After talking to Simon Pavey, and trying a pair ourselves, we're so convinced that they're good value for 70/30 off/on road use that we're gonna stock them at Touratech.

Thanks for the replies.
So i would say my use is 80% road 20% gravel etc.
Which tyre from the range would work best?

I have e09 on rear and karoo on front on my africa twin the rear has done 1100 miles so far with 9mm left i have been using offroad and thats why i have gone for this set up, they do more road biased tyres , saying that they are ok at 70/80 cruising and no weaves at 100 private road officer B)

heidenau k60 scout rear and pirelle mt21 front..covers all eventualities amnd long lasting too.
agree with russ on the k60 rear but would go with something like a metzler karoo on the front - i got a horrible wear pattern on my mt21 front where the two side by side knobs wore under braking but the single knob didn't, leaving a horrible juddery slow speed ride...

My front worn in exactly the same way with mt21, only managed about 1200 mile

Thanks for the Link, i like the look of the E-08's.

I'm not in a major rush so i'll do like Tramp said and have a look at the 1,000 or so bikes heading down my way next weekend..

Thanks everyone for your input :)
