Picos Tour & Piston Rally

Postby Vincent.vanGinneke » Thu Sep 13, 2018 10:59 pm

Both '45NG and '43 W/NG now ready for the Picos.
Fitted TT100's to both and gave them a good check over, what can possibly go wrong. 8-)
During the AOMCC rally I had the change to 'test' these new TT100's.
I can recommend these tires, maybe a tad to modern for a '45 bike but they vastly improved the roadholding

Only mishap on two bikes in ± 1500Km : 1 loose floatbowl on the NG and one bolt+nut missing from sadlle support on the W/NG.
Pretty good for 2 over 70 year old bikes !

Dunlop TT100 are THE choice! we've outcornered a few Laverda's and BMW's on them....ofcourse they spat by on the straights...
