Re-fitting tires / swapping rubbers?
Was up at Smart Riding Adventures a few weekends ago riding the 2019 850GS and 1250GS offroad (dirt roads, dirt & sand trails, easy single track) and I appear to have pick up some sort of virus that wants me to take my 2016 R1200GS off pavement. Weird. So I have some tires on order**.
That said, my Metzeler Roadtec 01s (Metzeler fanboi here) still have some useable life in them.
Please excuse the ignorant question but, if I swap my Metzelers out for some offroad worthy rubber, is it safe to put them back on again later? Does removing them mangle them at all? My long distance touring buddies aren't on off road capable bikes (well, you *can* take a Road Glide Ultra off road I suppose) so I could see me putting them back on for such a trip (or just keep the offroad tires and find some side roads for myself).
**Anlas Capra X ... never heard of them before but the reviews seem pretty good, and my dealer has them on for $100 each.
Had to be me. Someone else might have gotten it wrong.
