    First ride in weeks on the red baron due to the horrible weather and spending time on the new Triumph, tyres will need doing in the spring, any recommendations for a 95% road use tyre, about £200-230ish ?

    Does anyone get hacked off with this fitting charge for motorcycle tyres? I took the wheel off and they want £15 fitting cost, so if someone goes to a tyre centre and wants 4 of the cheapest remoulds they get fitted for free because its a car. Its a bum deal.
