    My dealer got my 705s in today, I'll pick them up tomorrow. $125 OTD and they look like a great tire. Time will tell.

    Awesome. Did your dealer give you an additional amount off of their "list" price or is that what anyone would pay walking in and getting them! That is a good price for a dealer.

    Can someone confirm for sure that the tires are tubeless in the 17/150s and 19 inchers.

    They are listed as TL on MSS sites which means "Tube Less".

    Old and slow but I got them spooned on last night.

    Sidewall is stiffer than the Trailwing but not as stiff as the Trak Masters.

    I'll ride them as soon as these thunderstorms pass thru.

    I like me the looks of those tires. If I can find 'em in canada, I'll be interested.
    They don't make detours up here, it seems.

    Looks like a great tire, can't wait on some reports on how it rides in the loose stuff. I just got an '09 and have ridden a couple of hundred miles of dirt so far. The stock tires are all right in the packed dirt, but don't like loose gravel or mud much.

    I'm looking for a more aggressive tire, but not a full knobby and these look promising.

    I'll be talking to Les from Dual Sport Plus next weekend at the East Ontario Rally and I'll see if he's a dealer or if you knows one.

    I like 'em; a lot. If you've ridden Tourances these will be as good if not better. Good grip on tarmac; loose (OK, slick as snot) in wet grass; decent bite in dry grass and hard packed dirt/gravel. Controllable slides on the dry dirt. Mine feels a bit heavier in the front but that may just be bike setup. 200+milles and I've not worn the nubbies off them yet.

    Hello,

    I just got my Shinkos from motorcycle superstore. I'm planning on mounting them up on my DL650.

    I was inspecting the tire and noticed that it says max pressure is 33 front and rear. The DL650 specifies 33 front and 36 rear for single and 41 for dual. Am I limited to running the rear at 33 psi for single and dual riding?
