I actually went back to 705s when I moved back to Texas because I wanted the extra mileage and most of our "off pavement" stuff here is county roads. There's enough unpaved county roads out east here that I'm going back to 804/805 on my next change which is pretty much here.

I got a minor shimmy at 75 mph on bad chipseal yesterday, but otherwise the new tires seemed as good or better than stock for 200 miles.

Especially, off pavement.

The Shinko 804 / TKC 80 rear combo did great in the dirt/sand/granite/clay roads in the Texas Hill Country this weekend.

They saved my bacon. If I had been on my stock tires, I would have been down several of times, especially in the sand, which is evil by the way.
