Nice bikes Terry, especially the red Triumph, that looks very well. The first photo looks like a fine place to ride, and the blue sky and the sun shining.....

 No Dunlop D603 or D605, running D606's on there now

They were ok on gravel roads but not much good in mud, they are a dual sport tyre so not too serious

Thanks Terry

I have a couple of thousand left on my current tyres

some kind of bridgstone, there not bad but starting to chunk on the rear, I'm guessing they are the Original DRZ tyres

Think I'll go back to 606's

I run mine down as low as 5psi, fantastic grip at 5psi, got 2 rim locks on the back

It's never moved after 3000k's on it

..
