    Good Day all,

    I am looking at ire choices for my 2019 Thruxton R.

    I like to ride aggressively mountain roads and track time,

    The thruxton will see both, but mostly mountain road time.

    So what is everyone running? Tubeless options? Outex?

    anyone running a 170 rear?

    If 160 is the best way to go, there seem to be limited choices for sticky rubber: Q5, Q5s. Pirelli rosso IV, Michelin pilot 5,

    Anyway looking for suggestions, I treat this like a sportbike essentially so i want grip on road and a tire that can no fall on its face at the track if pushed.

    I will also Love to hear peoples suspension settings. I am 185lbs with all my gear on. I feel my settings are really close, though the bike feels a little unsettled when hitting bumps whilst leaning through a turn, settles out quickly but have had better setups that dont to this.

    Well thank you all for any insights, I love this bike its beautiful
