Tires

Hello folks,

what tires do you use on your bike? Mine was equipped with Continental TKC80's (twinduro's). I found them too knobby for hard road use, so I changed them after 300 km for TKC70's. Which are called "twinduro" too. However their name, today I did some 10 km off-road and, they are far too slippery. Is there something like the best of both worlds?

Regards
Bart

Hey Bart

I'm waiting for the new Michelin Anakee Wild (which is also quite offroad situated but should be better on road and have longer road life than the TKC80).

I will install Mitas E-07. They aren't avaible for tube tires but I will fit tubeless on my tube wheels. Should work. I always ran Mitas E-07 on my previous R1200GS. They are good and road but also quite good offroad. As long as it doesn't get to muddy. They are quite cheap to!

Do you have any information when will Michelin release Anakee Wild in rear size?

I'v got this reply from Michelin UK about Anakee Wild:

Quote:
Thanks for your interest in the new Anakee Wild tyres.

The good news is that we are planning to make the rear 18" size you need for the new CRF, however it is not going to be available until the summer of next year, as things stand.

Sorry it's not better news,
So ride slowly and preserve your tyres until then

Recommendation for tires?

Hi everyone,

I've read some forums and can't really decide what are the best tires for my use.
I know everyone has their own opinion on tires, but as an adventure rider newbie, I will basically rely in opinions of others before I test it out. I plan to take the AT as my first light off road ride lessons, and slowly learn how to do it properly.

Before my current AT purchase, I have only ridden on road tires. Riding mostly B roads up and down mountains on naked bikes like Sr500, Street Triple and Triumph Bonneviles etc.

What is the best option for mostly road use, but with ability to take it light off road, woods, gravel, etc?

I read Contiential TKC 70 seems to be pretty good? And Michelin Anakee Wild (which are not released yet for the AT).
Is there really a Do It All tire?

The OEM tires doesn't really promote confidence, since I had a near off already on light mud. They're ok on the road, bit tricky in even wet paved road.

Any opinion would be helpful.
Thanks
Rich.
