I rode in rain on stock tires. No issues...but...I weight 270 +gear, so rider who is 100-150 for example with no side cases and gear might have totally different experience with the same tires...Good to hear they did the job in the rain. The factory tyres where a bit slippery in the cold rain
Latest update, just changed our tires ( both X300s) to Mitas E07 tires, the tires are for both tube and tubeless rims.I've just changed the tires on our two X300's from the factory ones to Continental Attack 2 tires.
Increased the sizes from 100 to 110 and 130 to 140, I hope to get a ride this weekend.
I like the look of those. They look perfect for the roads I ride.I went with a set of Avon Trailriders. Rear is a radial with a harder compound in the center. Side grip is outstanding, as is wet weather performance-better than any tire I’ve run in 40 yrs. Smooth and quiet operation. Zero wandering going over rain grooves on the interstate. Rear end breaks away a little easier than stock on dirt roads, which I consider a plus. Hooks up well otherwise. I haven’t done off-roading. My local Triumph dealer ordered them in and mounted/balanced them a few days later. We’ll see how they last. I expect longer than stock, which I got 7500 miles out of.
