    can you use a standard inner tube on the rear or do you need to use an off set one as the valve is off set ?

    Surely you can use abs with single disc - I don't but that's totally different story: https://advrider.com/f/threads/790-adv-r-xc.1420846/

    You need to be really paying attention to remove disc and cylinder from same side to maintain the slow down functionality :jack

    Looking for opinions (in short supply), on a good tire choice for riding to the Yucatan and back, probably about 98% paved.

    If you want to be scraping footpegs it is either conti CTA3 or Pirelli scorpion trail 2. A decent 80/20 tire with lots of grip is also the Pirelli scorpion rally str.

    Ok, I'm curious. I've been running the MotoZ Desert H/T's on OEM wheels and love 'em. But I continually see the Rallz being mounted here. What drives you guys towards the Rallz versus the Desert H/T's?

    Edumacate me :-)

    For me its pretty straightforward - I live in the Northeast in a particularly cloudy area, so its almost always wet offroad in the woods, even throughout most of the summer. Here's what the MotoZ website says about the Desert H/Ts

    95% Dry – 5% Wet; 90% Hard – 10% Soft

    And Here's what the MotoZ website says about the RallZ
    • Based on the popular Tractionator Adventure but with more aggressive off-road traction in all weather extremes.
    • Hybrid compound with Silica for optimum grip in mud and snow.

    I have to ride quite a bit on tarmac to get to off road but like to venture into it when off so needed a more off road version of a 50/50 tire

    I went with Rallz because I didn't want a tire quite as aggressive as the Desert H/T. DIdn't know about the wet weather bit til now, that's a nice bonus and would have fortified my choice :)

    For me, the tough choice was between the Tractionator Adventure and Rallz rear. Went with the Rallz for a bit better grip off road.

    I have allways been riding on aggressive tyres like the Deserts. I got a feeling that they was on the harder side though, also a gut feeling that the Rallz are softer and looks good enough to get into the woods with. Let's see how they fix it, or I... if I'm not happy it will be Deserts next round. Nothing could be worse than tha Karoo's.

    I had the Adventures on my 1290 and have done ~4500 miles on them with some life left. I decided to try the Rallz on my 790 it's more offroad biased (for my more offroad biased bike) with a little bit less lifespan. I had in mind that the Rallz was similar (aside from tread design) to the Adventure. I didn't consider the Desert H/Ts because they seemed specifically designed to do something that didn't match what I was going to be doing on my bike.
