Waiting to buy Continental TKC70's
« on: January 15, 2015, 01:38:55 pm »
Just spoke to Durnian from Autocycle centre, they are the importers/ distributors of Continental tyres in South Africa

He said that these tyres will not be imported to SA.

He promised me an email confirming it.

So we are stuck with

Anakee III
Next
Karoo 3
TKC80

Please Mitas bring me a 50/50 tyre?

Guess she has the Continental Trail Attack ii and not the TKC70's

Manager from above mentioned shop gave me a call, salesman made a mistake. TKC70's will be available in the next 2 months if factory have stock.

Ordered a set of Pirelli Scorpion Rally's from PistonPete
Well priced at under 4k a set.

Will order a set for my HP2 as well!

Those back tyres look like those the mad Icelanders use to storm up the sides of volcanoes!  :laughing4:
Pretty impressive.
I started biking as an under achiever and it went downhill from there...

@NK. - het jy navorsing gedoen? Hoe vergelyk hulle met TKC 80 en die Karoo 3? Wat was oorwegend vir jou om die rally te kies?

Was opsoek ns goeie 50/50 bande vir ń oorwegend grond trip oor 10 dae/4500km in Mei. TKC80  was ook opsie, maar die Pirellis is heelwat goedkoper. Goeie reviews op Advrider gelees en besluit om die roete te gaan. Meeste ouens kry goeie kilos op hulle.

Volgens PistonPete is dit selfde klas band as die TKC80
