I take it you don't ride it in the rain then? :)



Odd you say that.....i came off the other day on wet road.

Front end let go and I wasn't pushing hard....so I am now in a frame of mind to look at other tyres..


lol - pretty sure that everyone who has used them in the wet has come off like that :)

The rear is not so bad but the front is like riding on a knife edge - cheap though and wear quite well. My EXC came with AC10s - they lasted about a week before slapping some 6 Days on it :)

Pirelli MT43 rear, Pirelli Scorpion XCMH front works very well on the drz.

The Scorpion XCMH is much better off road than the MT21 with the same good road manners and better wear rate. The MT43- the trials trial which isn,t a true trials tyre. It either works for your riding style or doesn,t. Needs pressure changes for road/ off-road. Fantastic traction with low pressure and not had a pinch flat yet.
