Good beast tire.
I put these on an f800gs before a trip to the dragon and they held up great. 2300 miles and barely any wear. It stuck like a slick in the turns. Really impressed. Some people have complained of splitting tread. Haven't experienced that. Not bad in the loose stuff, but lacks in the mud. A great compromise 1.5 sets for the price 1 conti rear. Awesome. I would expect to get 8k or better on the rear. 4k now and about half gone with a twitchy wrist.

PROS: DIRT CHEAP, Comes in 15070-17, Good hard pack grip

CONS: 90-21 really tight fit

Great all around tire at a great price
Just purchased my 6th 705 from cycle gear, had it sent to the store and arrived in one day for pick up. The store called when it arrived. Good Job Cycle gear. This is a great all around tire. I use it on a 06 V-Strom 1000 that I ride mostly on pavement but do some dirt road riding. I find the tread works well on pavement, no noise, and good grip. I find it has good grip on dirt. I don't do too much gnarly stuff with the big V-Strom but what I do the tire performs well. I get about 8000 from a rear tire and an astonishing 26,200 from the front after getting just 9,700 from the original Bridgestone trail wing. I would recommend the Shinko 705 for anyone who rides a lot of pavement but wants to explore that dirt road when they fin it.

1200gs
They stick to the road surprisingly well when hot or cool. They will allow me to confidently rub my toes on the ground on my gs in curves. 80/20 tire is a good way to put it. I've riden these on 850 mile days cruising 80+ and they have done really well. I have also crossed florida on the trans Florida gs rally mostly sand fire roads and packed shell and they impressed me. They are not mud tires but handle a bit of mud ok enough to not worry but dont aim into it.

initial impressions
Easy to change with 8 inch tire irons by hand. wet traction seems good, only a slight hum noticeable at higher speeds, tolerable . Soft compound offers good grip we'll see how the tread life is, I'm expecting the front sidewall to loose its strength before the tread wears out and to get noisier - but really who f*****g cares, it was a hundred bucks...........

Excellent dual-sport value
Used on everything from beginner/intermediate trails at Hollister to long freeway runs. Surprisingly good grip on gravel and unpaved surfaces, but not great in mud or sand.

Great compromise tire for bikes like the DR650.

PROS: Versatility, value

CONS: Not terribly aggressive

Good tire at a good price!
This is my first dual sport tire purchase and I have very little experience with ds tires, but this seems to be a good tire at a good price. I will say however, that I couldn't get it to seat perfectly all the way around the rim as I do my street bike tires even though I tried 4-5 times using all kinds of ideas. I got the reference line pretty close all the way around, but not perfect. I don't know if this is normal for a ds tire or not, but after balancing I'm happy so far with it overall and I would buy this again on price alone.

PROS: price

CONS: Ref line isn't perfect
