    Eishhh…best tyre replacement to consider might be a RH wrist brace!! 8?)

    Hahaha, doesn’t sound very fun, but does sound cheaper…

    Just put an E-07+ Dakar on the rear but could only get a plain old E-07 front (not even Dakar version).

    It’ll interesting to see if the Dakar goes longer than the standard plus. I’m managed 5.5 and 6.5k out of my last E-07+ rears.

    I got 4,800k out of a Tractionator GPS…

    Front E-07 Dakars have gone 19.5 and 16.5k’s – although the last one would probably have gone a lot more (I reckon I would have got a warrant on it) but changing due to a little event next month.

    And, the WR is loving it’s Motoz Desert H/T’s 🙂

    After a hunt around the area and a good char re. tyre makes and patterns, I purchased a set of Shinko 705’s for my CB500X. So far I’ve covered around 3600km on them in a variety of conditions, on tarmac and gravel, and am well satisfied. They’re certainly a big improvement on Honda’s standard fit.

    The bike required a slightly narrower fit than standard on the rear tyre, but this has probably been to the good on gravel / offroad.
