General Overview

Notes: What was my go to tire on my XT225 has proven it's not so long lasting on my DRZ400E with a heavy throttle hand.
The lifespan on the XT225 was in excess of 5000kms of aggresive riding on my sealed road commute, excellent value for money at the $135 I pay.

Now that I am riding a DRZ400E, that lifespan has dropped right back to 2500kms with lots of aggresive sealed and hard pack gravel roads just eating it up.

While I will be sticking with the MT21 front tire, I think it's time I looked for something a little longer lasting.
Heading home from the Greymouth Street Races, via the Maruia Saddle, Matikitaki Valley, Braeburn Track and the Porika Track.
