Rollin,

What Dual Sport tire are you thinking for the front? I am taking a trip up to Prudhoe and would like your tire recommendation. I was thinking a Heidenau K60? Will you still go with the run flat on the rear for your off road adventure?

Are you taking you Vision Tour on that adventure with the tour pack on or off?

Thanks,

Gregg

I'm going to try a Shinko 700 Series 130/80-18 on the front. It was one of the few tubeless tires I could find in that size. The next trip I want to try will be less than 3000 miles so I don't think tire wear will be a problem with the Shinko.
I don't think I would try a long distance ride with it.

I am going to use the Winter Sport run flat on the rear and will also be removing the trunk and packing light.

You, Sir, are an inspiration! Excellent Report. Almost as if the reader was riding with you! Thank you. (I followed the link you posted on the FB Group! )

Question I always ask and always interests me is the ATGATT.
Can you please share what Gear you wore and carried with you - Jacket/pants/boots etc...

Salute and Respect.
