Don’t miss our sports tyre special
Sports tyres. Just the thing for sunny trackdays when the Tarmac is sizzling - but they’re lousy in the wet, right? Wrong. In the latest issue of MCN, out November 27 we’ve got an examination of the latest sports tyres and why the only limiting factor is your bottle.
We’ve also got a comprehensive round-up of the tyres we’ve tried and tested on our long-term fleet. On top-flight sports bikes, giant trailies and laid-back cruisers our long-term riders have covered tens of thousands of miles and on page 17 we reveal their findings.
