Choosing tyres, what a nightmare. No real price differences and you cant try before you buy. What are the general thoughts? Prices so far are...

Mitas E09 Front 40 Rear 60
Dunlop D606 Front 55 Rear - Cant Find
Pirelli MT21 Front 57 Rear - Cant Find
TKC 80's Front 62 Rear 73
Metzeler Karoo Front 56 Rear 66
Michelin T63's Front 51 Rear 70

I have stock rims so perhaps this is why I cant find a rear Pirelli or Dunlop for a 130/80 - 17 rim. I know . Going to Morocco later in the year so need something a bit dual purpose.

Not sure I fancy mixing up the manufacturer but I know some riders don't find it that much of an issue?

Im tempted for the T63's. This is what OTR used on their evolution bike.

Has anyone used these before?
