New Tyres

Well with the bike on 15561 miles my rear tyre is shot again, I blame those fantastic twisty Spainish Roads. The middle 1/3 of the tyre is pretty much bald, the front is also heavily worn. What is most pleasing is that the tyre having had such abuse hasn’t squared off at all.

I again have been very happy with this set of Michelin Road Pilot 2's with their dual compound, that I have opted to have them again. They have lasted for around just less than 6000 miles this time, but considering the roads we have been on, I think that is dam good.

I got the tyres fitted at my home by bike tyre services again for £240 this time, Michelin have increased the price of the tyre by £20 over last time.
