Battlax Adventure A41 tire
I'm in the planning stages of a trip out west this summer, and I'm in the market for a tire. I'll be riding two up, and sadly parts of the trip are going to be on the interstate. Most of the trip will be on pavement, but there are a couple spots (Phantom Canyon Rd, Moki Dugway, Valley of the Gods Road) where I'll be seeing a little bit of dirt/gravel. I've considered both the Heidenau K60 and the Mitas E07, but I really don't need a 50/50 tire when 90 percent of the ride is going to be on pavement. I've seen that Bridgestone has released a new tire, the A41 Adventure, that looks like it might be a candidate for the trip (it'll be 4000-5000 miles, depending on which way I ride home, and only about the first 2000 will be two up). Trouble is, I haven't really found any reviews of the performance of this tire other that the publicity information released by Bridgestone, so I wanted to see if anyone here had any experience with it yet.
