Wide: i use 16-46 for my roadwheels (equal to the 15-43 you think about), seems like a nice compromise if you dont do much technial offroad, and find yourself more on the streets and open roads. The gap from 1st to 2nd seems a bit longer tho', but nothing too big of a problem :)
Cheers Jens I did read your post on the Tenere forum and guessed you would answer. The bike is pretty good on the 15/45 but its just a touch slow on the road when you want to go a bit quicker for a couple of hours. I used to do this stuff on my XR400 but goin with a smaller rear sprocket to give a pleasant road speed and then swapping the front over was nice and easy and gave good off road gearing. Mind the Honda front sprocket could be changed in 5 mins with x2 10mm bolts, Im not so sure the XT is so quick
Honda Transalp 650.. back on the old favorite
XT 600 E... thumping fun but not for motorways
Suzuki DR350... mellow fun but now gone
XR 400 gone
Transalp 600 gone
