p.s. I see the deadline to send payment is approaching quickly, i'm going to paypal mine tomorrow. :)

Look forward to meeting every one!

There is a lot to see by road. And there are usually a few road bikes out there that ride together.

If you are going to explore the dirt routes you need knobby tires. TKC's are one of the top choices for the F8. The Heideneau K60 is also popular, but the front is marginal at best so you're still better off with a TKC for the front if you put a K60 on the back.Or any other popular dualsport front knobby, such as D606, T63, Karoo2, Scorpion Rally, d908, K777, and etc..

If I was taking my Tiger for some dirt road routes I would keep the shinko 705 knock-off I use (Fullbore USA M40) on the back, and install a knobby front for that trip.

If you want some mileage and want something to keep on for more and upcoming rides, probably would just have TKC's installed.

I ran the Pirelli Scorpion Rally on the front of my TE630 for almost 4K miles, was a fantastic tire. They are also popular on the big KTM's with assorted rears. Good price too. I'm pretty sure I'm going Michy Desert Racing next.

With some research here on ADV you should be able to find out the most popular offroad setup for the F8's. Use google instead of the resident search engine. Use this syntax: site:advrider.com [search term] by inserting your search words where I have the brackets like this: site:advrider.com f800gs knobby tires
A ton of results come up with this search alone.

I can't tell how the layout has changed, but anywhere 56-60 or 62-73 is fine. It's just my truck with a hitch mounted rack. This should leave plenty of space for another truck, etc. Thanks!
I put you in #56, close to Joel.

#33 and #140 in list.
OK. #59 and #60 is all yours. 4 trucks.

Our newest item arrived in the warehouse last week and I have one to donate to the big raffle.

Body Glove Marine GPS-VHF Radio by Nautilus Lifeline - MSRP $400





Also met with the guys at Goal Zero last week who have some great solar power battery charging stations. They may be showing up at PSR with some swag.

I have no legitimate need but man I want this!

Counting down the days until I can snipe some poor unsuspecting fool's seat out from under him.



PS - Thanks for all the work on this guys. I know what it involves as I've been on the planning end of quite a few events of a different nature (although usually not as big as this).
