    Well it lasted  - 7500 Touring  Miles of mainly 2 up fully loaded riding.
    Completely gone around the centre !
    What an excellent Tyre ,  and so confidence inspiring in all weathers.
    So like for like swap - 106 from M&P with new account 10% discount .

    Highly recommended for a 90% Road / 10% off road Tyre.

    Plenty of miles left in the matching front yet   :300:

    I've just put some on so am happy to hear positive things. Grip is surprisingly good on gravel/hard pack though I've found they hold damp loamy soil at low speed but shed it once you get up to about 25mph. Not used them in mud yet but I try to avoid it anyway.

    Had four rears and three fronts. The last front lasted 27,000 Kms. If they are available they are the only tyres I buy and everybody I have recommended them to feels the same way. 
    I typically get 13,000-15,000km from the rears.

    Note to self though - don't let the centre run so low next time . The carcass once the tread is low is very thin &  I suspect then easy to puncture !

    Great to hear such positive praise for these tyres  :0461:

    Yes  - great tyres have these on my Tiger XCA and in the wet and dry are confidence inspiring  - can't think i would change when they need replacing.  :047:
