Tourance tire on front of 2012 DL650
On Thursday eve I had a new front tire installed at about 32,000 km I had the rock on until that and installed a Tourance non-exp.
I'm very familiar with the Tourance as tht is what I had been using in my 2006. I really was surprised at the difference in the feel vs the stock tire.. Much different turn-in and the bike felt like it wants to just stay on what ever line I had set. I don't recall such a huge difference on my 2006 when I made a similar change.
Any idea why there would be such a dramatic difference in feel?
