I saw a thread on VSRI somewhere a while back, he had made a couple of brackets up to clip onto his GIVI crash bars and he had a tyre strapped on each side, something I am considering as well
By the looks of the setup, with my failing memory, there seemed to be no knee interference, but I think it would depend on leg length etc, you may have to do a search on that site and maybe pose a question if you cannot find it, it is full of helpful people, sorry I cannot give the direct link at this time.

I'm already really concerned about how the rear suspension is going to handle the weight I'm putting on.
Anybody outthere with a VStrom 650 who could tell me if there's aenough room in the front for the tyres without obstructing the knees?
