    Thanks for your reply.
    Great that you DO ride the bike on forest dirt/gravel/rock. And the full picture of the bike is impressive and the tyres certainly add to the 'look' :nod I like it!

    Prior to my BMW GS bikes i had a BMW 800GT with road tyres and i rode the bike on unsealed roads many times. Riding to the conditions, the only deficiency was the front fork travel if i hit a bump or hole i did not see or see in time. Non spoke wheels can also be an issue. More road bike riders should venture off sealed roads. It can be done, if only they knew what they are missing out on.
