My Super TT is coming up on 5000, & the rear Scorpion Sync is on the wear bars in the middle, front is still good.

I live out in the country, not quite dirt tracks but lots of mud off the local farmers tractors, so I like the (sorta) off road capability, but want to keep the grip on the good roads.

Any thoughts on alternatives? or is the sync the best option?

The Sync, IMHO, is probably the best option. Starting to see some KTM's running them. Have a set going on my XT to replace the Stradas. Not a lot in the way of choices for street/off road.

Agreed.

I did like my sync at the end, but they are one of the few tires that have both street/dirt capability.

I have since moved on the Mich Pilot road 2's, I am much happier.

Didn't want to change the pair so I've ordered a Sync at my local Dafy Moto.

Very agreeable surprise it's about the same price as the cheapest I found on the net, & they only want 14.20 to fit it (that's less than 20 bucks), & that's on bike fitting!

Tyre should be in today or Tuesday.

Make sure they don't over torque your axle nuts! If I have a shop do the change I make a copy of my Service Manual and give them the copy.
