A great alternative to eating up your knobby tires if you have to take a lot of pavement. I can double my mileage on a rear with this tire over a knobby and traction is good for exploring dirt roads.

Great Tire
2009 Suzuki DL650,

I got these tires from RMATV a week before my solo trip to Moab to ride the White Rim Trail. I didn't realize how bad the sand was going to be and I thought I would not make it. These tires were incredible! I was in sand about to my chain (think of Powdered Sugar) and had to make it up a river bank. I was going a little slow and thought for sure I was going to drop but after a pull on the throttle I made it up no problem. 100 miles of rock, pebbles, ruts, steps, sand and a couple nasty climbs then a 250 mile run home, I am nothing but happy with the tire. Not an issue, the tires performed great.

Just my 2 cents, Hope it helps

Excellent tire
Both my brother and I use these on our BMW F650 Dakar. I am on my second set and he is on his third set. We love this tire for the kind of riding we do, which is 75% street, 25% service/dirt roads. They grip great on curvy mountain roads.

Machine this part was bought for: 2003 BMW F650GS Dakar

Great performance, Poor mileage
I loved these tires on my KLR so I thought they would be a good choice for my '04 Suzuki V-Strom1000. I like how these tires handle on my V-Strom but at 1900mi the rear is nearing the wear bars (front looks good). I don't know why it is wearing so fast, I got 8000mi on my KLR with some rubber left on the front when I changed them. These are radial while the KLR tires were bias-ply. The speed rating is higher too. I have no complaint about their handling but they are kind of expensive to be shopping for new tires before 2K miles. They are off my list for this bike.

Great tire for street DS bikes!
I have a Suzuki DR and after burning through several dual sport tires aimed at off road riding, this tire changed the manners of my bike for street riding. I used the Distanzia front and rear tires for a season so far and they show minimal wear. I turned my bike into more of a Supermotard bike instead of a dual purpose. These tires handle great on my light machine, allowing me to corner like I didn't realize my DR could. I'm impressed with these tires and would recommend them to anyone looking to put a street bike tire onto a dirt bike/dual purpose bike.

Excellent tire for street oriented dual sport tour
I have been through several sets of Distanzia's on my R12GS, my typical style is 90% on-road, highway speed, long distance touring, the Avon's are particularly grippy in the twisty's, quiet and last a fair amount of miles.

Some have complained about wet road behavior but I have not had an issue in the rain with these tires.

These tires perform well on hard dirt fire roads but are a handful in loose dirt, mud, sand and gravel on the big GS.

7-8K miles on the rears and about 10K out of the front tires is typical for me, however the fronts will wear fast and unevenly if you let the pressure fall below 40psi, these tires like a little more air pressure on the road than most others.

I would rank their street handling characteristics as on-par with many quality street only tires.

Avon distanzia tire.......
I got this rear tire to replace an identical tire that is still on my '06 XRL ( it came with a new set of Avons on it). They corner very securely,and I'm almost at 2K miles, with very little noticable wear. All other reviews I've found concur.

I expect to run these tires for the life of this bike.
