The K60 is a fine tire, even if sloppy. Not nearly as agressive as a full knobby but more than enuf for scooting along. Previous posters are spot on with watching your speed. Fast Eddie and I absolutley rallied it last year but didnt stop for too many pix

....
I just put a pair of TKC 80 on F800 this morning.
First ride felt real good with 32 front and 36PSI rear.
Real nice street tire, so far.
Might try dropping pressure down to 25 Front, 30 rear on gravel, if they feel skittery at highway inflation.
.
Surprised how round they are... didn't notice any runout at either end, and the rear came up at ZERO balance, no weights req'd.
. front used an ounce.., had one laying around anyway..

I just installed mines back on.
Used dyna bead, ounce frt,2 ounce rear. And started with 32f,34rear for psi. Did a little off road and think I could had drop it a bit.

Will try to hit the Dalton this weekend. Yay.
May the sun shine bright !!!

F8 holds 4.2 gallons inside, not sure how much of THAT is usable.
My spare gas is (2) MSR bottles = half gallon.
Fox to Coldfoot 245 miles/ 4.7 Gallons = 52.13 miles per gallon.
I should be okay, but it will be cutting it close.
For a bit of range extension, I have a couple Techron 16 injector cleaners, and some Thermo-Aid ( ISO-Heet )
figure I'll dump ONE supplement in, and ONE quart of gasoline, at first piss break after Fox.. keep the other quart for emergency reserve.
probably do okay.
Repeat after coldfoot, and return..

The question mark of course is how much extra energy I burn climbing Atigun pass, and how mileage will be TWO-up.
I am hopeful that with speeds under 55 MPH, I can make closer to 60 miles per gallon.
We'll see.

Good seeing you on your test run around town this evening.

You sure look mighty comfortable on that bike with those TKC's.

Good luck and have fun, Mark H.

Haha I was wondering who you was !

Nice seeing you two !

Met Drunkuncle at the eagle river fireworks show. Currently going ok now ..

--- the testing went fine with the tkc,saddle ,& gears. Packed much lighter than when i rode I to Cali, drop some psi, & tweak the suspension a bit.

Confirm:
F800GS can run two-up, Coldfoot to Deadhorse on internal fuel supply.
We used 4.01 gallons. Signage claims 240 miles, bikes tripmeter called 237.8
We ran slow, kept it down to 50 miles per hour until we got North of Atigun, then we let it run 55 the rest of the way.
Managed near 60 miles per gallon with a passenger.
