    I’ve thought about riding on the sidewalk/stairs before, but am too responsible (boring) to do it.

    Please give me your thought on the following three tires. Although I own a WR250R…they are going on a Honda CRF230L initially for testing.
    Pirelli MT21 (I saw you used the front for about 5,300 miles) what about the rear and is the front your “go to” tire?
    Bridgestone Trail Wing 301/302 Saw you used the TW…just wasn’t your favorite?
    Michelin T63 Any experience?

    Thanks and thaniks for all the info on the WR250R….also following your ’17 KTM 250 mods. Probably going to be my next bike.

      Hey Tom! So here’s my two cents on these tires…. the Trailwings that came on my WRR, I wasn’t a fan of.. to me they were kinda slick everywhere.. on dirt and street. Since I ride my WRR mostly off-road, I would say realistically about 70/30 dirt to street. At times 60/40 depending on the time of year.. but here in Missouri we have lots of rocks and mud.. The best combo has been the D606 on rear and MT21 on front. The MT21 has lasted much longer than the odd-wearing front D606. I’ve been able to get one front MT21 to two rear D606s.

      On my BMW F800GSA I’m running a T63 upfront, and so far it has wore quite well, it’s wearing a little odd like the D606 front but for a true knobby tire on a big adventure bike, it’s to be expected.

      I wouldn’t have any problem running the T63 on the WRR or CRF250L.. it depends on your riding style/conditions. IF you tend to run more street than dirt, the T63 front/rear would be a great combo. Other guys have had good results with them off-road as well. I just haven’t ran them on the WRR

      Knobs are gonna wear down on street and I just haven’t had a tire last as long as the D606 rear, so I’m sticking with it for now on my WRR as it suits my riding style for sure. The Trailwings would be my last pick of the tires you mentioned.. If cheap is your motivation then look to the Kendas they are half the price and have had pretty good results.

      Ride safe!
