I'm a big fan of Conti Road Attack 3s
Not tried them on a Tiger but on my big KTM they are faultless wet or dry

A french magazine test found the conti the best, with the R 01 second and Road 5 fourth.

The Anakee adventure I have now are good, I expect at least 12'000Km but I don't like that they
are very prone to lean fast, I prefer counter weighing the handelbar when needed,

I think these will be my next pair, or the trail attack 3 they might have more thread, do the road
give you good mileage !?
On my Honda my TA2 made 18'000Km they only flatened quite a bit !

I get about 4-5K miles out of a rear 7 from a front but it's a powerful bike and I often ride it hard.

So other tires on the KTM would give less from your experience !?

Hard to say but I destroyed (down to canvas) a set of Bridgestones in 2 weeks and 2.5 K miles in Spain a couple of years ago.
The Contis did a similar trip last year and they still had plenty left after it

Well most Bridgestones are total crap, not surprising, thanks for the feedback !

Ahhh buddy, you stated it yourself it's my opinion, so why get nasty, you're entitled to a different
opinion, it's fine by me, however your attitude here is not !

It's my opinion of your opinion, so it's just as valid as your opinion on Bridgestone tyres. Try and out-logic that.
