Triumph Tiger 900

Currently using Metzeler Tourance on a 1999 Triumph Tiger 900 but wondering if there might be an alternative. Looking for something hardwearing, suitable for lots of road miles - touring and general use.

Anyone got any ideas/suggestions?

ME 880 but not cheap,you may be struggling for rear size.So it looks like a sports/tourer dual compound with around 5,000miles.

The ME880 is more of a big custom/cruiser tyre,

probably best to have a look at the different tyre makers websites, usually have a section to put the bike details in and get tyres suggested, usually a few alternatives from pretty off road biased types like Continental TKC80 up to sports touring tyres in trail bike sizes, Avon Distanzias, Bridgestone BattleWings, Michelin Anakees, are some of the big trailie tyres that come to mind, and as mentioned above some of the fully road biased tyres from differing makers. Funnily enough you might find some of the Trail tyres lasting well because of their deeper tread pattern, but actually being reasonably sticky due to the tread blocks moving about a bit, for a little while I rode around on a Yam Supertenere with Avon Gripsters which did grip well but weren't actually a recommended fitment, due to speed rating probably. You should find some thing suitable :smile
