I know what you mean Hillbilly. I just wanted to try it out. I thought I would kill my TKC 80, but it still has a little before the treadware indicator. I just won't die. It has roughly 3000 miles on it. I am going to put the E07 Dakar on it right before D2D with a new TKC 80 front. That is 3000 miles on an 06 Tiger 955i with atleast half of that fullly overloaded.
You know what they say, the bigger your luggage the more crap that you don't need you take. I have 41 liter touratechs.
