T120 Tyre replacement
I suppose we are getting some experiences from owners having had to change tyres on their T120 and I would like to know if some recommendations come to mind.
I'm not happy with the Pirelli Phantoms, given that I ride the bike to work, wether it rains or not, and I find them to be pretty bad on wet roads. Also they follow the imperfections of the road pretty easily. And damn are they numerous in Belgium. On the other hand they do look good, they grip well on dry roads and they seem to last pretty long.
My dealer is guiding me towards some Bridgestone BT45 because they are pretty cheap and seem to have a good overall record. But I'm afraid I may put my standards too high, and maybe I should look at the Avon Storm's that Triumph recommend. I do a lot of highway riding and maybe they will hold longer before getting squared ?
Any experience with them ? Any tyres recommended ? (I fondly remember my Michelin PR4 on my previous bikes, and kinda regret they dont make the right size for the T120).
