    Yeah....it doesn't look aggressive but it really grabs. Like it's covered in suction cups. That and it tracks really well over anything...rocks, logs, roots...anything.

    Off-road 241 looks great!

    How does it work on the road? Can you scrape the pegs in 35 - 45 mph sweepers or does it get squirrely ?

    I just got one of these yesterday https://www.heidenautires.com/product/k-60/ 120/90-18 to replace my well worn Shinko 700 130/80-18 (7K miles)

    I do a lot of paved to gravel and fireroad stuff. Big block tire has worked well for me. I'll have the K60 mounted up next week...

    It feels great on the road. Haven’t had the chance to take it through some local twisties, but I will soon enough!

    That tire looks extremely capable! great pattern to it.

    Interesting how a simple tire change can make us a more confident rider. A good set of "feel goods" as NASCAR racer/broadcaster say's. I remember when the 244 was the cats meow when it came to comparing it to the stock tire. Just as you mentioned, now I feel like the 244 is just as bad as the stock. I'll tell 'ya, I've never felt any of the tires do well in the mud, not even the 244 but I'd take the 244 and 241 any day over the stock front tire in the sand.

    TW seems to be running good and I know you mentioned a video or two ago the engine cutting out going up hill was still present. Watching and listening I can't tell it, so how is it doing? Anyway, thanks for sharing another great video.

    I have the same tire on the front of my TW200 – can’t fault it

    Also works as a run flat up to 50mph on the road …..

    Hope not to have to use it as a run flat, but who knows LOL.

    The Shinko 700 it replaces is a stout tire also. It's tubeless so very tough. Very heavy.
