I'm not sure. Brian and I are supposed to be leading the GS ride again this year. I haven't really ventured out onto dirt on the new GS yet, and don't really want the first time out during an organized ride. I would be much more comfortable on my DRZ400 that I rode last year. Then again, I don't think this years GS ride is going to be as "dirty" as it was last year- we had some complaints about some (of the fun) sections. Personally I was thinking about doing the road ride this year just to change things up...but I guess I'll have to see where the GS ride is going to take us and make a decision. I too am on a GS with Anakee 3's... Not the best tire for off road.
