    No TKC80 experience. I mostly ride streetbikes on street, and dirtbikes on dirt. But I did put 30k miles on a heavily modified DR650 and I either ran D606s or T63 rears.

    I have 2000 hard miles on this rear and it's not even half worn. 85-95 mph on 395, 8 days in the desert, then 85-95 mph back up to the bay.
    So far, very impressed.

    Spring is best time to go offroading, atleast where I live. Lots of water everywhere and not so dusty. I like.

    I honestly don’t know if I could do that hill on a bike that size. That was pretty gnarly.

    I also noticed how similar that 700 sounds to my old Honda 700XX atv. They sound almost identical.

    I refuse to take a paved road when a dirt one is available. Unfortunately, the dirt one doesn't get snow removal. 2nd fail in 2 weeks trying to cross the mountains for Fish-n-chips. At least I got 2 miles further than last weekend, and as then, got my consolation Fish-n-chips at Walley's on the way home. BTW, a 16 tooth counter shaft sprocket makes this bike a whole lot better (less strung out) for me as stock is geared too low. I'm comparing between last weeks ride, and this weeks identical ride. Upshifts and downshifts so much smoother, 1st is still like a tractor, but 6th is now like a 6th. This engine doesn't need to always scream as torque is available in any gear at any RPM.

    Only a few off-road pics, most are on roads. Lots of former GS owners here?
