'04 DL1000. ~90 mile round trip commute, 3 days a week. The commute consists of 3 miles of gravel road, stop and go from 0 to 60 to 0 and stretches of 75-80 MPH to keep up with traffic. Weekend riding and offloading is not likely to be very frequent but I'll ride with buddies once in a while. I daydream about doing the Trans-Labrador next summer, but that may never happen and even if I'm able to do it, I might need new tires by then anyway.
I've considered spending more on tires but decided to go with Shinko's this time around, just not sure which I'll be happier with. I'd like to hear from folks that have run one set, the other, or preferably both and their thoughts on which tire would be a better choice and why.
