Tyres
 
Hi to all, well ive gone and done it! treated myself to a drz sm and love it, but im used to a bike from 25 years ago and find the tyre wear unbelievable, now would it be possible to use a tyre with more mileage in it or would it be asking for trouble, if there is such an animal which is the best and what are the pros and cons?
thanks for any advise
Jim

Had a Super Blackbird that I used to run Bridgestone BT020's on the rear. They are a dual compound tyre (soft on the sides and harder in the middle) a good all round long distance touring tyre with predictable handling. I ran Metzler MEZ6 steel belted tyre on the front to rectify the (scary) head shake common with that model. Both made an excellent combination.
