    The guy I bought it from was the second owner the first guy put only 244 miles on it and the second put the rest and according to him they were all commuting miles on road. From what I can tell I think he was being honest.
    I think its still the original tires so those will definately need to be replaced with knobbies for the woods.

    Looks cool
    I'll check it out tomorrow night, tell me what we're drinking and I'll pick up 30 or so

    I guess with those not so knobby tires, I can leave my knobbies home then?

    Its up to you about the knobbies, I'll still go in the dirt, concider it my handicap. But I'll leave it up to you, if you have buns we'll stick to dirt roads if you have knobs we'll go in the woods
    You can always change them here if you decide to.

    The usual is fine ?


    see you round 7 still?

    Street buns are on it now and I've ridden plenty of dirt roads with them. We'll see, I may toss the bumpies in the truck and change them over a beer or 10 Are you riding that to MM?

    Usual is fine with me and I should be there around 6:30-7

    Haven't decided what I am taking to MM yet.
    I might take the sprint for the sake of not burning what knobs I do have on the street. I think its roughly 50 miles or so from my house via back roads and such. I'll decide sat.

    What are the best tires for 70% dirt/rock and 30% road?

    Just about any DOT tire will work okay in dirt and rocks. It's the sand & mud where proper tire selection is key. A tire that works well in sand & mud will likely be a poor tire for the street.

    The Pirelli MT21s seem to be okay on the road, if you don't plan to drag the pegs intentionally. They work very well off-road for a DOT tire.

    MT 21s seem to be the choice I keep hearing about. Thanks.

    I was running metzler karoos on the dr650 and I loved them both on and offroad, although a bit buzzy on the road, but what knobby isn't? They were intended for bigger bikes, not sure if they make one for the drz though. I'll have to start looking around myself now.
