Tassie delight

Mick - January 15, 2021

Fitted the road 5 to my 1200rt for a trip to Tassie from Perth, What can I say, from the Nullarbor to hammering around Tassie these beauties don’t let you down, experienced all types f weather and without doubt these are the best all rounders I have ever had. Done 14000k’s and probably due for a new set but still handling beautifully.
