I have read almost everything on this website and am very confused on tires for my upcoming trip. I would like your suggestion in relationship to tires for my upcoming trip to the NWT and Alaska. I have a R1200GS. I have ridden for over 40 years but am far from an expert on gravel and mud. I am leaving from Missoula going to Whitehorse to Dawson to Inuvik (Dempster) to Tok (by way of the Top of the World) to Missoula. I would like to not change tires during the trip. I have had Tourances and Anakees and know what they can do. I went to Alaska in 2009 but not on the Dempster, Dalton, or Top of the World - Had Tourances I realize this all depends on road conditions due to weather when I go in July. I realize individuals do it on HDs, Goldwings, etc. and on all types of tires, especially under perfect condition. Weather will cause us to adjust and use a little common sense. This is what I am currently thinking as choices. What is your best all-around recommendation: a. TKCs b. TKC front, Heidenau K60 rear c. Anakee 3s, if they are available d. Shinko 705s (this is currently my last choice) Thanks in advance for your input.
