I went on my first off-roading adventure and the factory tires will definitely not cut it. It was a litte muddy and those tires had no grip in anything with mud. Has anyone changed out the tires for something more geared for off-roading?

The Rally STRs are horrible in the wet and anything more than just a dirt road. Deep gravel, sand, or mud, forget about it.

The motoZ tractionators are better. The TKC80s look promising but I've never ridden one.

Problem is...it's a 500pound dirt bike with lots of power. If you went to a full on dirt tire the bike would be great off road, but suck on road.

I have a set of Shinko 804/805 on my 77 R60. They work great on the street...and great on dirt roads...but haven't really tried anything more than that.

That's a set of MotoZ's tearing up the tail of the dragon. The Cagiva Gran Canyon is so much fun to ride in the twisties.

I will say they did get a little greasy after about 30 minutes of VERY hard twisty riding. But remained predictable when they pushed/over steered.
