    Your Favourite Tyres?

    I haven't tried many tires, but I'm quite happy with my current choice. Metzeler M7 RR (120f / 190r)

    No Grom Love

    I know youre looking in the 125cc range but the 300cc class is growing with many nice bikes. I saw a video of the new BMW g310r that's a really cool little bike for commutinformation.
