Changed the front tyre on the Concours today. The standard Battleax only lasted 6,500kms - not too good really. As the rear is still looking pretty good I fitted an old Metzler that had come off the Bandit and I'm hoping it will at least last me until the rear is ready to be changed - that way I can by a matched pair.
I've also ordered the Givi top plate & mounting brackets so that I can use my V46 on the bike. 10-12 weeks delivery! Really hope it comes in before the Mini's Return. Will be good to have the extra versatility of the top box.
