Pirelli MT60. Standard tyre grips well but on a 185kg bike with 85hp and a generally gentle lady rider it is close to being stuffed after 6500km. Not a long life proposition at all so I would not recomend them.

There is no scalloping though just very quick even wear.

Ok...regular squirting out of corners etc might have well changed the wear pattern on an "Ugg-boot" like that. And cooked it even earlier.
Looks good on a "bared-bum" bike like that though...part of the cosmetics

TKC80 next?

TKC 70 probably. I think they make an 18" front. Will get something more road oriented there is no need for anything any more agressive than I use on the Tiger.


Sharing a ferry with 370 of my best friends.

It is like the Touratech catalogue only more fun to look at the pictures.
