    Transalp
    now Avon Gripsters are no longer available I am considering replacing the rear with a Mitas MC24 ( I have them on the TA600) or E-08 (cheaper than MC24 & bit more road orientated). I only use the TA650 on the road or gravel but many local roads are poorly surfaced and often quite muddy. There...
  2. Metzeler Tourance NEXT?

    Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    Has anyone fitted the latest version of the Tourance NEXT and if so how do they rate them? I need to replace my old normal Tourance rear on the TA600 and since the bike never goes off road thought I would opt for a road tyre and it seems to come out better than the Anakee 3 in tests and...
  3. Larger front disc for TA 600 - which one to get??

    Transalp
    Does anyone know what larger brake discs can be fitted to a TA600? I know you need the caliper adapter, but I am not sure what models of Honda have the bigger disc you can use. I know the Honda "hawk"/NTV 650 is ok, what about the Pan European? Or the Deauville?
