Yea the ride was the important thing as I could of got it delivered to my door for 10 and I spent twice that on fuel.

The ride down was very nice until we hit Bristol so we came back up the M5 as far as Gloucester then through the Cotswolds home. Didn't notice the weight of the cider too much especially when on the move.

Went away with some mates before we all get locked down. 800+ Km including a trip up the Licola Valley.



on the way back you get this view



BTW. Not super rapt in the rear TKC70. I will not be putting a front on I'll stick with the Trailrider and when the rear wears will probably go back to the Trailrider on the rear as well.

I had a late get out then a 85 mile bimble around the Peak District, shouldn't have bothered, it was heaving, never known it so busy. Matlock Bath was rammed on both sides, on the pavement on the river side as well as the caf side, people riding up & down looking a space, there wasn't room to park a bike. Elsewhere was cars, eg Bakewell, Bamford, Hathersage, Hope & Castleton were crowded with car parks full & roads in & out the villages cluttered with cars. Groups of hikers & dog walkers. Townies have gone crazy, like metallic snakes into the countryside.
Current bikes Tiger800 XRx, Tiger Sport 1050, Ariel FH 650, Yam Serow 225.

K1W1 Is that the Avon Trailrider you are referring to, if so how are they on gravel roads.  I currently have Karoo 3s on but want to change back to a less knobby type more road focused tyre that can tackle light off roading.

Cheers

Yes Avon Trailrider. Had a couple of fronts and about 4 rears. The front on the bike at the moment has just clocked 31,000km the rears get in the 12-15,000km range depending on what sort of riding it does.
I love them on sealed road they stick and they are very predictable. On gravel roads I have never had a problem keeping in mind that they imo at least are closer to 90/10 tyres than they are to 80/20. Done plenty of 100kph gravel roads with confidence. Never had an issue on wet or slippery gravel but I have also not tried them in really slippery clay or anything like that.
