Comments about Continental Conti Trail Attack 2 Dual-Sport Tire:
100% of my riding is in the city, but I do have plenty of unimproved roads with potholes and the occasional sand-drift that I have to negotiate.I have run a set of Continental Trail Attack 2's on my Ducati S2R 1000 for the past 7,000 miles and have loved every mile of it. They mainly live on the street, but handle freeways well and have taken the terror out of hitting the occasional sand-patch. I haven't done any actual "off-roading" with them, but they do afford much better control when you unexpectedly hit non-asphalt riding-surfaces.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good Grip but Uneven Wear
I ride a KLR650, mostly in the curves with Sport Bike friends. I always find some hardpack dirt too. I have used one front and two rears. The front and first rear was the original Trail Attack. The second was the Trail Attack 2.The Trail Attack tires are very confident to ride, especially when new and give good grip wet or dry. In cornering, they give strong grip with excellent feedback. I have been able to use all of the front tread and most of the rear tread with confidence. I have no trouble keeping up with the sportbikes in the corners.On hardpack dirt or gravel, the tire has more grip than you would expect for the tread design. It is no off-road knobby, but I can go anywhere that I want to, as long as it isn't sand or mud.The tires wear fairly well. I have about 6000 miles on each rear and 12000 on the front of fairly aggressive riding, with several thousand miles of useful tread left. Unfortunately, both rear tires started showing uneven wear around 3000 to 4000 miles. By 6000, there is some vibration and slightly less confidence when leaned over in a corner. What happens is that the 'V' shaped tread groove in the shoulder allows the tread inside to flex and not wear. The bigger areas on either side wear during cornering. The result is a kind of cupping wear that limits the tire life. In the end, this uneven wear has led me to try a different tire, even though I like the performance of this tire in all other ways.Mounting this tire is difficult, especially the rear tire. The carcass is very stiff and the bead area is thick. This makes it hard to get on an off the KLR rear rim.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

These came stock on my '13 R1200GS Waterboxer. They seem to be a great tire so far. My prior favorite tire was the Anakee 2, but these offer similar performance. I'm at about 1,900 miles and the rear is starting to get a little bit of a flat section in the middle. Apparently I need to find some curvier roads!At times off road, I wish it had some wider snipes in it, but it goes fine on graded gravel and dirt roads.
