My Wall - Post Me a Message

Hi Ted
A mate of mine (Joe Bar) suggested I message you about front tyres for the Versys. Basically I'm doing some mods ready for offroading through Portugal and down to Morocco next year.
My background is offroading for 7 years on enduro bikes and UK Rallies on CCM644 and BMW F650GS. I've also got a 1200GS which I use for 2 up touring and did Morocco (on tarmac) a couple of years ago. Ideally I don't want to change the front wheel as I prefer to keep things as stock as possible but I do need tyres which can do some offroading including wet stuff. So any suggestions??
Thanks in advance.
