    What bike are you putting a 140/80 on anyways?

    I had those on my F800gsa and hated them .... squirrelly as F on the highway and nothing special offroad ...

    My 2 cents and I am by no means an expert

    Best of luck

    Which ones? The Tractionator Adventure or Adventure GPS?

    I find any front tire with chevrons like the Tractionator GPS and Mitas e07 are squirrelly compared to a more street biased 80/20 tire. It's really obvious when you hit a grated bridge or crack. But the Mitas e07 was always known for its rear tire not front, and I like the MotoZ Adventure rear much better

    The MotoZ rear tires are now my #1. GPS for long distance street with some off road and Adventure for long distance off road. My previous go to combo was TKC 80 front w e07 rear. I'm going back to TKC 80 front but not the e07 unless I can't source a MotoZ

    My Tractionator Adventure front wore really poorly but it still did 10,000 kms between AK and CO on a heavily loaded F800GS

    The adventures ...the front tire was the problem....the rear was better ....the front was scary on the highway .... Both wore poorly ...cracking and chunking off

    Running karoo 3s now for light offroad use around town and love them .....installing a set of Mitas E09 for the Fundy adventure rally as I think I will need a more offroad orientated tire ..... hopefully they work out better than the motoz

    The karoo 3 is just great though ....I really like them like a street tire that hooks up offroad

    The adventures compare more to Heidenau and Mitas e07 endurance adventure tires imo. Riding around town you might as well use something else

    There is always compromise with tires. I rode from NB to Alaska on the MotoZ adventures 50/50 trail/street. I don't think you'd do so on e09s. It's not easy to source and time tire swaps on such trips. Of course you have to adjust for grip and handling at speed etc..

    My second set of MotoZ did chunk and crack early but also lasted for 10,000kms before I swapped them well before the rear was done.

    Anyone with any new info on Canadian supplier?

    I'm interested in the Rallz, front and rear for a 690, but can't find them up here. (90/90/21, and 140/80/18)
    Cross border shopping seems to have become a thing of the past, especially with the piss poor dollar

    I second that. I have been watching the usual online supplier for the same tires/size and have had no luck.

    Which one specifically? I had the 150/70-17 Adventure on and off along the Alcan and old Denali highway no issues.

    I break the bead with the weight of the bike on the kickstand and getting a tire on is all technique imo
