A friend did the same trip on T63 and I agree they grip longer but I have had enough of DS tires, non of them last long and the grip they provide is most usually a compromise. I wont be going back from real FIM enduro tires as I'm ready to sacrifice all of the on road riding for a proper grip off road.
@G-funk....no build thread but I can tell you what I did; my IMO died, not just battery but completely, as Touratech wanted 300€ to fix it I ordered a relatively cheap Electrosport unit for 60 something $. The surrounding plastic is from a 2003 model with a 12V outlet - fits right in. The mask for the space around the unit I made from 2mm aluminum and painted it black. The bracket inside is simple and fixes in place with two screws that hold both the bracket for the unit and the mask....
If you would like I can take pics next time I tear into the bike.....
