Amen brother! I learned that years back in Maine where it cost me 330 bucks to replace tires that would of cost me 200 at home on my , then new , '02 R1150GS. You bet I change them now just in case.
I also wonder about the availability of 18" rears would be betta than 17's ? May be a good reason to lace in an 18" rim to the rear on a KLR if your gonna be traveling lots on it.
