Heidenau K70's (on my 2nd set for the G/S) will easily go 7,000 miles, I've gotten 8,000 plus on the R80 G/S which weighs a lot more than the Husky. They aren't an issue to mount by hand, just use tire lube, but you know that. I just put a rear on the G/S in 20 minutes three days ago, but no rim locks, but your probably using the tubliss. If you;re gonna be in sand or mud then you'll hate the K60's, go w/ the 606's you know what to expect with them. K60's will treat you good in gravel and hard pack.
I want to see pictures of the camp sites!!!!
