is always good for the soul, and when it's new tyres it's a special day indeed.
These are the Diablo Strada tyres from Pirelli. Sexy aren't they?! I've been tossing up whether or not to get some new tyres for the past couple of months. Selecting the right set of tyres has been making me put off the choice, but I finally decided to go with these Pirelli ones because of their performance. For my style of riding they offer me a great balance between wear and traction.
My first ride on them yesterday afternoon was so bloody enjoyable. Rolling around the street corners I could feel they provided me with perfect turn-in and lean. As I approached the home stretch I could feel that with a bit of heat in the tyres I could start scrubbing them in with a little more confidence. I just have to say "SWEET!"
