Jomme, what was wrong with 'Tentman'?
Jomme is a nick I used before on some places. Only when I had already subscibed here, it dawned on me that I was apprently Tentman here :-)

Ideal would be"Jomme aka Tentman" . Tried to change it yesterday, but it seems to be beyond my intellectual capabilities

Indeed, had a look as well. Ignoring the TKC's since being not the "brightest bulbs in the box", my next choice would be the Karoo's or the Rally's. Believe the Heidi's K60 would not have been the best on last weekend's roads.

Karoo on the back, rally in the front.
K60s would not be able to cope with the mud on some of the trails.

your front tyre never sees the back one, does it, so don't bother about it

On the big KTM, I run a D908 in the rear and a MT21 in front. We did a 100+km liaison on tarmac, last year in the Alps. Inflate to normal road pressure and just GO!!!!!!!!!
