2015 GSA Tires, bag dividers and Highway pegs

I have been digging for over a week on this.. Finally need to ask for input.

So I need some more off road friendly tires (maybe 30-40% off road/gravel).

I was looking at Scouts and see they don't offer for the 2015 GSA. I need 170/60 - 17 rear and 120/70 - 19 front.

The only real option I can locate is a Metzeler Karoo 3, but they are said to be low milage (4,000 ish)

Also looking for highway pegs for a GSA.. just something to let me stretch out the legs on a long trip.

These are one of the few options I can find but not sure how well they will work

Lastly.. I have the OEM bags.. have Kathy liners for side bags but am trying to figure out a way to organize the rear bag. Driving me nuts currently since its my "junk drawer".

I have them on my '14 GSAW and would buy them again. Very well made, very functional, and easy to use.
And Advdesigns is tops to work with.

Can't really give a good suggestion regarding tires based on the info provided. TKC or Karoo are IMHO good choices, but any tire that has knobs is going to give you less total mileage before replacement vs. a more street oriented tire.

For storage organization have you looked at 'Stuff Boxx'?

I usually keep stuff in smaller nylon zippered cases that are different colors for easy ID.

Highway pegs and off road tires is a very strange combination

Its exactly why I love the bike.. I like options! Pegs for long haul trips and the knobbies for a local heavy dirt trip.

I've already accepted that I'll be changing tires for some trips rather than wearing them out prematurely.

110-80-19 and 150-70-17 work fine on the GSAw. No worries at all.
