I just changed my Distanza for an Avon Gripster, and i do like it, although i do feel a bit more road noise/vibration i do feel like there is more Grip, but to be fsir the Distanza was pretty well bald (but only in the middle)
But yes i wouls recomend them, also better on green lanes, i also got mine thru Tyre shopper.
Hope that helps
Mike :-D

Yep you're the same as my 54 GS isn't it so you're on a 130/80T/17 rear.

Let me know how you get on, I still feel the Tourance have the edge over the Distanzia in terms of grip (in the dry) but they didn't last too long. Maybe I was having too much fun on them!
