    Looks similar as a Shinko 244. The Golden Tyre looks a little more open. Those last for almost that long and are under $50.

    @MotoMigrant loves golden tyres

    I have ran the Shinko and the IRC. I like them both and I usually get good deals on both at chapparel. The shinko’s I have aired down and did really good on rocks. Descent mud tire too. That golden tire looks nice too. A little out of my price range for my cheap bikes though.

    Trackmaster I can see tearing up. I chewed one of those up quickly on my 250. I can see the 690 destroying one

    Yea the first day Gary found out you don't follow that thing. By the second day it wouldn't get outta its own tracks. Tis the only downfall of having horsepower.
