    Default Tyre Choice

    I currently run my 2008 650 GS on Avon Distanzia tyres. I've just noticed the front tyre has cracks in the sidewall and between the tread blocks (despite it having passed its MOT just a month ago). Looking for a replacement I can find very few, if any Distanzia tyres, have they been discontinued? What tyre is every one else using? I only ever use the bike on road so off road performance is not a consideration. I'll probably change both as I prefer to run with a matched pair.
