From a Beemer to the AT

So, I did a thread awhile ago asking about moving from a BMW GS1200 to the AT. Well, I Made the move! Today is day #1. Getting used to the DCT, but liking it so far.

First thing, I'd like to do tires for a little more Offroad. Also thinking that tubeless would be a good choice.

Here are a couple of pics:

Tubeless is non-trivial, lots of threads on it here.
What rubber do you have on it at the moment?

Have the same bike and put on the TKC 80 (Tube type). Really like them. Surprisingly good on the road and, of course, much improved off road.

Even a 50/50 tire makes a huge difference if you're going to explore on gravel or dirt.

Rikki Rocket from Poison? Are you like Neil Peart from Rush and ride your bike from one concert venue to another?

I like that you threw up the "Irons". Also like the Misfits looking skull decal on the beak. Nice.
