Good luck with that. They may be OK tires most of the time, but their problems are well-documented and undeniable. With so many other good choices out there, I would never take that risk.

I put on 705's for a 5k mile trip, and hated myself for it afterwards. They're OK, but don't really do anything well. And for some reason, 705's + tar snakes = near death

Here is mine as of now. 2011 Wee ABS.



Farkles:

Centerstand
Panniers
Engine guards
Hand Guards (Suzuki)
Skid Plate
Highway pegs
Windshield (Cee Baily)
Garmin GPS
Alaskan Leather Wool seat pad
(Panniers, guards, pegs, skid plate and centerstand were from Happy Trails)

Bought it to make a trip to Alaska and perhaps Mexico - to be a stablemate to the 1520cc Valkyrie, but just cranked the Valk back up (first time since May). Find myself riding the Vstrom everywhere now. Awesome little bike!!!!!

I've never run the 705s before but I've ridden with quite few guys who run them and are very happy with them - and on heavier bikes than the Strom. If they don't work I'll swap them out. I'll let you know.

Nice looking bike. Word of wisdom . Loose the bungie cords and get some proper straps for your strap on luggage. Much much safer.
