Welcome aboard!

You might get away with a single pair of Anakee A3's for that trip, from what I hear of the mileage people are getting with that tire. However, it will limit your dirt road riding.

My Shinko 804/805's are at 6,500 KMs currently and I suspect the back will go another 4,000. The front will probably make it out to 15-20.

Two wheelz for realz!
