I agree.

Your MC weighs well below the average ADV touring type. It would be easy to put it in the back of a truck if you needed big time help. And off you go. Not a good idea if you HAVE to be...

If you want to take a couple hours break while while riding and if it is warm and sunny and windy, set up tent and get a jump on things. Later it may be too late or colder or raininy to do this.

Keep an eye on the wind forcast in Casper, WY. Not sure about time of year it is the worst.

Question Pro and con of rear tyre?

Con.

Less life of tyre.
Less traction to grip mud and dirt when at a stand still.

Pros?
More nimble handeling.
With momentum, slice through sand and soft dirt without losing as much speed....

Ktm ?

Those are Orange Crush numbers. 990 ? But she is 461lbs dry

The roadie is close, but 70+ lbs over weight

I can't think of any MC made now a days for such numbers.

Maybe a pro for Roadie

With 30 more horses, the 800 could be a better 2up MC. This in turn would allow two wallets at the pump.:D

Not sure if the DL has better 2up ergos.

To add, the Tiger is 32% more powerful and weighs about the same, but you only spend 21% more at the pump. Meaning, you spend another 21 cents every time the DL650 spends a dollar.
