It's that time of year again, out with the old and in with the new, tyres that is.  For my faithful GSXR its actually been more like three years as I had been seduced by the easy riding nature of our BMW F650 and the GSXR has been left in the garage on too many occasions.

The last tyres fitted were Pirelli Diablo Strada's which are becoming hard to source as they are out of production.  They were a good match for the Suzuki for longer runs and didn't complain when thrashed (within the speed limit of course) around the mountain roads near our Costa Blanca base.

Over the years Michelin, Metzeler and Pirelli have been my brands of choice  and it was the Pirelli Diablo that caught my eye again, the standard version not the harder Strada used previously.  The next decision was whether to remove the wheels at home as I usually do or take the bike in to a shop.  The second option goes against the grain somewhat and my North Yorkshire upbringing but in this instance would get the job done in time for the bikes upcoming ITV.

Thanks to Mateo at Mille Motos Benissa for the great price and service.

Unfortunately I don't have an after shot of the bike as I was to eager to take her for a spin so the one above is before.
