Distanzias, Anakees (both similar price) and Shinko 705s (cheaper) would be other options.
Most of the online vendors have a tire finder by size and style so you can easily sale shop.

Your setup is almost identical to mine....I just need to get some treads that can handle loose terrain a little better. How does it ride on pavement with the TKCs?

How about triples? My requirements are similar to yours, and once i save up, a Tiger 800 will likely be my next bike. The new ones have great suspension according to the reviews.

2012 BMW G650GS Sertao Owners

I use the 15w40 currently. I am doing one more round with it, but plan to switch to T6 next once I have crossed well over 6000 miles.

I used it in other bikes without any issues.

Over on the Sertao thread I believe it was said that the throttle-twist reset only works on the older bikes. 2012 and newer need a dealer reflash of the ECU (the GS911 tool can also do this).
