Hey, my gf and me did the first 1/5th of the southern part of the Norwegian TET this spring. We were quite inexperienced at the time, kinda like how you describe yourself. I would not have done the TET on street tires. My gf had some Michelin AC 10 knobbies (I think) on her WR250R, and I was running a Mitas E10 front and E09 rear on my DR650. Those tires were very good, especially in the sandy and muddy areas. I have no experience with 50/50 tires, but next time I will hopefully be able to test some, to feel the difference. We still had to work to get through some of the areas, it would definitely not have been fun on street tires. Especially if it rains, which you should be prepared for, it can get quite interesting. At least for someone with little experience. If I were you, I'd change tires to at least 50/50 tires, and save the street tires until you get back home, or sell them.TriumphantTiger wrote: ↑Tue Jul 09, 2019 12:08 pmI am also very interested in this, especially if the southern part of the trail can actually be done on street tyres (and I'm not asking if professional riders could do it, but if your average Joe could).
I will be doing the complete southern part in mid August and currently have the dilemma that my street tyres, with which I bought the bike in January, are still in excellent condition, and I would prefer not to waste a perfectly good set of tyres.
My experience level is limited, some limited off-road (gravel roads and some single trails), with one off-road training coming up this weekend.
@edgar, maybe I will run in to you on the trail :)

If this link works, this was one of the more demanding parts we did. And some of the most fun I ever had on or off a motorcycle!
Anyway, good luck and enjoy, we loved the small part of the TET that we did. We got hooked on this kind of riding, and will definitely explore Europe through the TET next summer.
