Hi I
I'm in Malaysia at the moment and need a back tire, a dealer in KL can get me a trail wing in about a week, but a local guy near where i'm staying can get me a Duro tire, ive never heard of them so can anyone tell me a bit about them ie are they any good and how do they cope with the weight of luggage, any info please.

Hola Pete!!!

I know the Duro tires.

Wait for the Trail Wing!!!!!!!!

“Duro” means in Spanish …. “Hard”. But the tire is all the opposite, soft like a piece of butter in the sun….

Negrita is missing you here and asking when you will be back…
Take care
Saludos.
