I've had friends tell me that I need to lace up some Supermotard wheels. I don't think I'm up to that anymore.

690 Enduro R, geared a tad lower, touches 100 occasionally and it feels like 75 on my other bike. 100 on the dirt is a rush.
Nice thing about tubed is that you can buy HD tubes and not worry as much about flats. Although, I have plugged my
R1200's tire 25-miles from civilization, thanks to tubeless.

we could go all day debating pro's and cons... One thing I can GUARANTEE...those who want tubeless will make the change...those who don't, won't...

Tubed for me. I'm mostly going to go off road with it and I can just sneak of with my brother's sports bike when I want to ride on paved roads.

Tubes

Radials for the road.
Tubes for the trail.
Credit card and a cell phone trumps them both!!

Seems like tubes would be better when a puncture is larger than your teeny-weeny little tire plug. You can have a pretty big tear/rip in the sidewall of a tire and still get home if you have a tube (dollar bill trick?). Do the more aggressive knobby tires would not come in radials these days?

Of course the seat is going to suck, it's a Honda!

The Africa Twin looks like it was designed for dirt first and asphalt second, so bias-ply, tube-type tires would seem to be the way to go. It is a True Adventure, after all.
