Gave it a 5 star b/c I don't know of another tire that's better for dual sport adventuring. I use them on a KLR 650 Long life, wears well, good traction on a wide variety of surfaces. Not great in slick mud/snow.
Rides: 2004 Kawasaki KLR650
Yes, I recommend this product.

I usually buy things because they are tough, or extremely effective at what they do. This one is both. I originally bought it for a 7000 mile tour across the western US. It functioned flawlessly and held up to everything I threw at it. It kept everything dry, the zippers didn't start going haywire, had no problems with it coming loose. It will get pretty hot inside, so don't leave anything melt-able in there; it's best for phones, GPS, camera, ID, wallet, etc.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Bought this bag for what ended up being about a 7000 mile tour across the western US on my KLR 650. I think it would have been hard to find a more suitable system. I bought the white one, so it ended up a little scuffed by the end of the trip, though I expected that. Even covered in dust, I received some comments about them, so they must look OK. The craftmanship of them is top notch, and there is nothing superfluous on them, which I can appreciate.
As long as you don't ask them to do anything they weren't designed to do, you'll be quite satisfied.
Yes, I recommend this product.
