Oh ! Right. I'm not sure what the right response is. Its probably 'Up yours' if it's not let me know when we see each other at Maz's

Read the thread again Dave, bloke asks about tyres, various people suggest tyres including you and me, you suggest Pirelli super corsa's, I agree they are grippy tyres unless its wet and that you wouldn't know that (supported by you saying you don't like getting your bike dirty) and you called me a knob, at which point I called you a mard twat.
I do know they are shit in the wet because I've done two track days on them in the pissing rain.

I'm not arsed what your response is because its just words and I will have been called worse and because I'm not a mard twat, I might be a twat though.

Tyres are a very personal choice, depending on your riding style , bike set up , weather ,temperature and even you mood ,If we look at the GP grid ,not even these riders at the top of their game can agree on a tyre compound for the race, and that’s even team mates on “same bike and similar set up “ so we as mere mortals have got a snowballs chance in hell on agreeing on which is best .

PR 3's are the best out there for an X1 and you'll get 10K out of a rear.

Heavy tyre for touring. Grand Tour I would think.
