Knobbie's will help heaps with braking, which will give you confidence to go faster between corners. After a while you find your corner speed will go up. I have come now. I wanted to ride faster which i did. Worked out the ground is to hard & i am to old/soft. I am back to putting around the bush like a turtle.
Thanks, Pete. The braking thing makes sense and that sounds good. I am hoping for faster corner speed too cos that is where I suffer greatly....

Yeah I have a couple of knobbies on the way.

Going to try just putting one on the front at first to see how that affects handling... I have been "advised" that my current dual sport tyre gives better traction on the back on gravel roads.

Got a Pirelli Scorpion Rally on the way... should be fun :)
For the rear, I found a Mefo Stone Master... chunky as....
