    The rear now has a puncture so time to decide. Looks like a trip to the Burt is on in February next year, so maybe the RA3 will be the way to go.
    February ??? I will have killed a couple of rears by then .

    On a Bandit 650? How many km do they last?

    I went for the M7RR - there are some reasonable deals on sets. If we have another summer like last year, the rear could be pretty much toast by February.

    I'll watch for a set of decent, used sport-touring tyres if the trip becomes definite.

    Restorace out west have Angel GT sets in 180 and 190 for $430 plus fitting.

    I killed my first Road Attack in 3,001 ks .. after that I didn't look ..

    I was commuting to work on a high country back country road - 55ks one way gate to gate - did it in 28 minutes .. If you work that out then it is 110ks per day - so 3001 ks is just under 30 days going to work ..

    Love the tyre though - still use them
