Good day all,
I have never been 100% happy with the IRC tyres on my C800. The 1200 mile recent French trip convinced me they are total rubbish. With two up, plus luggage the handling on bends and slow manoeuvring left much to be desired. Although the bike has done just 11K since new and there was 4mm on the front and 2.5 on the rear I decided to change them.
The dealer I use and much respect for his knowledge and all the good advice he has given me in the past recommended Bridgestone Exedra Max a tyre specifically developed for tourers. Not cheap just under £200.00 for fitting and balancing.
The difference in handling is just unbelievable, leans in to the bends very smoothly and much easer for slow balancing.
In comparison I think the ICR tyre had highish side wall and a flatish running surface. The Bridgestone is very round and I think that is what makes the difference
All that is left to do is see how long they last!!!!
