Hello from East Sussex too (Seaford)!!

Just joined to forum, so still finding my way around.

I've owned more bikes that had tubed tyres than tubeless, and if I'm honest, worrying about punctures is the last thing I think about when I leave home. Your friends are right, a puncture in a tubeless wheel is less likely to leave you stranded but I think it would have to be a fairly catastrophic puncture with a tubed tyre to have you weaving all over the road.

I don't envy your commute, as I did Eastbourne to London for almost 10 years on various bikes, and none of them were as comfy as the new AT.

I've had my new CRF AT since January, and love it. I've owned a plethora of the old AT's in the past, and this new bike is a very worth successor.

Oh, and to answer another one of your questions about tyres.

I've read very good reports of the OE Dunlops fitted to the new AT, so when you get your bike, they will be an excellent tyre to benchmark against anything you use afterwards. I had TKC80 knobbliest fitted to my AT before I picked it up, so I can't give you an opinion on the Dunlops.

In the past I have used budget Mitas E-07's on Africa Twins and they really lasted well, but were occasionally jittery on wet roads.
