Great road performance KLR650
4,000 miles on twisty, often wet pavement. Grip was very good, always felt planted and secure. Some gravel and dirt roads with no problems(KLR650). Slippery in the mud, but any road oriented tire will be. Plenty of life left. I estimate another 2,500 to 3,000 miles on the rear. Outstanding.
Wobbly nightmare on the road...
Paired with a matching rear on my KTM 690 after wearing out the excellent stock MT21 tires. My first impressions were on-road and the tire was an absolute mess. Any input to the bars over 40mph caused the bars to start a minor tank-slapper. Off road the tire seemed fine (no better or worse then the stock tires). I took it off after less than 200-miles. I replaced it with a more street-oriented tire and the wobble went completely away.
Great 70/30 enduro tires
This is my second one and I have been very pleased with them. Not going to do much for you in mud or wet grass, but I mainly ride street and stone/dirt road and these tires kick ass. Lots of grip in the turns.

Great in the Dirt
I bought these tires in order to make my Yamaha WR450F street legal. I have ridden multiple times in mud, dirt and sand and the tires work very well. I cannot speak to their on road performance since I am still waiting on the DMV paperwork required for my tag.
Some of the best all around rubber out there.........
As far as dual sport riding goes, where it is not practical to run special app tires, the 244's are the best that I've found for a combination on/off road tire but I would not consider them for the speeds encountered with a heavy loaded large adventure bike. Some have noted problems with tread block separation or cracking but I myself have never had a single instance of even a crack and I'm not gentle to them off road. Generally, the coarser the tread, the lower the speed rating on tires and a "P" rating or top speed of 84 mph is about tops in this tire so I wonder if some aren't promoting failure from excessive speed? It's just a thought. My experience with wear on the several rears I've went through has been at least as good as any other tire I've tried. Actually, I would rate wear at better than most. Wear is so dependent upon so many variables from rider to rider that I wouldn't try to put a mileage figure on them. They run well on the highway at highway speeds and while you can hear them, they are not what I would call noisy but you can hear the knobs smacking the pavement and feel slight vibration from the same. Off road, traction has never been an issue for me but may be for those living in regions where there is a lot of mud. But, if you have a tire that's a mudder, it probably isn't runnable on the street. Mud is one of the special apps I was speaking of earlier. I intend to continue to run them on my three dual sports so long as they remain cost effective. And, when you can re-shoe your bike for under a hundred dollars, I call that cost effective.
