    I have a 2015 Triumph Tiger XRX with Metzler Tourance on them.
    Not happy with them and want to try other tyres ONLY for road use.
    Any suggestion's on type of tyres and sizes.

    Cheers: Robbie.

    I had Michelin Road 6 on my 800 and thought they performed very well.

    Any of the above ... standard size for the rear but 110/80 radial front, not the factory 100/90 bias tyre. :028:
    Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

    After many years on Michelin boots I have Conti Trail Attack 3's on my Tiger 800 and had the 2's on my Explorer before that - really rate them and Conti do recommend their 110/80 Radial tyre for the front fitment on Tiger 900 which imho is far better than having a 100/90 x-ply on

    Tramlineing, does changing ONLY the front tyre take care of this ?

    Radial fronts do not seem to tram line the way cross plys do. I have never had any issues with a rear tyre tram lining.

    Have a look at Mitas Terraforce-r. Second set on my xrx lo been very happy with them. Try the .co.uk site. The guy is always very helpful

    Yup, used to be a notorious problem with cross plys years ago.
    No idea why Triumph fitted a bias belt narrow tyre to a road bike....
