Sweet Daddy,
Have a good ride....tubless tires???....Take lotsa plugs and DO NOT run tires under 30 lbs pressure no matter WHAT you may be told ( from other experts like me)...because????...Every GSer/950 KTMer who has a flat or bent rim did so because of low tire pressure...unless, of course, it was caused by a puncture....low tire pressure results frequently in pinch flats or,in the case of one GSer w/ Metzler Tourances, a front tire bulge that severely compromised his 2-week trip after 3 days ....he wasn't sure how safe it would be and when the bulge would blow....

Que via bien, amigo
