I agree with Hotdog, Heidenau tyres work great for me.
I've got some K47's fitted to a scooter and I've been surprised how good they are. They look a bit like tractor tyres, but handle really well.

Re: Tyre Choices

Michelin S1's are awful. Never known a tyre like it for tracking every line in the road. Avoid them like the plague. About the only thing you can say for them is that they last well.

Re: Legshield beading

I like Scootopia, but their leg shield beading is awful, to be honest. I think the channel is cut completely wrong. I had a couple of sets and couldn't get them to fit at all.

Re: Legshield beading

To be honest I haven't had much luck finding any here in the UK either. Closest I've got was some cheap Indian beading, funnily enough. It's just the channels that are the problem. They don't fit the lip.

Re: Crikey its quiet in here ..iet in here...in here... here..

To be honest I always thought this would happen. I said as much when they started SULK. It's just disposable froth. I'm not sure anybody actually reads it. It's just about hits. Not that I'm saying that's true for Scooterotica as such, but digital media is just designed to be dipped into and as long...

Re: BLOA dead?

Morning. So someone was saying there's not much going on here at the moment so here's something to chat about. Anybody know what's going on with the BLOA, I'm banned from the Facebook page and only have the LCGB side of the story so far. Any of those who supported GF had a change of heart, especial...

Dead man walking. It was probably always doomed.

Dell'orto

So what exactly is going on with Dell'orto? You couldn't get the PHBL 25 for a while. Now I hear that they are discontinuing them altogether. Is it just the 25, or are they dropping the PHBL, PHBH range completely? Because I now see that YSN are making copies of the 25.

Re: CornwallScooterCentre Break-in

By all accounts the T5 seemed to have been left in someone's drive. You'd think an organised break in would be better planned. Makes me wonder if it was scooterists. They obviously knew they had some value, but they don't seem to have had much idea how to get rid of them. Stuff has been found then?...
