Dude . . . Z6 Roadtec. You will not be let down. Tough enough for touring, round enough to corner with.
They even come with little elephants in the tread!! How cool is that? I've worn the little buggers' trunks off on the left, but I'm barely scraping the trunk-lips on the right. Crappy vision in the TN hills, so I can see farther through a left-hander, and thus feel more comfy acting a fool.
This weekend, I'm scraping something.
You can do a mushroom patch form the inside, if you really have to. NEVER use a plug. NEVER. You rlife is worth more than the whole GD bike, don;t cheap out on a tire, it ain't worth it.
That said, I got a nail in my rear tire at about 300 miles. The shop patched it with a mushroom patch and a guy I know (really well :twisted: ) took the bike to 140 (indicated) without problems. He's a nut, and he used to tempt fate before he had a kid.
Most shops won't patch or plug, due to "liability," which is an ancient Navajo word that means, "not sell white man new tire today."
[EDIT: I buy from Ron Ayers, but I understand that Dennis Kirk will take any advertised price and beat it by a buck.]
