What tyres
« on: November 15, 2020, 04:37:19 PM »
HEllo boys and girls,  been away for a while just enjoying the bike soz. Got a 13 plate roadie  so got cast wheels running on PR5'S , planning a 4-6 week trip to Norway next year or year after, depending on the travel situation.  The pr5's are great but gonna guess not the best off the beaten track.so my question is what would you suggest?? not talking hard enduro here, but off the beaten track , was thinking Mitas e07 + any suggestions opions greatly appreciated.
It better to be 10 minutes late in this life, than 10 minutes early for the next

I did Norway on TKC70, absolutely brilliant tires never had any slides even in very wet conditions,
they are also fine off-road for what Norway offers.

This seems like a pretty comprehensive review of 80/20 and 50/50 tyres.

Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Have these right now and they are very good handling wise, long lasting (4mm left @8500Km) work great
in cold temperatures too, but I don't think I'd tackle proper off-road with these, to me they are 90/10.

Wow, my K60's get torn to shreds. I've been using them the last 6 years so I guess I should try something new and see if I'm missing out.

Have been running the Anakee for two years now.
Nice running, good gripping tire even in the cold/wet, that lasts very long, but......they are soooo noisy and a real pain to listen to on long runs.
So they will be replaced with the PR5s that I ran before which I liked very much.
Actually did a Norway trip on the PR5s in the end of September and they gripped very nicely all the way down a very cold wet Trollstigen :152:

do a search on the forum and elsewhere for Dunlop Trailmax Mission - been running them myself and IMO the closest to a perfect 50/50 available at the moment
When you talk, you only repeat what you already know - when you listen, you learn something new
