Hello. Sorry about bringing this one up again.....

I have an XR400 and ride in a thorny area and am sick of flats. Almost committed to buying the Michelin Bib Mousse and I think it should work well. Most rides end up being under 100kms.

But I have a long tour coming up. Will include about 1000kms on roads (pavement) and 1000kms on broken mountain roads and offroad/gravel.

If I run the roads at speeds upto only 80 km/h (50mph) for 2-3 hours at a stretch, would this screw up the mousse?
The reason I have to ask, despite reading the thread, is that there's talk of DS/Dual Sport rides etc, but just want to be sure about "roads" or "pavement".

Carrying spare tubes is not a problem, but would hate to throw away the mousse tube on the ride if it can be expected to fail.
