I can bring a grill too!!!

I am planning on DS ride on saturday only at this time. I don't want to bash the hell out of the Tenere for the ADV race. I have never done anything like that before. I will be installing Scorpian Rally on the front, don't know yet about rear tire. Would a BigBlock be good enough?

Oh, I will look to get a spot near the PSSOR ADV area as well.

For most of us in this class, suspension will be the limiting factor not tires. I ran Dunlop 606 last year and it was great. I could have just as easily used a Big Block, TKC 80 or even a K60 without any issues. I slid down some greasy hills but anything short of studded would have done the same.
