NEW TYRES? L O V E LY !

Motorcycle News (UK) - - GARAGE -

I’ve re­placed the OE Bridge­stone Bat­t­lax Ad­ven­ture rub­ber with Met­zeler’s Road­tec 01 (£260 mail or­der). The OE tyres had a hint of off-road abil­ity, but the new ones are road only. As a re­sult, the bike feels to­tally dif­fer­ent in cor­ners. It’s more nim­ble and lighter to steer, and I can crank it over with much more con­fi­dence from the extra grip. I even touched my peg down last week, which I didn’t think I’d be able to do when first getting on the bike as I think the V-strom’s pegs are quite high!
