I am assuming I don't want to go to supermoto wheels because I don't want to have to change brake mounting points, gearing etc. I just want to be able to easily swap wheels so that if I am going to spend the day on the road (dirt or paved) I can have a better ride than I would with the normal non-DOT knobbies.

So, what is the best rim/hub combo for a reasonable price and do I need a cush hub?
the familiar mantra goes like this--
1..2.50x19'' front
2..4.25x17 rear
3..cush drive
simple as that,,,cush drive hub and sprocket assy swap with your existing rear hub,,maximum choice of dual sport tires available ,,,ie same size as all the BMW dual sports...check my web site below for prices,,i'm in germany,,i'm in germany,,,my troops will help you for sure,,, woody
