    Thats why i put up the tyre, although the strips have been low for a while, landy can tell you i like corners.

    It is a maxxis rear, pet brought them for me, but they've only lasted 7000 miles so i won't be getting them again Unless i've put up the wrong pic. Let me look.


    Wrong pic. I''ll find the right one, I really should stop multi tasking and look at what i do.

    looks soooo similar to a bt021!

    7000miles and you're complaining?! i didnt get that out of anything on 33bhp!

    get pilot road 2's, they're going really cheap if you look around. seem to have a faster steering profile than the 3 which has made the CBF even lazier/slow to steer

    I changed it to the right pic...

    I was gonna ask which two you were going to tell me to get.

    I normally get 9000 out of a bridgestone set.

    thats pretty impressive. bt023 would be the latest offering from bridgestone..

    could try the new maxxis diamonds?

    if it was my bike i'd see how cheap a set of PR2's can be had for against the cost of the new PR3. not much in it performance wise i dont think

    Thats what i'm looking into. Doesn't help i'm still broke. FWR have the 2's for £209 for the pair.. But i ride like a girl so i'm allowed to get mileage out of my tyres.

    last time i got Maxxis Supermaxx Touring for £225, but i was really not confident in hte wet, they kept skipping out doing gentle bends and given i use them all weather lack of faith isn't good.



    Oh landy rob tried running away from me too... he didn't get much further than you.

    Why is it so much? :zomg:
    lots of bikes go walkies in London, so certain postcodes (inc mine) will need a garage for realistic quotes.
    also high mileage, and insurance prices are generally on the rise.

    thats months old, seems to be an isolated case, cba to read it again but i think the diagnosis was over inflation.

    its easy to do yourself, you've only got 2 carbs!

    But i've no idea what i'm doing or the tools

    I'm in a really can't be arsed mood at the moment, i can't even be bothered to clean it or do the easy servicing bits and pet is currently to busy to fit me in so i can't flutter my eyelashes at him.

    she won't survive that journey.... when i take her to parents i'll be avoiding police hang outs its that bad. its tempting when i do want to ride, to go take daddies bike and leave her until i find motivation, his has got a (my) new tyre on it, and has done 1000miles since i last serviced it.
