That's an easy one... the Continental "Twinduro" TKC80 is the gold standard for hardcore dirty types on big bikes. Bloody expensive, though.

The Kenda Big Block looks similar, but costs nearly as much and wears out much more quickly.

Also the Metzeler Karoo. Heidenkau K60 Scout is a step less aggressive.

"Older people who are reasonable, good-tempered, and gracious will bear aging well. Those who are mean-spirited and irritable will be unhappy at every period of their lives.

"Let each of use properly whatever strengths he has and strive to use them well. If he does this, he will never find himself lacking."
