    Tire selection - MT21 vs MT16

    i've had the mt21 and the 606's . for me the 21 would never hook up off road, if you wanted to roost every one behind you its perfect. got about 1300 miles out of it. loved the 606's , nothing bad to say, got about 1700 miles. currently running kenda k270s good tire for the money, think this is the third set, get over 3500 miles. bike has over 22000 miles.

    Accident Avoidence & Dual-Sport Bikes

    living in central michigan where the deer and dogs and stupid drivers run loose i always ride next to the center line. if i am following a car they can see me in the mirror.i try to ride with my headlight shinng in their side mirror so they know i'm there. as far as riding next to the center line , my theory is that i have an equal chance of going left or right to avoid trouble. just my 2 cents.
