New Tyres, the PR's are gone.....

Post  Chook on Fri 25 Nov 2016, 6:28 pm

A local tyre retailer had Roadsmart 2's on special "from 375 pair", the 120's+ 180's end up fitted/balance for $420, needed new front pads so they put them in at the same time for the cost of the pads.
Hopefully I get a chance to go for a ride tomorrow and see what they're like, if they're as good as Jimcoleman says I'm sure I'll be happy.

I had to drop the bike off to work and pick up a work car to pack ready for Monday morning, I turned the 10.5km ride into a nearly 70km ride with a little detour into the Adelaide Hills to scrub in the new Dunlops, 1st impressions are good

I'd have a bloody flat centre by the time I got as far East as you Wink

BTW, when you do the Perth trip, you need to allow a days riding with me (and paul, rayman etc) through the Adelaide Hills

Just checked in on a couple of reviews of the Dunlops Chook. One suggested you need to keep a closer eye on tyre pressure as according to the reviewer they lost pressure more readily. The other review said the side walls were stronger than many making them better for heavier bikes (so good for Bandits!). Good riding!

I'm also a huge RS2 fan. And call the tyre pressure quote bullshit.

Planning 10 days to get there, so should be able to.
