  3. 23 inch tyres!! Arggghhhhhh

    It's such a shame that I might not consider a bike because of its 23 inch front tyre. Yes Bridgestone make a trail wing, but they are awful in the wet. Have I missed something? Does anyone make a sticky 23 inch!?

  5. Bridgestone BT45's just run in...

    Dominator / FMX
    Just back in from a 4 hour b-road ride on the new BT45's - the bike is transformed! Kicking myself for persevering with the awful Avon Distanzas for so long - the bike is now stable, copes with broken surfaces and has grip at last - a real pleasure to ride now! Can't speak for off-road riding...
  6. XL1000V Front wheel steering not in balance

    As i am driving along I decided to check if steering was in balance on my 2007 Vara, well it is not.

    Dominator / FMX
    BT45 tyre pressures Solution I cannot find the other thread which said BT45s should be run at 36 and 40, but need an opinion on my Dominator. Since switching to 36 and 40 psi on Schorsch, my BMW R65, I am very happy. But the PO has fitted BT45s to my 650 traillie. Now, the question is, do I...

  20. Bridgestone TW152 mileage?

    Hi What sort of mileage would you hope to get from these? Bridgestone TW152, clicky. I recently took my Alp in for a service and have a sneaking suspicion that the garage may have swapped the rear for an older one. Or I could just be being paranoid! ;)
