Actually pictures of tire are not necessary. I put an 805 on the rear and it seems fine. Rode a fair amount of rain through Arizona and Colorado this weekend and they felt fine.
the 805 rear is taller than the 705 and the mileage remains to be seen. But it looks very macho and ADV and all that.
The 805 rolls into corners better than the 705. Feels more planted.
I passed a BMW 1200 2 up in the mountain curves but he shot passed me in the straights and disappeared into the future after a bit. That's the way BMW's are great in the straights!

Have you raised your front fender? Search for problems with 804 rubbing a hole in the front fender...

Guys up the hill on sport bikes complain about the wear and poor mileage of the sticky tires.
1000-1500 miles and several hundred dollars and they are only a bit faster than me on my 5K 100 dollar tires.
Doh!
But they have that track ready bike!
I don't treat public thoroughfares as race tracks.
