Opinions on Scorpion Trail 2 tires?
Anybody run the Pirelli Scorpion Trail 2 tires? On paper (or computer screen) these look like a good tire.
How do they turn in, how stable are they, and how do they feel compared to the oem Dunlops?
Currently I am torn between the Trail 2 or the Michelin Pilot Road 4 for my '15 650LT. I ride 90% street, which is half highway and half around town, with some fun twisties once in a while. The other 10% is dirt/forest roads.
Next summer I plan on doing many fun trips which will be a combination of everything. Highway riding a few hundred miles with either a really fun paved mountain section and/or a day of dirt and gravel roads. The dirt will include some mountain dirt roads, but not full on adventure enduro Dakar crazy stuff. I'll still commute to work, etc.
On balance I don't want to have street and highway performance lower than the oem Dunlops, but do need to gain significantly in dirt traction and handling.
