 Stewie's a bit er touchy about tight arses because it's so long since he had one, so sez Rebecca, that he can't remember what it's like to be able to contain himself.
 But it does give him the advantage of methane assist jet propulsion on his tiny and broken Triumph. 0 - 60 in about 15 seconds when the engine's not running  :028: .

 I've been using the Continental TrailAttack series on the 650 for several years and like them a lot. They're good in both the wet and the cold and wear well.  Probably not a lot to choose between the big name sport touring tires. They're all pretty good, so it comes down to price and availability. 100milesaway is right, for most of us any top of the line sport touring tire will give us more than we can use and outlast a sport tire

It is no longer broken but it is a bit wheezy and underpowered.
Maybe I should go back to a 650 V, but I'm not sure I could handle such a beast anymore.

I don't think you ever could.  That's why you had to move on to such bikes like the CB1000R and now this nonsense with the Triumph.  All to end up in a ditch...   :whistle:

BTW, you are all wrong.  90/10 adventure touring tires make the best sport-touring tires.  Deeper treads mean better water management and longer life w/o giving up grip or handling in the dry.  If you install a 150/70-17 rear, it will make the already sharp handling even sharper. 

Going back to my initial point - That's why Stewie needed to ride that monstrosity of a motorcycle with those ridiculously wide tires.  The Versys was just too good handling for him...   :008:

  All wrong :008: :008: .

  All right  :020: :020: .

 The Conti TrailAttacks fit your nomenclature. My English was never very good, Sir.
