  • Shinko 705 Rear Dual Sport Motorcycle Tire

    Shinko 705 Rear Dual Sport Motorcycle Tire

    Forrest in PA

    shinko 705 rear on klr650

    I have used these tires both rear & fronts with great results, I do mostly road riding with a few dirt or gravel roads , I average between 5000-6000 miles on rear tire & maybe a bit more on the front, depending on the length of my ride when its getting low on tread. When you consider the price of these at R M its hard to spend more money on expensive tires & probably not get any better wear.

    Dunlop Geomax AT81 Tire

    Brian in VA

    Great Tire!

    I ride trails and single track, not motocross. The AT81s gave a very compliant ride and absorbed hits without deflection better than any tire I have used. It also offered great traction in mud and ever snow banks I had to ride through. The only downside it they wear quickly. I recommend them!

Adventure Motorcycle Tires

Looking for tires to take you on your next adventure? It’s no secret that the first thing you should do is analyze your street/dirt ratio. Many riders keep their bikes almost exclusively on the street. Others take their adventure motorcycles into some pretty rough off-road environments. Decide what your needs are. And remember that your needs aren’t necessarily the same as your preferences. You might like to think of yourself as more of an off-road kind of guy, but if you honestly don’t get off the street much, then there’s no sense in straying from a street-oriented tire. Similarly, if you prefer to stick to the street but find yourself in particularly soft terrain the few times that you do go off-road, then you might want to find something a little more dirt friendly than your tendencies might suggest.

Much of the street/dirt ratio is determined by the tire’s tread pattern. Knobby tires are excellent for softer terrain as the lugs are able to dig in and find traction. Street-oriented tires feature finer and fewer grooves to keep as much of the rubber in contact with the asphalt as possible. Because such a wide variation exists with adventure motorcycle needs, you’ll find everything from near-motocross knobbies to tires similar to what you’d use on a street-only bike. Take a good look at the tread pattern and read the product descriptions. If customer reviews are available, make sure to take advantage of them! They often contain priceless gems of wisdom from other adventure motorcyclists.

One thing that’s important for adventure touring tires is longevity. How long will the tires last before you need to replace them? Several adventure touring tires are designed to go for as much as 10,000 miles. These utilize a hard rubber compound. The tradeoff is that they don’t grip as well, so you’ll want to take it easy on the extreme end of things, whether it’s high speed canyon carving or intense off-road challenges. On the other hand, several excellent adventure tires offer superior grip, but they simply won’t give great longevity. You have to decide what is important to you.

And of course, pricing and overall value also come into play. We’ve gone to great lengths to keep prices low and value at its maximum, but different tires are available at various price points, and you’ll have to decide what fits your needs the best.
