Ok, got my new 705s on today. First impressions- they look bloody great. I think the chunky tread pattern gives the bike a much more rugged look. Only done about 20kms on them so far but they feel very very different to my old Trailwings. Much noisier and a fair bit of vibration which I imagine is down to aforementioned tread pattern. Seemed to grip well though and I didn't think the noise or vibration was unbearable. They'll just take a bit of getting used to instead of my super quiet tw's!

I will hopefully get them scrubbed in properly over the weekend!
