Thanks folks for the feedback

I figured there shouldn't be any issues with the 2009 650GS, but you never know. I had a few bugs with my 2010 1200GS with the HP2, but they were minor and fixed right away.

Thanks

AC10 looks a lot like my 6 day enduro

And they were bouncy and squirrelly on the street. Aggressive wide spaced tread does that. I've still not found a front tire I really like. That rear does look good. Let us know

You really should take someone with you and not ride alone. Especially with terrain like that. None of us ever think it will happen to us.

Great riding by the way, and thanks for the videos
