The "Eagle" Has Landed
2wheeltours said:I know guys that do choose the 180 on a liter bike, but I preffered the 190 on my old 929 myself. It's personal preferrence I guess.
Funny... now that I have tried both a 180/55 and a 190/50, I would stick with the 180/55.
It was more predictable for me, even at extreme lean angles, I could usually catch a slide or potential low side in time to save it.
With the 190/50, I have the front end sliding out on me at lean angles. I am still working on my suspension settings - either have to raise the rear a bit to compensate for the loss of 5 millimetres or so, or soften the front end or lower it. Not sure yet.
I am also going to try a 190/55 - as soon as I can spare the change for it.
