That looks awesome! How's that Gpz treating you on the dirt roads? I tried that on my 550 gpz with normal street tires... that did not end well. :(

I've never found out! Here down under 125kph is a loss of licence

It's a VERY nice bike to ride between 80-120 it just works. My GPZ900R on the other hand, doesn't like to be ridden slow. It's great at 140-160 kph and above.

Shinko 804 front
Shinko 705 rear

The reason for the rear is I don't feel so confident (by the looks) of 805's lack of in-between knobs. People had been reporting sideway loss of traction.

It's awesome.

I think due to large 19" front rims which is basically like R1200GS. It handles corrugations very well.

Of course it doesn't like hitting potholes as the suspension travel will bottom out. Unlike my KLR650 with it's huge travel and 21" rims.

It's really a middle-of-the road bike with a bit of bitumen bias.
