R1200GSA, I'll prolly do about 8k miles Georgia to Pacific NW for the Rally and back, one-up, lightly loaded. Which tire (both, or just rear)?
Heidi K60 or Heidi K76?
I want something mildly off-road capable; a Tourance would prolly do it but mebbe not. 8k is about the outside limit for me and Tourances, especially on freeways in hot weather bucking a headwind. I hear good things about Heidenaus; the K60 has much deeper tread than a K76, and a solid center section. The K76 is more of an 80/20 tire but seems to have tread only about 2/3 as deep as a K60 Scout. Which gets better pavement miles?
I will not buy Michelin motorcycles, ever. Been screwed four time by them.
Mefo doesn't make a fitment for the big GS.
I don't want to be looking for a back tire while on the trip.
What, oh wise ones, is the collective wisdom?
