Hello Pete, I ended up buying the Shinko 804 & 5 tyres for the Raglan Adventure ride. They have got plenty of great reviews. I had a fully loaded bike did approx 800km over the weekend including 200km through single tracks, farm roads, small revine crossing etc. So properly tested. They were great! On the road at speeds of 100-120kph they where stable and offered plenty of traction on the twisties. The road noise was not intrusive. I actually couldnt hear them. Also, they are reasonably priced at just under $400 for a set. Fitted to a Triumph tiger 800. Apparently they get great mileage too. From my little experience thus far, I would stick my neck out and recommend them.
