I just sold my F800GS with TKCís and loved those tires, So When I bought the 1200 my first thought was to get rid of the tires. As fait may have it there are no knobby tires of this size in Australia as yet so I have to make do until the end of June. To be honest these tires surprised the s*#t out of me. Iím now thinking that Iíl keep them. I ride this machine pretty hard rocky rutted roads uphill gravel and hi speed fire trails up to 110kph no problems no loose moments or front end tucks. Havenít tried them in really muddy parts yet , they are great on the twisty roads they stick like s*#t to a blanket , up until now not a problem I love them.

Here is my pig.
I stumbled across this one at my dealer, with all the options I had in mind. (Comfort/Dynamic II package + cruise control, Nav IV, alarm and spoked wheels)

Picking it up in less than 24 hours.
