Going to go with some of these next year. Been happy with the 705's in the past from a wear and on road performace aspect, but want a bit more bite in the dirt. Going to ride the TET down to West ByGawd in the spring and I think the 50/50 nature of the new Shinko Big Blocks will be just the ticket.
I ran some Kenda Big Blocks on my Aprilia Pegaso previously (now sold) and while their off road performance was all I could have asked for on a dual sport, they wore out way too quick, and that was just a li'l 650 thumper, not a man sized DL1000. Can't beat the Shinko prices with a big stick.
