Exclamation Vs1400 - s83

Let's start with tires / tyres.
Correct VS1400 pressures. Correct S83 pressures.
Standard Tire / Tyre pressure spec:
Front: 200 kpa (29 psi)
Rear: 200 kpa(29 psi)
If you ar riding dual or with a load, only the rear goes up to 225 kps (33 psi)
If the tyres are the exact same size as orig or even differ very slightly, I'd go with these pressures.

Standard tyre sizes are 110/90-19 (front, 170/80-15 (rear)
I am still at a loss what alternate make to put on my S83, the standard Bridgestones are slightly "iffy" in the rain.

Would like to slap on some AVON's but they are'nt available in South Africa, the guys that has the distr agreement decided not to import them anymore. AND Avon UK, still has not come back to me when I enquired about becoming a distributor. I'll even take from the states, where is the factory though?

Michelin, awesome tyres. If they made ANKEE's in my S83 size, I swear I would ride with Anakee's. They are really really good wet/dry tyres with very good milage. That dual compound setup is amazing.

Who wants to make a suggestion? I ride every day, 3000km (1875 mi) per month.
