Our first foray (that’s my mate on the Hornet, it’s the 919) didn’t end well for him in Malings Pass, when he was sliding down the other side of the hill. Road tyres (Pilot Roads) weren’t cutting it. The following year we did the likes of Nevis, and the TKC80s were available in 17s. That worked a lot better, but then he discovered west coast rain on knobblies wasn’t the same as road tyres 😀
