Trials tyres

In preparation for a forthcoming trial I've fitted a pair of MT43s. These are fully road-legal trials-pattern tyres in a relatively soft compound.

The front was straight forward but the rear tyre was a bit tricky. For some reason, which could be due to the 3.00x18 rim, it was very difficult to get the bead into the central dip to permit the rest of the bead to be levered over. There's clearnace for the tyres between the front mudguard and the rear shock splashguard, but no space for mud.
