Tyre Choice- Round the world on a DR-z400
In a few weeks, a mate and I leave the UK and head off on a round the world ride. We'll firstly be heading for Russia, then when we make it that far, ferry down to S.Korea then fly the bikes over to Alaska to ride from there down to Argentina.
The majority of my mods etc have now all been finalised but we are still not sure on the best tyre choice for a trip of this nature. My guess is that from the UK to Russia we will be riding tarmac but around that area we will be hitting the dirt.
I'm assuming that the best idea will be to head off on road tyres and strap knobblies to the back ready for when we hit that part of the world. Any thoughts on this?
If so, what tyres should we start out on and which knobblies shall we carry on the back?
Thanks in advance.
