  3. Tubeless Tourance?

    Africa Twin
    Need some new rubber, currently running Tourance with tubes Rang around for some quotes and am being told that you can only get the 90/90/21 for tubed application now, and the 140/80/17 needs to be tubeless? I'm confused - can I still run a tube in a tubeless rear Tourance? Thanks.............Sam

  19. Rear tyre rubbish in wet

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, I'm running a Mitas E-08 rear tyre, relatively new. However in the wet the tyre looses traction under moderate acceleration and feels very unstable on roundabouts. Has anyone experienced this? Is there a 'best' tyre for on-road commuting for wet weather? Many thanks, Sam.
