Heidenau K60 Scout Rear Tire A true 50/50 dual sport tire, the Heidenau K60 Scout brings a proven balance of performance on- and off-road. With an improved tread and compound, the Heidenau K60 Scout dual sport tires deliver better cornering stability and wet weather grip on the pavement, while delivering off-road as well. The chevron style tread pattern is similar to full knobby designs which provides lots of open space between the tread blocks to route sand, mud and water from the contact patch while constantly keeping some rubber in contact with the road as the tire rotates. This tire is a stand-out as it does not sacrifice on-road longevity and adhesion to the pavement for off-road traction. A difficult feat for any tire to accomplish. TL Tubeless TT Tube Type Tire Note: The K60 Scout tread pattern will vary depending on tire size. 170/60B17 has a wider flat center tread as depicted in the 2nd image.

I've tried pretty much every tire that will fit my 2011 GSA and so far the Heidenau K60 meets or exceeds all my tire expectations. Perfect for fire roads, gravel and unimproved county roads, not as much fun in mud or sand. Plus the K60s run very well on the asphalt. Not too noisy and for my style of riding, plenty grippy in the rain.
Mileage is outstanding. Marina and I just came back from a two up cross country trip...Super slab, gravel roads, etc and the rear tire, after 11,00 miles of riding are still serviceable. The front tire still looks new!
We highly recommend the K60s. Give a pair a try-you won't be disappointed.

We've had several sets of 705s on my R1200 GSA, and we really like them. Our GSA is normally ridden two up, with a total rider weight of 280 lbs. Rears last about 5-7 k miles, and the fronts seem nearly indestructible; my last one finally wore out at about 14K.
The Shinkos remain firmly planted on the asphalt, wet or dry. We also spend time on dirt/gravel fire and logging roads where these tires also seem at home. Gravel performance is good, but mud performance not so much; the treads fill up with gunk leaving the tire surface slick. Fortunately this hasn't been an issue for us as we try to avoid mud!
Overall, an excellent tire for nearly all conditions you might expect on a ride!

I've been searching for a rugged, larger sized tank bag for my GSA and an up-coming ride to South America. The Wolfman Rainier fits the bill.
The Rainier is plenty roomy for all the things you might put in your tank bag. It is designed well with color coded zippers to differentiate between expansion and bag opening-a nice touch!
Another nice touch is the removable map case. No need to buy a complete new bag if the original is damaged!
The Rainier appears to be ruggedly made and is water repellant. I gave it a "good" rating for durability only because I haven't had it long enough to really put the bag through all kinds of conditions. Get a rain cover if you are thinking of riding in serious rain! In all, I'm sure this bag will be plenty rugged for everyday, long adventure rides!
The bag mounts easily on the tank, and is easy to remove or unattach for gas stops.
One last note....besides all the great features, it is two hundred dollars less expensive than some of those top of the line imported bags. Get the Rainier and be happy!
