  3. Welcome to the forum mate.

    Can't answer your question but I'm sure someone will soon.
  4. Welcome to NR..

    What other bikes are you eyeing??
  5. Welcome mate :cool:
  6. Welcome to NR from Adelaide.
  7. Welcome to NR, if you're looking at something more gravel/dirt orientated any of the adventure bike style tyres may be worth checking out, any bike dealer should be able to show you that range. Possibly you may be better off looking at the adventure bikes instead of a pure road bike, plenty to choose from now eg BMW F700/800GS range, Suzuki V strom, Kawasaki Versys, Ducati Multistrada or Scrambler etc. Good luck with your choice.
  8. gday Sav61Sav61 and welcome to NR!

  10. Welcome welcome Sav61Sav61
    Many happy memories on the bike and the web. Hope you find your love soon! Good luck!
  11. I think you can get Conti Trail Attack 2s in those sizes. Possibly also Metzler Tourance and Pirelli Scorpion Trail?
    I've also seen full nobbies on an MT-09 but I don't know what they were.
  12. Welcome to the Forum. Continental have a range for tyres from 80%road, 20% off road, going through to 20% Road, 80% off road.
  13. Vertical is good - Horizontal is bad - Somewhere in between the two is best!

    Welcome aboard.
