Best choice for off-road on a big bike I have found so far.

I run this tire on the rear of my 1190 Adventure. E09 up front. The stock tires were great (Conti Trail Attack II's) on the road but my wanderings involve a lot more off-road so I like the knobs. Tried the Karoo 3's. Steering up front was awful (heavy) and the tread pattern of the rear causes the bike to be nearly unridable above 90 mph. Tried the TKC-80's but they wear super quick and are too soft when you do get to throw down on some good twisty pavement. Enter Mitas tires. These tires do everything well enough from pavement to rocky fire roads, mud, and even sand. I run at about 18-20F/22-25R psi off-road and have never incurred any rim or tire damage.
Wear is good too. Picked up a nail at about the 1000 mile point. Plugged it and have been riding it since. I am at just under 4k miles on the set and the rear is squared off. Plug is still holding. Time for another rear. Front lugs were not substantial to begin with (E09 not E10) so I will probably keep it through one more rear.
Cost seems to have gone up a big amount. Must be getting popular.

I've had these gloves for a couple of weeks now and put about 800 miles on them so far. The weather has been mostly cool with temps in the range of 40-60 F and a little bit of rain. With heated grips these gloves kept my hands warm and I would turn the grips on any time it got down into the 40's. The gloves have softened some but were quite stiff initially. The armor over the knuckles is stiff and is a bit awkward but I am getting used to them. These gloves feel like they will protect your hands well in a crash. Probably will be too warm once the warmer season sets in.
They were pricey so bang for the buck is hard to give top marks to. These are stylish and have good features like the wiper blade on the left index finger and the puck under the fatty portion of your palm.
Yes, I recommend this product.
