Our Sales Team’s Peter is an intrepid two-wheel adventurer with decades of experience. He and couple of experienced enduro mates recently undertook a grueling 4000 kms in the saddle. Each chose a different set of tyres from our best-selling adventure brands and put them to the test. How did they fare? Read on…
Three off-road bikes were trailered roughly 1600km on tar to Port Augusta Shoreline Caravan Park. They were all single-cylinder 650-700cc modified trail bikes. The route consisted of mostly 70 percent red, rocky dirt roads, 20 percent tar, plus ten percent rock trail.
The loop commenced at Port Augusta taking in two days of private trail riding in the Flinders Ranges, up the Oodnadatta Track and along the Old Ghan Rail Heritage Trail. Next was Copley, Anna Creek, William, Mount Dare, Uluru, returning to Mount Dare, Oodnadatta, then Coober Pedy, Marree and back to Port Augusta.
All six tyres were purchased from your adventure specialist City Coast Motorcycles in Keira St, Wollongong; the Dunlop D606, Motoz Tractionator RallZ and Pirelli MT21 Rallycross. Our tyres come with complimentary fitting and balancing by our Service Centre.
1800 kms – Oonadatta
All bikes did the same ride on the same day and therefore experienced identical conditions. Tyre pressures ranged around 26 to 28 PSI.
3500 kms – Anna Creek
This was a hardcore course. The Motoz rear tyre slicked up quickly in wet red clay on the way to Mount Dare, while later the Pirelli showed rock damage on its knobs. Peter said that, “despite being the cheapest, the Dunlop held up quite well.”
4000 kms – Port Augusta
“The best hospitality was at Mount Dare Hotel, by far. We visited it on the way up and on the way back,” said Peter.
