I am in really interested in the change it makes to stability/handling.

I do not want to loose anything when cornering, taking into account getting the pegs down is quite common for me.
Is the profile of the tyre any less, as I have to slow down for speed bumps as it is, else the rim takes a knock.

Where did you get the 260 from? Price etc?

Before and after pics would be great!

Is this the "DX" section? Am I allowed to post here?
But of course :)

Kieron, his Gallery pretty well covers it.

It would be nice to see the rear of a 240 and a 260 together though.

My main thing is handling. The 240 is a bit lively on wet roundabouts, and if a 260 is any flatter then it will be a mare.

VMaxer I have a mate with a VMax with a 300 on the back.
I'll try and sort a photo.

Off to the gallery!

Never considered the 260 wet though, and I tend to use mine in all weathers...
