On a more serious note...

For those of you that attended the show, which brand of knobbies were mounted on the white GSA (see first photo)? My dealer says I have an option between off road tires and dual sport street tires. I want to go with the knobbies, but I'd like to know the brand. It looks like RevZilla shows that the Karoo 3 and the TKCs are available in that size. TKCs, in the proper size are mounted on the bike in the second photo. Regarding the tires at the show, did you happen to notice if the tire size is consistent with the wheel size (120/70R19 and 170/60R17). Thanks.

Only the white one was with Karoo 3. The others were with Michelin Anakee.

I put TKC on my bike for this summer (GS LC). Nice. I have Karoo 3 ready for Maroco next year in the garage.

I think the knobbies at Milano were something other than Karoo 3s or TKCs.

They look like Michelin Anakee Wild Tires.

Thanks for the pic and finally showing the storage area on top of the tank.

Any predrilled ports in there to route a line so we can charge our phones?

It appears that by this pic, a peg lowering bracket will interfere with the side stand.
