My R4s are fantastic allround; wet, dry, feel and wear but it seems the R5s are in another league above. Ready for a change soon so I'll be trying the 5s unless the 4s are a way lot cheaper I'll just go for those again. Everybody on my bike model forum/FB group (tiger 1050) is raving about the 5s.They're the standard Bridgestones that came on the bike and the SX guys don't rate them at all so I was going to change them at some stage anyway. Thinking of going for the Michelin Road 5s as they get good reviews, anyone any experience of them?
If you have a car you could just take the loose wheel instead of riding the bike.Managed to get a set ordered with A1 Tyres so fingers crossed it will hold enough pressure for me to get it up the A1 on Saturday morning. I plugged it but it lost a good bit of pressure overnight so hopefully I make it up there without any drama, the mate has a van if I'm stuck
Aaron's a good lad he'll not recommend you a crap tyre.Took it up to A1 this afternoon and Aaron fixed the puncture no hassle. I'll do some research and decide whether the Road 5s are the way to go, he also recommended the Pirelli GT2 and Metzeler have a new tyre out that is supposed to be good.
i stuck a set of road 5s on the dorsoduro last year , iv never had 5k miles outa a rear tyre in my life and they are still going well. id say another 2k il get outa them, iv thrown everything bar the kitchen sink at them and never once had they caused any problems, right to the point of dragging pegs about so il be going with another set no problems, well worth the money.Took it up to A1 this afternoon and Aaron fixed the puncture no hassle.

Have someone advertise it on Facebook on your behalf. It really is just about the best place to advertise anything these days. A lot of people don’t deviate from Facebook for anything else these days, so it has the biggest audience you can hope to target.Where would people look to buy a bike? Looking to put one up for sale so looking people's preferences on where they look to buy.
Thinking gumtree & autotrader.
Had thought maybe motorcycle news also. Don't have bakebook so it's not an option.
