I am curious as heck
Why are the rangers pestering you on DOT Tires?
My next set of tires will be DOT to keep the rangers happy.

That sucks, I can understand why but that is the most rediculas thing I have heard yet for a OHV's outside of sound checks.
So you can get a ticket becouse your tires are not DOT. I was wondering if they pull any of those Hardly Ableson bike over with the straight pipes and check them for Sound as the do dirt bikes.
I saw 3 bikers pull into Hollister hills the other day, No sound check no nothing right past the ranger station. I was told I have a few more days to get checked.
Thats were I proudly pointed to me little passed sticker,,,,
Well Sorry for the tiraid, thanks YamaMoto

So far I have about 600 miles up in the Sierras (Kennedy Meadows, Isabella/Kernville and higher elevations around the Bean Canyon area) on my DOT legal Dunlop 606 and 905F tires. Overall, I like this setup as much as the 695AT/756 combination I used the last couple of years. I have found the 606 rear hooks up a little better than the 695AT on the hard pack, and almost as well as well in the deep, loose stuff. It seems to be a little easier to break loose on slick dirt roads than the 695. However, it was always predictable and well behaved. Sidewall stiffness between the two seems to be about the same. The 905F worked really well on dirt roads and the hard packed stuff and not as well as the 756 in the sand and mud. Like what has been mentioned above, the wear resistance on both tires has been excellent. Maybe the best I've ever seen. It is also nice to know in the back of your mind that there is one less thing you will have deal with if the cops ever question the legitimacy of your dual sported bike.
