I'm planning a trip up the James Bay Road for next summer. This involves significant pavement riding, and I will likely burn up a set of tires on the trip. The KLR is the natural choice among my bikes because if its simplicity and huge range -- about 400 miles with the IMS and Rotopax can.

I'm thinking of tire choices for the trip. I won't need anything particularly aggressive, but I would like strong and durable. I've run Avon Distanzias in the past, but the last set on my Weestrom were a disappointment.

Any suggestions?

I am also thinking of the Eagle Mike fork brace, so I can drop the front fender down (windy up there), and the Gold Seal cartridge emulators. Are these worth the biscuit for a ride of this nature?
