    jackalsour--I was focused on answering "Where in Canada can I get Motoz?"
    I provided good info.
    No one seemed to be acknowledging my info...
    hence the "What's wrong with you people?" vid
    FYI some of us would pick up the desired tire and ship it it you really wanted...just 'throwing it out there'
    now I'm curious.
    Where ARE you?

    @yatman Fair enough :lol2 I appreciate everyone's input and I'm checking them when I can. I would happily pay to get my hands on a Tractionator Adventure rear tire by mid June

    In return I could test it +8000kms across Canada 50/50 and provide an amateur assessment. I could also source a token of appreciation along the way by request or by chance

    The 8 available options shown from Kenco are dirt tires, I can buy those locally... It's the Motoz Adventure bike tires that are getting hard to source... I have a couple thousand KM on a Motoz Adventure rear tire and am liking it so far... The best thing about them is that they start out with 25% + more tread depth than the competition so should last that much longer in theory..

    I did find MotoZ Tractionator Adventure and GPS on the kenco site here. It didn't mention them out of stock but I haven't called to verify that (roaming)

    Both the Adventure and the Adventure GPS only show 17" sizes in stock...

    I was going to try a Adventure GPS for the Northern trip but ended up picking up a Mitas EO 7...

    I called Kenco today and they don't have any MotoZ 150/70-17. They also confirmed MotoZ is changing distributors in Canada.

    I might just start out on a worn TKC80 on a mission to find a MotoZ adventure en route.

    If you could drop ship a tire to a northern Ontario Canada Post FlexDelivery (PO Box) in mid June I'd be interested. I prefer to steer clear of the GTA on a dual sport

    Ifrom what I can see I don’t think they will be available by then. There is no new stock coming to Canada as of yet. If you really want a motoz that badly you’ll have to try the USA distributor. U

    Any coming to Canada?

    I just installed 2 Oz products on my bike that I ordered direct from the companies - MSC moto RM3 and quadlock

    I don't know why tires are still controlled by local cartels in the days of internetz

    This tire looks badass compared to TKC 80

    Well, technically they don't...or rather they no longer carry them as they are unvailable through their distributors. They just happened to have some of these in the shop.... wouldn't fit the 950.

    Did you happen to see more than one? I'd be impressed if this tire survives all the way to AK
