Love all the fall pictures everyone. I got out today for a bit of romping around before the snow flies again

Ready to go! No, I did not clean it since last weeks ride



Fun high speed road here with perfect whoops for jumping!



Lots of rocky parts with drop off's too like this one that you come up to really quick and have to know it is there. Do you see it? Me neither, but I know it is there!



80 miles in the dirt today. Fun times!!!

I have a question concerning tires.

I've got a F650GS non-Dakar (with stock 100/90 19 and 130/80 17 Tourance), what are the maximum dimensions that I can mount on this guy ?

I'd really want Heidenau K60 Scout, but there are only available in 110/80 19 for the front. Will it work ? (I know that it's not a problem with TKC-80, but have no idea for the Scout) If not, would a mix of K60 (non Scout) front (in 100/90) and a K60 Scout rear (130/80) work correctly ? What is exactly the difference between the two ?

Thanks !

So far so good. It is the best setup for noise and wind protection yet and I did experiment with GIVI, ZTechnik and stock. I have not found the perfect setting yet as I still want the silence but would like a little wind on the helmet.

The last ride I was in some light drizzle and the screen caught it but any drizzle I had on the visor wouldn't move unless I sat up to clear it off once in a while.

Is it intended for the 650gs? Or did you take from another bike?

Yes, was from an Adventure Pipe, but they are not making the conversion anymore. Many have used Supertrapps and just made an adapter to fit it to the header. Any exhaust shop should be able to do it.
