Hi, just changed bikes recently and new one (secondhand) came with the above tyre's fitted, never ever used Maxxis before and also never seen bike tyres with tread type markings on the edge/shoulder (over first 1" to 1 1/2"), just wondering if anyone has tried these and if so how they found them for grip etc?

DRZ 400 S - replacement tyres

Hello. I own a DRZ 400 S and live in the UK. Could anyone advise replacement tyres to fit for 70 % road commute 30 % weekend forest trail use. Bridgstone have advised me that the Trail Wing tyre TW 41 80-100-21 is no longer available. I would prefer a similar style of tyre (not too aggressive on the knobblies) and hopefully the same manufacturer for the rear (currently TW 42 120-90-18) Many thanksSteve

Ducati Panigale Tyre Size

My Panigale is due a new set of boots. Whilst the 200 section supercorsa is great in the dry, it is a bit scary at high speed in the wet. My only choice of other tyres are 190 section. Is this a safe/wise move ? Anyone had any experience of changing section size ?

cbr1000f whhels

i have a 86 cbr1000fh and have been offered a pair of wheels from a 91 cbr1000f. i realise it will been some serious tinkering, utilizing the later models rear shock, front sprocket cover with speedo drive plus other minor question is, is there any real advantage to fitting the later wheels or is it going to be more of a cosmetic exercise rather than a performance booster. will they really help the bikes handling?cheers
