Very, very nice! I like how the red 650 matches the subframe.

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 !

Ive heard you can go one size up, But I'm not the expert.
EMototire.com has the 100/90/19 and good people too.

How did you attach them? I am looking to do the same on the same frame and would love some input.

This is the replacement - the salvage bike was sold off as parts... I have a pic of both of them together somewhere

It's great Matt. Stripped and repainted it (had mismatched plastics) and resprung the front and rear ( I'm a bit taller and heavier than Shep). New shoes and armor and just had it and my other Dakar in Baja. Been pushing both really hard on/off road and not a hiccup!
