Rear 2.8 & Front 2.5

I would normally go R2.8 & F2.2 but you may encounter potholes which is why F2.5 may be better. Rear you can push to 3 on tar with pillion and luggage.

(My rule of thumb is then to deduct 1 bar for going on dirt and another 0.5 bar or more if only sand.)

Plesier :thumleft:

Daar is natuurlik ook 'n ander opinie aangaande banddruk vir teer vs grond. Manne soos Jan Staal hou voor dat jy nie noodwendig moet afblaas tydens avontuur ritte nie. Ek stem saam solank jy dan 'n 50/50 band op het wat ewe veel greep bied op teer as op grond. Die benadering help ook om smileys op die voorwiel te vermy.

Met die Anakee III sal ek egter wel afblaas vir grondpaaie so ry maar 'n klein pompie saam, jy weet nooit wat voorlę nie.
