By the way, for now, I am just a Distanzia user. I won't be "converted" until they impress me which I hope they will do.

As for the famous comment from Johnny Rea about his tyres when he used to race for HRC Honda

"There black and round and stick to the ground"

im sure you will be all right with the Distanzias

I have just tested the tyres for 3 hours and I have to say they are the best tyres I have ever had on the XT.

Let me first say I was VERY reluctant to buy these tyres. I was not impressed by their look and I had serious doubts they could be compared to the exellent sport tyres I had had before. If I had had to bet I would have said I would no like them. In fact, I did buy them because of a sort of game or bet between Captmoto and me.

I love the confidence transmitted by the front tyre. It is like riding on rails or on a road made of velcro. In fact, it felt strange at the beginning and I still have a strange feeling when turning at very low speeds. The result is that the front tyre sticks so well on the road that it seems nothing can make it slide

So you can consider me converted now lol
