My Triumph has Pirelli Scorpion Trail Tyres. I have found them to be rather disconcerting on gravel. They very good on Road and heat up fairly quickly. As a result I ve been looking for a slightly more aggressive Tyre to provide better levels of offroad traction without losing to much road grip. The Shinko E705 was my choice recommended by Fortnine. However there are quite a few reviews that say it is really bad in the wet? Also a few reviews with road performance issues. Eion it would be great if you could do an update on how you finding them! Will really appreciate that.
