Like it so far. Usually run the MT21 but figured I'd try these this time. Much softer and better feel on the pavement. Mud and sand are good as well. Don't expect the same life but I'd rather the traction anyway!

I bought this tire in hopes to have more confidence on dirt and trails, it exceeds My expectations in all aspect's, it grips on all terrain sand, dirt, mud, asphalt, when in doubt pin the throttle and this tire picks a line and stables the bike digs and goes. This tire grips on the aspault when your leaning to the pegs I only noticed a little less breaking force and it wears extreamly fast on the road, I ride extremely hard my bike is a dr650se and I am a 300+ pound rider. I'm about 500 miles in on this new tire And probably about half tread to go. I'm pleased with my purchase.
Great tire for the price. I ride 70% dirt and it loves to rocket the real-estate, sad for the riders behind Rowdy and I.
These tire deliver excellent performance both on the street and in the dirt. They hook up in the dirt like true knobs should, allow me to pass sport bikes in corners (seriously), and are quiet for highway droning.
Their one problem is that the knobs in the rear are just too short and wear out in no time. The front holds up fine, but it would be great if Michelin could add a half inch or so to the knobs. At least they are less expensive than some other similar tires (606), so I keep buying them.
I am on my 3rd set of this tire combo on my 12' wr 250r. I ride 70/30 street/off-road 3,000 miles per year. This tire is great for the price and when brand new I have ridden them on a pro motocross track and they can hold their own. When this tire hits the street I'd keep it on the street/trails. It wears into the road quickly and will not hold up to track conditions anymore. Currently I put these tires through the long run test. I have 2,700 miles on the set I have on my bike and they are shot. This tire will hold up nicely for up to 1500 miles of 70/30 hard riding. On the street they preform great considering the more off-road style tread pattern. I can lean it over in the turns and corner nicely without the fear of slipping. I would recommend to any dual sport rider with a similar riding style.
I put this on my 690 Enduro - stock is a 140/18 and the largest size available was the 130. Mounted it up and it fits and performs fine. Put about 200 miles of pavement (40-75mph) and an equal amount of dirt - wear is hardly noticeable and they ride fairly stiff for the PSI. Should prove to be good tires for the price.
I just picked up this tire. Haven't had a chance to install it yet but I'm looking forward to seeing how well it performs. The tread design looks nice and aggressive for my KLR.
Very good in the dirt, as expected. Surprisingly good in the twistys, with much better side grip than I expected. Does have noticeable vibes at freeway speeds, no surprise there. Now we'll see how long it lasts...
