I bought this for my plated 250X and it's been disappointing. On the road it is smooth and I haven't had an issue with it, but as a dual sport tire it's not the best. I've washed my front end out several times on trails and gravel roads and it's got to the point that I had to change it out because it was simply unsafe. I took several spills because of it. Most of them on single/dual track at relatively low speed, but I had a higher speed slide on a forest service road and that's when I surrendered and replaced the tire. If you are a casual rider or someone that doesn't hit trail too much - probably a fine tire. If you ride trail or ride aggressively - at all - look for a different tire.
