Since 2015, I,ve had an Iron, stage three Screaming Eagle kit etc, love the bike, back tyre is shit, every year we go around Tassi, best part for us is the trip from Struan to Hobart, so from Strahan you head to Queenstown , then up this bloody big slippery mountain, last year it rained the night before, going up the mountain was a night mare, no grip a little and I mean a little throttle and I was going sidewise, my tyres are crap, I mean they are ok in the dry but, anyway, can some one recommend a decent tyre for the rear, at the moment rear is Mechlin, were going back to tassi one last time, (im ill, say its my swan song, and fuck it im only 67) so you guys whot do you recommend
Thanks guys , will now go on the search for Pirelli night dragon gts, or even the avons,
Done about 1000 k's on my Cobras and I now have confidence in the wet. Unless I give it full throttle it doesn't slip whereas the Commander 2 would light them up at just over 1/4 throttle.
Yeah mate take it easy in the wet. The commander 2 was a slight improvement over the stock but not by much. The Avon Cobras are a big improvement and although I'm still careful in the wet I can at least do the speed limit and take corners without worrying about the back letting go. Bad new is you probably got at least 10K more to go for the back and 20-30K for the front. so best you ride a lot in the dry or do some really big burnouts...lol
