My DRZ came with the 756 and I have 1200 miles on it. Them little wear bars are about gone.
I ride on the street to the bookclifs occasionaly and put most of those miles on the clay tracks up at the bookcliffs.
Now that warmer weather has melted the little bit of snow, I have moved up to the rock country and hit the single track.
I am not that great of a rider and don't have good enough clutch control so at times in the steep technical stuff I have to get off this tall critter and do it the hard way.
Lots of wear on that tire spining in the rocks.
I was thinking about going to a DOT dunlop that has a harder rubber compound???
Thats my comment on the 756.
Stop by the DRZ forum and jump in. We love ranting over there. Especialy about Pipes and noise lately.
See ya Greg

They do slide on asphalt and on super hard dirt. It takes me forever to stop.
They work OK in Pueblo. Stand up to the abuse of Captain Jacks' rocks (Can smell em burn but they don't chunk). They were a little squirelly at Rampart Range. Never been to Taylor Park.
Hope this helps.

I think the 739s work well at an MX track thats not watered, but not as well as the 755/756 off road. The 739 front washes out on me real easy in loose turns.
