Ok the other day I thought I should be a little ahead ordering my next set of tyres, so I ordered a set of TKC80's at my local dealer, only to find that delivery date is 2. of september!!! Then I needed a backup tyre as my rear tyre only holds for a couple more weeks. So I asked if there was any Distanzias left in Norway. And YES there was one rear tyre and some fronts left. So I'm very happy at the moment, cause I'll have a new set of Distanzias fitted on my XTR on monday!

Yeah you try that, then report back with your findings. Let us know in particular if you manage to get more than 800 miles out of a rear Maxxis.

good luck

Im on an Avon Storm ST on the rear its done 1500 miles and still has 5mm of tread in the centre of the tyre and I feel very confident throwing the bike about in the dry I cant vouch for how hard you can ride it in the wet cos im not that brave in the rain but hey that keeps me the right way up!!!

I was in protyre bristol today and seen a set of Distanzia`s waiting to be fitted there so might be worth a ring to see if they have any left.
