I just did a trip up to the Simpson desert and put motoz tractionators desert on my ktm450. All up we did 1800km from maree to Mt dare, across the Simpson to Birdsville and then back to maree. Tire is not even half worn down and could easily complete the same trip again. I really liked the way the tire performed both on the open dirt roads and also the sand of the desert. Would highly recommend this tire! Here’s one of the dunes. (Yes we had spotters watching for oncoming traffic)

I'm REALLY NOT A FAN of the tractionator at all.. but yes, lots of tread depth etc. Maybe they're better on the smaller bikes..on the ADV bikes I reckon they suck. I've never felt more disconnected from the road surface. I'd go so far as to say that to me, they felt dangerous. I'd never run the front again..maybe the back..just because of the lifespan (wear).

Quite interested in what you liked about them... Aside from the longevity, maybe I'm missing something. Granted...I do find tyres to be a black art.

We had about 8 bikes on the trip all running the same tires. We felt they had good predictable traction when on the gravel road sections and once hitting the sand hooked up really well. As previously mentioned they also wore really well
