    I used a scorpion rally both front and rear, they worked great. I'm sure just about any semi-fresh knobby will be fine.

    Speaking of flat tires, if you get a flat tire do you plan on changing it right then and there or limp it back to the road for a pickup? Words of wisdom from past experiences?

    I was lucky, it didnt go flat. The nail was half way in the tire at an angle the parallel to the tube and inner wall of the tire. I took it down to one of the vendors and for $10 he dismounted and looked it over and put it back together. I just had to pack it the 1/4 mile to him and wait the 3 hours. I would say on the trail for me it would depend how far out I was. I run 2 wheel locks on the back wheel so I would probably just keep going if I was close to the exit or start. Halfway back I would fix it. On the front you just stop and fix it.

    Thanks, I tried to ride a front flat on a gravel road a few years ago. It pretty much tried to throw me off every minute until it won. I learned...

    One great thing about the K60's. I rode some on the highway with zero PSI. It didn't pop the beat until I slowed down and turned at the stoplight. Pretty stout, but not aggressive enough for the DS ride.

    I am running a Dunlop 606 on the rear right now. I think its the 130/90-18 and I love it. I am no sloutch on the right hand twisty action with my KTM 520 and it is holding up great. I ride alot of gravel and big sharp rock areas and I think I will get 2000 miles out of it.

    To bad they don't make a decent tire for the big KTMs. Ive always liked the Kendas Ive ran on other bikes.

    Cant wait for this! I'm working on building up the shop van in between sets of boingers this week. Hopefully will have a good amount done by the D100 so I can "REST" in comfort before the race...

    Understanding why the 652 requirement %100, I would like to see an exception made for KLRs. They are most certainly NOT Dakar killers, unlike a certain XR. I would think we may get a few more entry's into the class. Mild suggestion:wink:

    Smokin add BTW:clap
