  1. Hi all - am still finding my way and somewhat lost. I think this is going up in the Members Lounge but .....
    I also want to ask a question but can't find the appropriate forum - the touring bike last entry was a couple of years ago! :(
    I have a BMW R1200RT and am looking for advice on fitting on/off road tyres. Possible?
    Good to be here ......I think!

    One more thing - I loooove the RT but it's places like in the avatar pic that I enjoy. Was thinking about the GS but have to give up too many of the creature comforts so if I can do it with the right tyres then I'm a happy boy.
  2. Thanks C-man

  5. The RT will not be a good off-roader.
    Less suspension travel and different damping rates to the GS as well as lower to the ground.

  9. Thanks guys. Tweet I'm not wanting to go moto-x :confused: but more on these 'gentle' off the bitumen roads - like the dirt roads up north in WA - eg Karrajini NP - good roads but nice to have a bit more of a chunky grip on them.
    Scary likeness freedom but I've got a scratch on the front guard! ps - we all need drug dispensers
