Firstly an appology. I am currently mid-way through a tour of Wales on the bike with patchy internet coverage. Searching the forum is proving a nightmare so have to ask a question that has probabyly been asked a hundred times already. Picked up my 2014 1200 touring lasf week. Love it and an now riding around wales in the storms, rain and snow for a week. All was going well until I set off from my b&b this morning to find a flat rear. Found someone locally who could do bikes but turned out he did not have the 55mm socket for the wheel nut, nobody locally had one he could borrow and I declined to let him use his stilsons! With a bit of washingup liquid spray, we found the hole and I "fixed" it with some sticky string. So far been ok all day. The bike came with angel gt fitted. The front is about 50% gone, the rear is quite badly squared and now has a bodged puncture repair. So finally we get to my question... In this state, would you go for a new angel gt on the rear and keep the front as is or go for a pair of less expensive but usually decent tyres like bt-023 and get a pair for not much more than a single angel. What is the recommended tyre these days? And any recommended fitters in the vacinity of Brecon? Im a fairly steady rider, not a knee down addict. I ride in most weathers and will be carrying some luggage and the occasional pillion. Used to have bt-023 on my last bike and they were fine. Also, any recommendations for a little compressor for roadside repairs in the future?
