Hi Manuel,

Check out the tire reviews from FortNine- they are in Canada, and their videos are fantastic. Here is one review of theirs: Best Adventure and Dual Sport Motorcycle Tires of 2017-

If you are on their YouTube channel, just go to the search bar and type "tires", and you will see all their tire videos. They review everything- gear, bikes, tires... and for the videos they shoot outside, the production quality is out of this world. Hope that helps!

I've run 2 pairs of Conti Trail Attack 2 and 3 pairs of Bridgestone Battlewings. I find grip and mileage to be the same, the only difference is the Conti's have a slower turn in, so the bike doesn't fall into corners as easily, but you soon get used to it, not a deal breaker. I use the BW more because they're cheaper. I get about 12K - 13K miles out of each, YRMV.

1987 Harley Low Rider Sport (current - with 205K miles)
2009 Aprilia Mana 850, 2006 SV650, 1984 Yamaha Virago 1000 (all sold)

Inmates have reported that Continental tires cause wobbles.
