Short post for you guys today, but with the season approaching, I’m trying to post more articles and videos in regards to what’s going on. When I bought my 2002 V-Strom last year I had to replace the front tire. After reading lots of reviews I ended up going with the Shinko E-705. Well after a bit of riding, I have grown fond of that tire. And now that my rear tire is in need of replacing I have opted to replace it with another 705. The tire currently on it is a Metzler Tourance which served me well. Not sure what kind of mileage ill get with the Shinko but time will tell. Would be great to get the whole 2017 season. Below is a short video in regards to the tire and where I purchased it from.
