When you are riding off road on a trail bike, a big discussion point is what should you put in your tyres.
There is no definitive answer and it will depend on many factors including the terrain you usually ride, your budget and of course, whatever your mates use and say is the best thing since sliced bread!
So in an attempt to help you decide I have gathered as much knowledge as I can about the 3 main options and pulled it all together so you can decide for yourself.
So, you are new to touring in Europe and not sure what you need to take on your motorcycle adventure or are just the really forgetful sort!
What you need is a checklist to make sure you've got everything you need....hopefully this list will help you make your European motorcycle tour an adventure to remember for all the right reasons!
How to stay safe and enjoy your motorbiking holiday in France
So you've booked your stay at 3Bs Biking and have planned your trip. You're excited to be riding in foreign lands.
