I'm going to give a Dunlop Geomax AT 81 rear a try. They were on sale last time I was in Ride On Moto and they talked me into trying one.

Amazing how those 40+ year old steam engines can manage to find traction running a silly gay trials tire.

It probably was the influence of the tight spandex :killingme:

Traction was better than with my used up Maxxis, but the stock KTM Freeride Maxxis is an excellent tire. I wanted something with knobs to help get me out of corners and help with rear braking. The 505s are hard to spin in dry to slightly wet conditions. In the slimy mud I was always moving forward, usually straight. I did do a lap before the loop got tore up and traction was good. So far I like the 505s.
I think I had 8 psi in both tires. Most of the trials guys seemed to be running WF pressures 0-flat.

I threw on a 500 mile used mountain hybrid on my bike 2000 miles ago and it has 3 mm tread left in center. It wears rounded. Unlike my tkc80 which was worn flat at 1900 miles...not that the tkc 80 is a dirt bike tire.

Just wanted to share a surprise that the motoz mountain hybrid could sustain so much 60%asphalt mileage and lots of 80 mph. It's not a great mud tire but holds it's own off road especially for a fantastic dual sport tire
