Avon Distanzia tyres
I bought a new set of Avon Distanzia's last week for my 3AJ Tenere. I got the 'T' rated ones rather than the 'H' (which are suited to heavier bikes/loads). The Distanzia replaces the Gripster.
These tyres are fantastic on the road, offer plenty of grip and feel. They don't break away suddenly like my old Metzler Enduros, and are confience-inspiring in the wet.
Having said all that I expect they'd be pretty crap in sand or mud due to the tread pattern. However, Ted Simon has some fitted to his GS and says they copped a pounding on rocky, potholed roads and he didn't have a problem.
That's the news.
