It's not a big town so we'll have no issue meeting up. A bit of quality time at the pub on Saturday night is in order I think.

What do you guys think about meeting a bit earlier than 9? Bit more time to relax and see the sights of Hill End.

I'm happy to leave earlier. Just set a set time time leave so if we meet for 7:30 and leave for 8:00.. So by 8:00 have your bike already fuelled and your maccas feed. So we don't go ok let's go and then we need to stop straight away for fuel.

In saying that if people are late or having issues, were not gonna be jerks and go we warned you.
I think that all made sense lol.

I'm excited for this trip! Got some new tyres fitted.

Heidenau have a squarer profile Scott, might be why the corner differently.

I have Mitas E07 on the rear of the Wee and Mefo Explorer on the KLE, both roll over very easily on the tar and grip very well in the dirt.

I don't think it so much to do with the tread. More that the tyre and tubes weigh more than the standard tubes and tourances, so when I get moving the rolling mass is more on each wheel is heavier to take of the straight line. I will get use to it. Just surprised how much the difference is.

Good work Mal. Hope to see you there.
Is your new bike a 640 Adventure?

When I said "roll over" I meant how easily the tyre leans in to a corner, not rolling resistance to get it moving, sorry I should have chosen my wording better.

The squarer profile of the K60 means it will sit at right angles to the road more naturally and therefore takes more effort to get it to transition to leaning in a corner (I've heard riders commenting on how they feel different to corner with).

Both the Mitas and the Mefo have a rounder profile and lean over very easily on corners.

You should not feel any difference in getting a tubed tyre rolling from standstill compared to a tubeless if the tyre pressures are correct.
It would take some very sophisticated equipment to detect the extra force required to overcome the added inert mass of the tube.

The Heidenau K60 is highly regarded among Stommers and others among the bigger dual sport bike riders.

They are really at the top of the tree for adventure touring, good choice Scott.

PV and others,

I'm not going to manage coming along on this trip, other things are starting to take precedence.

I will be watching this thread for developments and will look forward to a bevy of ride reports from everyone.
