Austria 690 smc Trip - Tyre Talk

Post by Grimetime » Sat Mar 18, 2017 11:49 am

Good Afternoon,

So i've spent moist of the morning ordering and researching kit for a trip to Austria that me and my friend will be doing in June but seemed to have come to a bit of a halt with tyre choice. Needing something hard wearing enough to do 4000 miles but something good enough to have some fun on the infamous Swiss twisties, Experiences anyone?

Depends what bikes your on & also it's down to personal choice .
Iv been to Austria quite a few times as it's one of my favourite places along with Switzerland & as I ride a Varadero I swear by metzerler Tourances as my tyre of choice .
I even had a rear tyre fitted while in Austria and it worked out cheaper than having it fitted in the UK.

Enjoy your trip what ever tyre's you choose ☺

Search for pebble35 on ktm forum and I think he has been on here. He has done some long distance on your choice, helpful chap too. :)
