  5. Which road tyres for XL700?

    Transalp
    The Anakee 2s on my XL700 are nearing the end of their life.

As I now have no need for a dual purpose tyre, what are the best road tyres I could use?

    About a year and a half ago I got one of those cheap battery chargers from lidl when they had their bike stuff on sale, and I've been using it to keep the battery on my 125 and the @T topped up while I haven't been using them. When I let my little 125 battery run right down once, I noticed it...
