Anyone tried these on the LC, at the moment I do more road, just wondering how they compare to Anakees and Metzlers

Judging by the available sizes, they are aimed at the K25, K50 & K51 BMW's?

Available from Craigs (Parow) and Trac-Mac (Bellville), and cheaper than the other brands!

Fantastic tyres these :thumleft:

Confidence inspiring grip on the road in all conditions. It will especially boost your confidence when the road is wet....it provides a sense of security. If you're gonna stick to the road most of the time, these and the Pirelli Scorpion Trails are the way to go in my opinion.

Looks like they will be for all the GS series, F650GS (twin) to LC.

Thanks.  Nada for the 800 then.  I was sure I saw a 21 in one of the websites, but can find it now.  Must have been old eyes.  I wonder if they will extend the range?  Then again, a 21 is seen to be more for off-road use and this is clearly a more on-road tire.

You can mix & match with another 21" I guess
