I am pretty happy with them but getting a bit sick of fitting new tyres every year.

New tyres every year? If only…
Bought my 1090R in August, replaced the rear in September, replaced both in November (front still has life), now about to need a 4th rear in January… The rear about to die might see 3000km, a record for a rear so far.

TKC80 – butter, Anakee Wild, slightly less buttery but not double the life of an 80 Michelin claims, now going with a Tractionator Adventure, see what that’s like.
