2012 Super Tenere 1200. Woody's Wheels conversion 21"x17". I have had Pirelli MT90 AT Tires as well as a rear Heidenau K60 on this bike. I wanted to try the 705's as I used 009 Raven Shinko tires on my Triumph Tiger 1050 and the 705's on my 98 Tiger 900 in the past. Observation: the Pirelli tires are almost close cousin to the 705's but cost much more and may have a deeper tread. Conclusion: I prefer the Shinko's they hold to dirt much better last just under the same miles as the MT90. K60? Nice long life but to my they start feeling snotty wet or dry after 3k miles, at 5k I took them off. I prefer grip over long life any day, I blame the center solid strip on the K60's it is like a street tire with hard rubber. I get around 5.5k out of the 705 tire. The front tire should be called Shinko Howlers lots of noise but I use ear plugs after about 500 miles the do calm down a little. Dang good tire can hold a load as well.Read All Reviews

I ride a lot of rough ground with ample roots, rocks, and stumps. I've put about 20 hours on it so far in some rough conditions and it's holding up fine. For a while there I was going through tubes about every other ride. I had no trouble whatsoever getting this tough duty tube into place and no trouble since. I'd buy it again.Read All Reviews
