My tires recommendation is a Pirelli MT43 trials tire on the rear. It will be good for 95% of the riding you do from rocks to 100+ on the highway. Lasts a long time too. Front is up to you. MT21 is a good choice. Be careful of breaking the rear subframe with too much weight. There is a TE610 owners thread with all the info you could possibly want on Advrider.
moto, are you going to be at the CNR? If so, I will definitely want to check out the '06 TE. I bake so put an order in ahead of time

I'm really most excited about the fact that this will be the first time ill be camping off the bike. It's a learning process, something that takes a bit of planning and prep. Especially the first time. It'll be nice to have it worked outwith a checklist. The ride and relaxing in the evening are the reward for all the hard work.

I might take a ride down if the weather is nice. Yeah, I'm getting old and wimpy. What day is it?

Same day as the Putnam Turkey Run, see post #1. Your best bet is late Saturday afternoon if you're just visiting.

Thanks "Motogo1". "it's the right tool for the job" is JUST what I wanted to hear --- especially from someone with 20,000 miles on their own TE610 . MT43 for rear ordered and sticking with the 75% life MT21 up front. Thanks also to a couple others who chimed in with advice.

Can't wait for the riding, the camping, the food, the booze, and the all-important BS'ing...

Yes, there is something very satisfying about traveling and being self-sufficient about it. Part of the fun is that you will likely continue to plan and prep as you try little bit different arrangements for your setup. At least I seem to end up screwing with it form time to time.

With my shoulder, I wanted to wait until the Rock Ride to give it 100% on the little bike. I'll see you up at Central Cycle Club the morning of 5/12. No CnR that weekend, I promise.

oh no, I loooove this bike. I want a bigger bike for our long-distance riding; I've been looking for an '06 TE610 in New England/mid-Atlantic for months, and there's nothing suitable. And yes, it has to be an '06.

I'm really looking forward to this CNR...so many new folks!

Why an '06. because of the carb or the color?
