  • Ride's the reason, destination the excuse.
But how will you get of those muddy campsites?
The last two campsites I’ve had to walk beside the bike to get off the field so figure the 80/20 tyres aren’t very good in mud, so why not go for a full road touring tyre. I had a front wheel slide Sunday when lent well over, I blame the knobbly edge of the tyre (I know I was going too fast for the bend but IMHO the tyre should have held it better).
Presently she has a Battlewing on the rear (that’ll soon need replacing) and what might be the original Tourance tyre on the front (If that’s what Triumph fitted).

Any reason why I shouldn’t?
Maybe because you are also considering other road tires like Dunlop Roadsmart or Michelin Pilot Road ?

I can’t find a Michlen Pilot Road made in 19” front wheel size?
I’ve looked at the Dunlop site and couldn’t find the right sizes there either so gave up on Dunlop, What are suitable Dunlop road tyres for a cast wheel Girly?

For whatever reason they are not on .com, but .eu shows them nicely. Probably something likewise with Michelin.

Thanks Dutch, it’s strange they don’t list them on the site I was looking on.  I can use the code number along with tyre sizes to get a quote. Cheers :thumbsup

You missed the Michelin Pilot Road. If you go to http://motorradreifen.de/reifensuche.php and select the Triumph -> 955 -> Tiger (gussrad) (cast wheel) you get a really good list.

Ditto that :thumbsup

Also, no mention of Avon Azaro or Storm? both road orientated, Storm is rear only but can run with Azaro front. Sometimes its best just to go with a tyre that you like look of.
Tiger 1200 XRt in red, the best colour
