Tyres.
Hi, just sold my Blackbird after having her for 14 yrs during which time I've used in the main, Avon Storms 3D.. Loved em, dry or wet.

But what tyres do you old hands recommend for the K1200GT ?

Thanks in advance..

I used Michelin PR4 GT's for a while on my K1300GT. I'm running PR5 GT's now.

17K front and rear? You must not use the brakes or throttle all that much... :D
Yeah, try to follow me :cool:. California superbike school and Bondurant graduate. Front and rear. I didn't believe it either until I did the tire change and checked the maintenance log.

Which K1200GT are you talking about? The first Generation -'03-05 or the newer K12 ;06-08?
I've had a K1300GT w/PR4's. They were OK. I now have (again) an older '04 K1200GT that
came with an old set of Metzeler Z6's. I changed them out for some Pirelli Angel GT 2's.
Wow, what a difference. Those Pirelli's make the old girl stand up and do tricks. Stable,sporty,
smooth and comfy. I have a set of Michilen Road 5's on my bagger and I don't know if I made the
right decision. The road 5's are excellent tires but those Pirelli's are special. I also have a set
on my K1300S. Holy s**t , they made me a believer.
