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.
