    Nice tire

    I replaced a set of D606's with the IRC. After a couple hundred miles I can say this tire works well. It bites well in dirt, shallow sand, and shallow mud. I don't know about deep loose stuff, but I avoid it anyway. It also works well on the road, getting to the dirty stuff, and isn't terribly loud.

    IRC GP-1 Rear

    Put this on my Suzuki DRZ400. Cant complain at all. They look a little narrow as other reviewers have stated. Seem to have the same traction as the stock Trailwing tire that came on the bike, but with much more traction and bite in the dirt. Not sure how the tread will wear, as I've only put about 250 miles on them.

    IRC -GP1 on my '13 Suzuki DR200

    Scrapped stock Trail Wings and had IRC GP1 installed. These tires handle better than expected on pavement. They are fun on curvy back roads. On dirt roads, enduro and trials trails, mud, and steep rocky hills, tires hook up well. I have not been in any condition where I wish I had more grip. I plan to stick with this tire, will buy them again.

    Great "do it all" dual sport tire

    These tires don't do anything badly, and can do much very well. That may sound lukewarm, but it's a very strong endorsement. On my WR250R I can get some serious lean angels on the street/asphalt with no vibration to speak of. Off-road they provide consistent predictable traction in gravel, dirt, and even sand (Pine Barrens in NJ). OK, maybe in mud they're only passable, but they're not scary. I've never experienced a tire that can do so many things so efficiently. The price is good too.

    Good tires....

    Replaced Dunlop 606's with these. 70 road/30 dirt on a Honda XR650L. When you are on the street you will be saying wow it's not a 606 and when you are on the dirt you will be saying wow it's not a 606...as expected. I have rode these on snow, ice, mud, sand, steep rocky terrain, and various types of pavement. Tire works ok on everything except very loose stuff and soft sand especially with lower pressure 20psi. Rubber is soft and I typically get about 3000 miles on these.

    GP-1 Rear Tire

    Great tire have used on KLR 650 AND XR 650l. Mileage is ok about 2000 mi. and a more expensive than a Kenda, but a much better tire.

    GP-1 on BMW F650

    I only have about 400 miles on them so far, but they aren't showing any signs of blowing tread off like the previous two Shinko 244's I had on the rear. They are a little narrower and look less beefy then the 244's but dirt and road grip are equally as good, if not a tad better in the dirt. If they last close to 5k miles I'll be happy.

    great tire

    At 35psi my klr felt like it weighed a 100lb's less and cornering was confident and quick. Once on the dirt at 20psi they really held their own against my friend's d606's and got me out of everything from water crossings, gravel, mud and rocks. Even at 20psi I was cornering at high speeds on mountain roads with ease but the road noise is quite bad for such a non-aggressive tread pattern. Bring head phones for long distance highway travel for sure.

    I've only put 500 miles on them so far, 70% of that being on dirt. They handle great on and off pavement.

    GP-1 5.10 on DRZ-400

    I looked at all the tires out there in the 50/50 and 60/40 category and chose the IRC 5.10 GP1 for my 2006 DRZ-400. The night I installed the tires it was wet and rainy, and against good judgment with fresh tires, I took the bike out for a ride. I was very surprised at how these fresh tires hung onto the wet road and the braking was a HUGE improvement over my previous set of AC-10s. Can't wait to see how they work once they are broken in. Next day on the dry pavement they also performed well. Haven't tried them on the trail yet, but I reckon they will do just fine at a lower tire pressure.

    IRC GP-1 Dual Sport Front Tire

    I really like this tire on my 1980 XL250S. Great balance between on road and off road performance, leaning quite a bit to on road. Only have about 100 miles of dry street riding on it, but all indications are that it will wear fine, and the dry traction is great. No noticeable instability in cornering. Highly recommend this tire. The only dual-sport tire I could find in 23".

    IRC GP1 rear on KLR 650

    This tire feels secure cornering hard on pavement. Tracks well at all speeds including a few 70+ freeway trips. I noticed if tire pressure is on the high side it slid some on tar snake road repairs if found in hard cornering, lowering the pressure solved this. Excellent on dirt roads. Previous GP1 rear lasted about 5500 miles 65/35 dirt roads / paved. Took off a good set of Pirelli Scorpion that felt better on the street but very bad in the dirt . I'm impressed with this for a dual sport tire. Ran it last winter, wet traction was good.

    So far the best tire I've tried.

    I found other Dunlop tires I wanted to try, but they did not make them for my size rear tire. I've been riding on the GP-1's for about 18 years on my dualsport. They handle well on the road allowing me to take corners hard and they run quite. Off-road they do pretty good as long as they are not worn. As far as durability, my front tires last years, but the back needs to be replaced regularly to maintain good off-road traction. I gave them a "5" because no other tire I've tried has lasted any longer, it's just how it is.
