Very nice tires!
I just installed these tires 120/90/18 rear and the 21" front on my DRZ400. Limited riding so far, but the hook up well on dirt. Very much like a D606. To me the rear is a bit wider spaced than the D606,(however I do not have one to compare). The front very much looks like a D606. So to me they are D606's at half the price. Just installed them so cannot rate tread life yet.

Only did a little riding. Tried the on some trails and grip is way better the the 244's (as expected). Quick ride on the road and the front darts around more then the TR8s, but they are not scrubbed in yet.. Nothing terrible just not as sure footed as the TR8.

I am a happy customer.

Next to a IRC TR8.  I really like the TR8, we will see how the Dsport compares.
Pictured next to a Shinko 244 5.1 X 18 with 1200 miles. Shinko is good but sucks on the soft stuff.

120/90x18 Notes
The Dsport are a great value. The tread depth is very deep. I replaced a Michelin T63 that didn't quite have enough tread depth for our local conditions. The Dsport raised the bike up an inch or so taller with the increased block height. If you're looking for an aggressive dual sport tire this is a contender. This rear tire was not well balanced. It took a lot of weight (without a rim lock). See photo. The front was almost perfectly balanced without weight.

A lot of weight required to balance.

A Little Unstable on Highway on KLX250S
Ordered set of these for a KLX250S. My rear tire order has been delayed several times and is about a month late, so this review pertains to the front tire only. I am disappointed. I like the tread pattern and it looks great on the bike. I thought it would be an awesome replacement for my Michelin T63, but actually it is not really even close. The T63 has smaller, but more open knobs and this works much better on the front in the loose sandy stuff I ride off road. I do not feel confident riding hard in the sandy wash areas with the Tusk tire. On the pavement, the Tusk tire corners and grips just fine, but I think it has a softer side wall, and makes the bike a little sloppy in the steering. Not really any more stable than a full out knobby, but maybe it will last a longer - I do not know. The T63 is out of production, this tire makes me miss it more. I will not put a Tusk D-Sport on the front of this bike next time - but I do not say never.

Good option for the cost.
Bought these in an effort to save some money. Tires look great and have tall knobs that have been an asset in gravel and soft dirt. Rubber compound seems a bit hard. Maybe this will result in wear resistance. Front tire is noticeably more wiggly on pavement than the Karoo 3 and Tractionator i have run previously.

Sketchy on wet road.
Bought 130/80-18 to replace dunlop d606. Daily dualsport use for 6 months now. Great off-road in Oregon mud and rocky terrain but horrible on the street. Tire actually has very poor grip compared to the d606. Seems to be wearing out a lot faster than the d606 as well.

Had to try them for the price. I’ll definitely be purchasing another set.
I’m extremely impressed with these tires especially for the price point. I wouldn’t expect great performance or longevity. Well TUSK proved my expectations wrong. I’ve got over 600mi logged on these tires so far. I’ve ridden street, sand hill climbs, rocky single track, mud, dry, and literally up rock waterfalls. I’d say that they have performed way above my expectations and are probably at 50% life left on them.

Very impressed. Love this tire.
I love these tires on my DRZ400. Huge deep lugs that really dig in. I bought the bigger rear tire too which is tight going on, but fits great when installed on the bike. It’s a heavy duty tire too. I could ride it with a flat no problem especially with a rim lock.
