    yeah this too. I have a buddy who is like you in this regard. I could never squeeze much more than 4,000 on the rear. The front always cupped out around 6,000. But I liked to peel out on gravel :lol3

    This is a response I got directly from Michelin UK after asking for the tire sizes and when it will be on the market (the email is 3 months old):
    "Hello Pavel,
    Thanks for getting in touch with Michelin.
    We are currently hoping to have 4 sizes next spring, 120/70 R 19 54V, 170/60 R 17 72R, 110/80 R 19 59V and 150/70 R 17 69V, however we have no confirmed dates as yet, so this is very much just planned at the moment.
    I hope that this helps,
    Best regards,

    Tony

    You're kidding right? It's yet another example of BMW designing parts in a dark room. Well, several dark rooms because not one parts seems to fit next to the part, er, next to it. What a dogs dinner.

    Tyres look good. I'll wait to see how long they last and whether they make proper sizes.

    Oh you're so right. Thanks for letting me know my opinion. I'll refer to your design aesthetic from now on.
    So why do you ride a bike that took most of its design cues from the GS line?

    Any word on sizes other than the GSW's? I have loved the road profile Anakee 2 and 3s and I am definitely up for snagging a pair of these, if they were to come in a 90/90 21 and a 150/70 17.
