:18orange:

I am getting ready to start another season on my 03 1800. Again I need new tire's. Bike will be two years old 2/07/05. This is my 3rd set bike has 28k. I check pressure and such often. Has anyone come across a better tire for handeling and milage or possible pressure change?Also when towing trailer should pressure be adjusted

Thanks

Great pumpkin

Getting 28k miles out of two sets of tyres is really good going. You don't say what tyres you used but if mileage is your priority then I'd say buy more of the same. For grip it seems Metzelers are best in the wet, but I've seen posts about them falling apart under hard riding. The newer Bridgestones are a lot better than the old ones, but I'm keen to know if the new Dunlop EIII's will be any better. Dunlops fitted to Goldwings traditionally don't grip all that well in the wet.

Never a truer word spoken. As the tyre maker that Honda chose to shoe the Goldwings from the very start, Dunlop had over 25 years to get it right for the Goldwing and in my opinion they have let us and Honda down.
