Pirelli Scorpion Trail Dual Sport Front Tire
Loving it so far
Now have about 500 miles on the tire with about 60% of that on one long ride over the Sierra Nevada. Stopping traction has been spot on and zero issues while leaning in the twisties. Have a Scorpion Trail on the front and back. Hit some loose rocks on one of the hairpins and recovered without issue. Can't speak to tread wear yet but all signs point to "groovy"

7500 Mile ride of National Parks
I recently wrapped up a 7550 mile ride from Chicago to most of the major National Parks. I wanted a set of tires for my 07 Multistrada 1100 that could handle gravel and dirt roads to some remote campgrounds on these parks. The tires and the bike handled great. By the time I got to badlands I had done over 1000 miles and that was the first test for the tires on gravel/dirt. They handled great! On some stretches of the remote campground road in the Badlands, I was able to hit 70mph. On the twisties the tires had great grip and always felt planted. (please not that I don't scrape pegs) The tires started to show wear by the time I hit Mono Lake area and Bodie California (5000 miles) By that time the tread was 60-70% worn and I felt l was loosing grip on the dirt road to Bodie. By the time I got to Bryce in Utah (6000+ miles) The tires were on their last leg. They barely got me home to Chicago at 7550 miles with all the middle tread gone. So in short, they will do about 7000 miles, but start loosing grip on dirt/gravel at about 5000 miles. I wanted these tires to last me my whole trip and they did. (barely) So overall a good experience. Will probably buy another set for next riding season.

Great tire. It was the OEM on the bike and great to have a new set on the road.

Amazing grib on dry tarmac
Used 2 sets on my transalp xl700, loved it.
The only bad about them is the life of the tyre. I could only get around 4000kilometers.

A good tire for mostly street riding, able to handle fireroads
I run Scorpion Trails on my Buell Ulysses, and regularly take it down fire roads and trails. These tires are great on dry gravel, but do not handle well in mud. They're great on the road, which is why they are the tire I use 95% of the time for this bike. When anticipating riding in mud, I switch out to TKC80's.
