Re: Tyre Choices

Ouch! Glad to hear you lived to fight another day. Must admit I've run Conti Twist tyres and always thought they were a good compromise between grip and wear. They seem to have lasted well enough in any case. The trouble is though that they can change the source of a tyres manufacture sometimes, so...

Re: Tyre Choices

Bad news with regards the blowout and twisted frame. But at least your still here and hopefully not too hurt. Am sure you will sort the scooter. very true has given me 2nd thoughts about motorways tbh as at 70mph you have no chance and neither does the vehicle behind you to stop to avoid you lying ...

Re: TSR Evo Tail can support

I feel your pain.... maybe that’s the way forward. Incidentally, I contacted Darrel and he only sells the modified pipes complete which isn’t want I want as I have the pipe already.
