What would be a good tire setup for a noob on a f650 dakar? I've been debating between getting some TKC 80s or something even more aggressive (T63, D606 etc). The TKCs would be more useful once I get home, but I would like to have tires that are somewhat confidence inspiring.

I'd go with the aggressive, taller knobbies for the reason you pointed out. It's best to have as much confidence as possible.

D606 front and a T63 rear. The rear tire can be found on Amazon for under $70 with free shipping, although you may need to buy two for this. The front costs around $90.

The T63 is a directional tire and in my opinion hooks up in turns better than d606. I'm on my second t63 now. They just don't last quite as long as a d606.

For the front the 606 is a great choice, the TKC is better on road but not as good off compared to the 606 plus the TKC has weaker sidewalls and more prone to flats in the desert.

between you and geoff (older jeep wagon) we could be able to set up something.

anyone else into radio comm? please chime in.
I am bringing a set of GMRS/FRS radios. Surprisingly, they held up great during a week long bachelor party in London.

They're nothing like HAM equipment, but nice to have as a backup and seems like most people have them/HAM guys can easily use that freq.

Two way radios and a weeklong bachelor party? There must be a story there.

It got out of hand. I showed up jet lagged and stressed out with six bottles of absinthe, the real stuff not the crap you can get in the states or eastern europe. Had to pilot a boat that sleeps eight. Mayhem ensued.

The radios held up great, had to fix one but it was actually repairable, something to be said for that.
