My buddy bought a GS and wants me to do some "adventuring" with him, but I'm a bit nervous. lol

The Michelins work fine on hard pack. Might not be the same on goop, though. Pirelli makes a 60/40 tire that will fit the F800R in the MT60-R. I think the Pirelli Scorpion Trail might be available, as well. Metzler makes a cruiser tire in the ME880 that fits. Interestingly, Touratech doesn't sell the tire it shows in the pic of the Scrambler kit. I wrote to them and the response was maybe it was a Heidenau K60 scout or a TKC 80. I can't find either of those anywhere that would fit the F800R stock rims.
