dunno about MX tracks but I got my US forestry sticker already for some SH trails!!

Ill be ready for some trails whenever after! If people are down for a 3palms weekend let me know BEFORE i mount up my street tires lol.

That is a high price to pay just to ride with you. Do I have to swallow?

How much were they and where did you get them? I've used Kendas that were very similar to those two Shinkos for the last few years on my KLR and I've always wondered how the Shinko's compared.

Motorcycle-superstore seemed to have the best prices, the 705's were roughly 110 for a 120/90/17 AND a 140/80/17. The 244's were about 90 for both, sticking a 4.6 on the front and a 5.10 on the rear. Sucks i have to rock a balloon tire up front :( wont have the cornering ability a 21/18 set up would, but im thinking ill be ok in the mud and sand and soft stuff. still debating on which set to put on first :/ if no one wants to do a 3palms or SH ride on an upcoming weekend ill most likely save the knobbies for spring.
