tyre advice please.
Ive had an 1150GS for years and last year also bought a Victory Kingpin Tour. Ace bike, but the Dunlop tyres are SH**te now that theyre getting worn.
Sizes are 130/70 front and 180/55 rear, I think the same as some big Harleys. Hope some of you touring hog riders can advise me on which tyres to get next.
Cheers

Avon Venoms are the tyres of choice for most tourer/bagger owners I believe. I'm still on my rock hard HD tyres at present but looking to change soon.

Agree with stumpy, had Venoms fitted a few months ago to my Softail Heritage, have to up the pressures a bit, not as stable on the motorways as the Dunlops, dont look very traditional, but much better grip wet and dry.

Round and black sell them on ebay for around 135 a set.
