Wow sounds like a fast tripp with long legs but you will be more experienced than me since you already been to Finland and Estonia.
Good luck to you and don't forget to post pictures on the forum.
I understand why you have that bike of yours full of hard boxes from Givi.
I have the same topbox as you.
Maybe I will see you driving by in 160km/h when you drive trough Sweden

Hi think you can find tire treads on the forum.
Im to unexperienced to give you any adwise.
Dunlop Roadsmart got good rating by motorcykelmags and also Michelin and Bridgestone have nice ones depending on conditions (rain, dry, high speed, gravel, etc.)
Hope you are fit and young at least in spirit, to make a long travel like that.
