Has anyone put street tires on their bike? Find that up to sixty, the tire whine is tolerable. After that they are a bit intrusive to say the least. Btw other bike is a Ural so when I say intrusive noise, trust me馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ

The stock tires are one of my biggest complaints about the SCR. Noise was an issue, but my air filter and exhaust now drowns them out! :laugh: I don鈥檛 find them confidence-inspiring at all either tho, even on something as mild as a slow roundabout. I had the same issue on the Triumph Scrambler, as they were OEM issue on that too. I changed those for Metezler Tourances, and the difference was night and day, whilst retaining a similar look. Metezler do the Tourance Next now too, which I think are OEM on some of the BMW GSs, so may look at those as an option this time. Still researching at the moment.

Ive heard good things about the Pirelli MT60. Can get them with awesome white letters too! That'll be my next set..

Hmmmm....not considered them before. Look pretty similar to the Tourances, TBF.

Yes they're similar. Apparently the MT60s aren't great longevity wise but theyre soft and sticky and great in the rain.

I havent read much positive about the Trailwings tho...

Looking to put on some new tires very soon. Love the look of most ADV tires, but I honestly never ride off road or on dirt roads, so I'm leaning towards something that'll have great mileage for commuting and do well in the random thunderstorm I have to power through occasionally.

Yeah, I feel exactly the same - if I鈥檝e gone off-road, then I鈥檓 probably lost!

I know from experience the Metezler Tourances have a similar look to the OEM meats, but perform on road much better. I think the newer edition Tourance Nexts look a little more like a regular road tire to me.
