    The big blocks wear more even for me

    Of course, much harder compound I would imagine. Plus more contact patch. They are designed with heavier bikes in mind.

    I may be making a mistake, we will see. I wonder how braking in the rain will go with ABS and a knob on pavement.

    That's what I expect. So I pull it back off after the dirt ride, save it for the next one. Need to find a used 19", 17" set of wheels for this bike. It would be more fun on the road like that, and no more spooning!

    Really liked my TKC 80s in the sand. Way better than the Saharas I put on first

    That is surprising as the 2018 GSA weighs 535 while the old 1150 GSA was around 511 according to what I found.... I'd thought the AT would be lighter at 450-475....

    Keep in mind that is wet. 5 gallons of fuel adds 35 lbs. The DCT with ABS is 534 wet. Without those options 503, according to Honda...Mine has the manual trans with ABS.

    It doesn't feel that heavy to me. I laid it on the ground and was able to stand it back up by the grips while facing the bike. That is how I used to pick up the DRZ, they both lay very flat on the ground.

    I see, I don't know if that is dry or wet weight on the GS's but when they take a dirt nap they normally don't lay all the way over and are fairly easy to pick up... If you're a weightlifter... :lol3:patch

    Well, some women like nice kitchens and bathrooms, as not all of them want to cook over a campfire and wash up in a zinc tub....:lol3

    Mata is looking at Tiny Houses for Live Oak. I said no smaller than 1000 Sqft
    We are talking about adding another 2000 sqft on the shop and enclosing an area for the man cave
