Re: very interesting RR

Re: Dual Sport Tyres for a Versys 650

There is loads of choice for the rear if you go for a 150/70/17 which fits fine, it is a bit taller so alters the gearing,ground clearance etc Besides the major brands there is also brands like Mitas (e07) and heidenau k60 etc. The front being a 17 is more problematic but as far as I know the TKC80 ...

Re: Tyre size question

Re: RTW in dribs and drabs, our off-road Ride Report!

I know the Versys pretty well as|I have one in the UK, it had just been recently swerviced, chain etc and ran very very well. I think it had done over 50k miles when I had it but the engine was as sweet as a nut but the suspension was still too harsh/firm. Yes, Tenerife has some great roads, had six...

They also have a specified off road tourin...

Re: under armour underwear - does it work?

I use UA heatgear when it warms up and have found it cooler than Aldi/Lidl and merino base layers etc. They pack up very small so it is no problem taking them along with your normal base layers.
