    I actually have 244 5.10's on 2 of my current TW's and they are great but if I ever have to remove one for a flat or any other reason a 241 is going back on, not because the 244 is bad because it's not I just prefer the steering with the 241,my 3rd TW is TWilights "old" 2014 with the 241 and it's noticeably easier to steer but maybe Joemamas extended swing arm is part of the equation ???

    Since this was my first bike (1995 when I got it) I have ridden it mostly on streets. My observation of the stock set up was cool 4 wheel drive sound on pavement. I fell on my butt in the mud and the sand made the front tire wash also. The stockers (tw31 and tw32) wear real quick on pavement. After 2 sets of knobbies I switched to tw203 and tw204 for street riding. They are considered dual sport but I suppose these would slide every where off road. They are great on the street.

    I've got a 203 on the front and stock knobby on back. Love the 203 on the street but it gets a bit dodgy on anything other than non-loose rocks and hard pack off road.

    truth be told... with my powerstroke TW226 a front tire is extraneous... i just wheelie everywhere so a 244 is the same as a241 as a stock deathwing.

    3000 miles on the 5.10 244. Sticks good on all surfaces, run it around 14 psi. Checked it once after a ride that felt a little squishy and it only had 4 psi. I had picked up a russian olive thorn. Carcass of this tire still super tough with essentially no pressure. Pretty sure that I could slow ride a flat back to the house. Also liked the extra weight up front. Tdub is my first motorcycle and I am a newb as far as riding skills. I like it when the nose stays down for me

    I just switched to knobbies from the 203 204s and they are much better off road than you might think.
