MT-21.

    I've got around 5 thou kms on the front now. I did the Washington discovery trail and then decided I should go to northern Cali, mostly via twisty pavement. The tire is great in the dirt/mud and ok in the snow. I assumed it would be spent after returning home but to my amazement it has about half the tread left, and none of that crazy scalloping that is typical with most front knobbies. For comparison, my buddy left with a fairly good MT21 and it's now worn out. For the $50 bucks or so I paid for the tire, it's going to be hard to beat it.
    I think you'll appreciate it for the type of riding you do Chi.
    IMO it's a good match for the E09 I like out back.
