Hey Dave, are you riding to Italy and if so when? Which bike will you be fitting the Maxxis ST tyres to?  :038:

 Yes Richard  will doing the trip  my Suzuki , Le shuttle is booked for the 25th May . The tyres on my bike at the moment are about
 half worn and to good to throw away thats the reason for fitting the new tyres when I come back would think that my present tyres will be  past  their best by then.

 I Have  021  tyres on my present bike and to be honest I dont feel any difference between 021 tyres and PR4 tyres that I had on my previous bike, both of them feel sure footed the 021 tyres are on a bike with a lot more grunt and feel OK to me,
 I looked at the pricing of tyres the T30 is twice the price of 021 tyres that have lasted for over 10,000 miles on some bikes.
 Some one is going to say its not worth taking chances with tyres, well that exactly what I say, thats why I am very fussy about my tyres and put my trust in tyres that have been out a few years tried and tested rather than buy very expensive new tyres that may or may not be better, without any proof either way.  When replacing my tyres I will be using 021 tyres unless of course I see positive proof other wise.

....Have just purchased a pair of the latest Maxxis ST tyres ready to fit, the casings on all of the Maxxis tyres that I have used have had a very substantule and  ridgid lay up on the casing far stiffer than any other tyres that I have used, I purchased them with idea of fitting them after my trip to Italy and just before my MOT is due...

Dave, am I right that you are on one of your elaborate 'wind ups'?!  :008:
First MOT on a motorcycle is due at 3 years old and this year is 2017.
Or did you end up with a old (older than 2015) model Suzuki?

 Very good review, The bike that I am interested in is a different model its one of the new 2015 Susuki  GSX 1250 the one with a revised engine,lighting ,suspension and full fairing, Givi  luggage and revised fuel injection, It possibly looks like the same type of bike as the old bandit.But with a lot of changes that will more than likely make it a better all round bike.

....I purchased my GSX 1250 in January when there was plenty of salt on the road and used it right through the winter , and  4000 miles later the bike looks pristine as if its just come out of the factory....

 No Richard no wind up my bike was registered in late July 2014 it was a almost unused dealer  pre reg that I was told was the later 2015 model I purchased it in January 2016, I was looking for one of these bikes and this one was offered to me at such a good price it seemed to good to miss. The age of bike is sometimes difficult to gauge the MK1 biffer I believe went out of production in 2010 and was still being sold as new in 2014 ,the MK2 biffer stopped being made in I think 2012 and was still recently being sold as new bikes.
 The other thing is that the Maxxis ST tyre have only been available in the UK for a few months and I was only recently made aware of them and so couldent make any previous mention of them. As I have said I have used Maxxis tyres before and having noticed the latest ST tyre on looking into them and gather any info I could get they had a lot of appeal to me, Although I havent fitted the tyres yet from what I can see they look like they will live up to expectations.
