No worries regarding the speaker. Not sure we will catch you in Spain though - we are waylaid at the moment waiting for spare parts. We have been caught by the end of Ramadan celebrations and are still waiting for the couriers to reopen. You've got a typo in Anders' website I think: www.voodoochile.se (like the Hendrix song spelling) is the one. We were lucky enough to meet Anders in Brazzaville. Champion bloke and even though he is reasonably new to bikes, he is a very experienced traveller. His website is a goldmine for Africa overlanders and he maintains it all himself. Does all his maps himself. He is a cool fella. We spoke about tyres as he changed to a new K60 rear in Brazzaville. I tend to think his setup is far more suitable to the k60 than yours, the major factor being weight. His AT has a massive touratech tank and is seriously loaded. I moved it in the car park, it is HEAVY. Loaded and fueled he must be at 80-100kgs heavier than our DRs. It's a big big unit. We tried K60s based on all the hype and I was not impressed. We had the ones without the centre strip which should have been better off-road than the ones designed for the big rigs, and it was pretty underwhelming. I found the carcass just too bloody hard, off-road I'd let out pressure and let out pressure and let out pressure and it still wouldn't hook up. The rubber is just too hard for lighter bikes. And while you've got the 1190 which ain't particularly light, it's definitely a lot lighter than the 1200GSAs and the like that this tyre is really designed for. Plus your soft luggage setup is a fair bit lighter than the average GS hard luggage rig. We found the K60 not particularly hard wearing, they were toast with less than a mm of tread left from bald with 11500kms on them. That was after ripping essentially every knob on the rocks around lake Turkana in northern Kenya. The rubber was just too hard. Check out our Turkana posts you'll see some piccies. If you do choose to go through with the K60, you'll just have to come to terms with the loss of traction off-road. Just don't believe the hype about the tyres being awesome off-road, reading reviews I tend to think that mostly comes from people on big bikes who have come from road riding background who compare them to tourances and the like. If your coming from the other end of the spectrum, the off-road side and comparing them to decent 50/50 tyres like the TKC80 you've currently got, they suck. Hard. Personally, I much prefer the Mitas E07 rear tyre, it's much better off road and in our experience lasts very well. We had some in Southern Africa and got 12500kms on them before replacing. We actually took them off early, they would have gone another 2500kms easy I reckon but we were carrying knobbies and about to ride a lot of sand in Botswana. But the E07 front sucks. The TKC80 is a much better tyre to pair with a Mitas E07 rear. A Mitas E10 also a good choice of front. TKC80 front and E07 rear is a great all round combo for 50/50 adv riding. Anyway, if you do go with K60, I'll be keen to hear what you think of it. If you're sticking mostly to tar down the west coast you'll probably like it. But if you go exploring off-road here and there.... they ain't so flash.
