Which Bike = Make, Model, Year
How Heavy = What percentage (%) do you ride with a passenger (and what do they weigh?) Also do you carry loaded saddlebags/topcase, etc (and what do they weigh and what percentage of the time?)
Which Tires (Tyres) = What type of riding? Off-road, commute, adventure or sport-touring , etc.? Example: 60% commute 30% adventure touring 10% aggressive off-road.
Rider Weight = what you weigh WITH your gear on

I would suggest we (as in non-metric countries) convert pounds or stones to kilograms so Herr Hubert doesn't need to worry about the math.
I'll translate his form and make it available. It's actually Herr Hofmann, Hubert is his first name.
