I'm not voting because none of the choices are right. The recent post with way too many pics was way overboard. A couple of items with a few pics is fine. No reason to limit it to 1 item tho.

Too bad, that's a narrow ratio for a dual sport/adv bike. Maybe with a really wide power band it's OK tho.

No way, i run 20-25 on pave and get 3000mi. Higher pressure would heat up less. I think maybe bad tire, or really sharp rocks, maybe too much pressure on sharp rocks.

wheel weight

How much weight can you save with lighter wheels? I see a few folks going with aftermarket wheels, but I'm not sure if they're doing it for bling, strength, or weight.

Any DOT tires for these yet? I need to be street legal to do the rides I want to do, & I don't want pedals on a bike that I'm not going to pedal.
