I can see how the different conditions we expose our tyre's too, affect the wear, and how what works for my riding style may not work for others.
There must be some general rules of thumb.
For example, I would like to know what is the toughest tyre, particularly in the centre, for long, continious, high speed touring.
As Ive have bored everyone with before,, Im soon to head off on a approx 16000 klm round trip of Oz (in 28 sleeps time, not that Im counting)
The country roads here can be abrasive, the temp warm if not hot in the north, and the speeds consistantly 140-160 klm/hr. For all of the trip I will have luggage and for part of the trip I will have my partner and more luggage, so the bike will be loaded.
I have budgetted 2 rears and 1 front.
The bike goes in for it's 10000 klms service next week, and some new sandshoes, soooo
Can anyone give me the tips for good long distance loaded tyres and tyre pressure's.
Thanks folks in advance.
Just a quick note of congratulations for all the viewers here. I dont post often (usually when I need something), but I read this site all the time, and to all the regular posters.... thanks heaps, you guys have given me bags of info on my bike, and sort of feel like long distance, like minded buddies.
