Here is probably the only review that I've seen one them other than Mr Bergman's video which is probably worth a watch if you haven't seen it already.

http://www.enduro360.com/2014/08/19/...-front-review/

There is a vested interest in this one by the way, bit like myself. I don't think there has been an international hard enduro event that hasn't been won on a 216 90/100 in probably forever too.

Interestingly my KX5 that came straight out of the Californian desert had a GT216 desert on it which is the same as the fatty but a four ply version, ridicuously tough tyre. It has two Finke victories in two starts too.

If there is a negative with the fatties is that they will try and stand up in deep ruts with fast guys on a mx track.... apparently. Unfortunately I can't verify this without some means of getting fast. By the way, you can get one can of coke to last for four rums... it just isn't pretty.

Edit. Some people love the fact that if you don't move your forks they will slow the steering down a little. Can't vouch for it though the Why Zee doesn't have that problem, especially when it is sitting in the shed.....
