Hot damn does this grip. Thought I was riding someone else's bike. No more Deathwing for me. I was originally putting on the K60 Scout but decided since I never ride on the pavement, why bother?

The K60 scout would have been a mistake - the K60 would have been a better choice

Interesting choice of rubber though, let us know how how you get on with it - anything is better than the death wing .......

Added to reddave's ongoing list on gnarly knobbies for the front! What size is that? Thanks, brother!

That looks very aggressive.
DOT approved, not that it matters much, just curious?
No but again I don't ride on the pavement at all and if I did it would be to cut across the highway. Under the trees here in Georgia we have like 5 inches of really soft topsoil constantly decaying. The Devils Favorite Bridgestone kept dropping me on my ass with the slightest cupping to the ground.

I think we've determined the death wing is one of the worst choice in tires, however this boils down to personal opinion. I do challenge those that think the death wing is an adequate tire to find TW with a new different tyre :) and take it for a ride.

Choosing something other than the wing starts a new conversation about usage and personal experience. I will say I'm extremely happy with the Shinko 241 as a dual purpose tire. As stated, intended purpose.....those knobby look fantastic for off road use.
