    I'm off to the Black Sea and back with dad at the end of June. I ride a triumph tiger 1050 which has an aftermarket pipe, no cat, no SAI and an aftermarket tune. Do I need to swap the tune back to something less rorty to avoid any risk of pinging or is fuel quality pretty good across the board over that way? Bike runs fine on UK 95 RON.

    Looking around there seem to be plenty of folks heading that way in the summer. see you there.

    Fuel no problem, plenty of Lukoil stations offering 95 RON.

    Yea I found 95 RON all the way through Ukraine, although my stock DRZ400 would probably eat what ever.

    Haven't had an issue finding it in Russia yet, although I have yet to get into the rural areas. So it could vary
