One of the things I learned from conversing with the boys at Woody's Wheelworks is that the 12GS stock set up is almost ideal for road riding. My experiences on the street confirm that IMO. While the HP2 21/17 combo is great off-road and the 17/17 combo is great on the track the R12GS 19/17 combo seemed to cover all facets. That's my experience.
Dale, every time that I have a "weak" moment and think about sell her, I just take a ride... And that was the blessing of buying the HP 2. Have your cake and eat it to.

I didn't know any better, when I started riding my 1100 GS I had T 66's on the rims. Street/dirt it didn't matter. I had no dirt back round to tell me how nave I was. White Rim by day, touring home at night. Ahhhh, the old days.

Thanks for you input. Jim
