Vorige trips saam met Losper was ek op 690. Maar hierdie een was op 1290 en ek het dit baaaaie meer geniet. Ek wil ook se dat die pakkie manne rerig goed uitwerk- ek is al sleg e%%r tussen hulle en ek is bly hulle verdra my. Sover.
If i had to explain you would not understand anyway......

How did the Motoz Tractionator’s do on the blue 990 in comparison with the new E07 on the AT?
The EO7+ did a great job and I was pleasantly surprised by the tyre. Mitas has got a winner here,  7 of the 9 bikes were fitted with  them and they delivered as promised on sand, rocks, high speed gravel highway and tar.   
@171steve  can you give your input on the Tractionator Dessert?

Hi Ian the motoz did well at first i didnt like especially it on tar i told losper its like getting headshake from the rear wheel the guys behind could see the rear of the bike swaying but it got better as the tyre settled in.
Grip offroad is very good even in the sand.
Its by far the hardest knob around for the big bikes i have just over 2000kms on mine of that about 300-400kms was tar and it will give me another 1000kms easily.
All in all the richtersveld (that technical bit) was very hard on the tyres even the new e07’s on the hondas took a beating.
 I would go for a 140 next time the 150 is massive looks more like a 170.
Even tough the speed rating is 120 or something we pushed it on long gravel straights at 180/190 with no problem.
I didnt nurse this tyre i rode it hard with lots of powersliding and spinning in the rocks, with normal riding i would easily get 4500-5000kms on this knob.
And i had not one puncher on the motoz

Wow! As vrou kan ek nie help om te wonder hoe op aarde julle niks saamneem nie (selfs die tools lyk min).
Maar pragtige fotos en lyk heerlik (van my rusbank af)!
Respek!!
