4,000 miles in...................
« on: July 13, 2017, 06:19:04 PM »
Took a while to find this forum, relying on the 'international' forum to date. :034:

Took delivery of a 'Euro-3' XR in February, and after running up 900 miles on it in UK, removed the Bridgestone T30 tyres and fitted Metz Roadtec-01 for an upcoming French trip (to ensure the rear 'went the distance')

Now done over 4,000 miles, and love the bike.   Bought to replace an R1200GSA which I had enjoyed for around 50,000 miles (in SC and TC guises) -and am very pleased with the change.

Handles great, wears panniers well, has acceptable tank-range, and goes like a stabbed-rat. :047:

Mods carried out:

Radiator guards
Fender extender
Givi Quick-release pannier frames
Givi Outback Dolomiti panniers
Givi E36 top box
Scottoiler Electronic oiler
Engine Bars (can't remember make)
MRA smoked screen with aerofoil.
Akra end can

After doing 3k+ miles on the Roadtec-01 - I have to say they have performed and worn brilliantly.    Still to evaluate what mileage I might expect from them, but if it is close to 4,500 miles......... I'll be very impressed.
