Let's talk street riding tyres

Postby Spike_africa » Fri Apr 13, 2018 12:02 pm

I've had loads of Pilot Road 2, 3,4 on bikes. I wanted to try something different and maybe not as expensive. I've been looking at Continental Road Attack 3, Pirelli Angle GT,

What's your take? I honestly just don't like how the Pilot Road 5 look or I would.of just bought them lol.

Always loved the Michelin Pilot Power series but have been running Bridgestone S21s almost exclusively on all my bikes. Not a fan of the Pirelli Angels. Pirellis in general seem to go all at once. Recently tried the Dunlop Q3. That's another good tyre.

Depending on what and how you ride, I've used the Bridgestone T-30 and liked them pretty well. Pretty neutral, decent grip, but they are a sports-touring tyre. But on my 1290 I mostly commute and sport ride on the weekends. Also used the Metzeler Road Tec 01, also very nice, but a little more pricey.

I've been running Dunlop Roadsmart II's for a couple years now and love them.

Not a huge fan of the tread pattern on the Roadsmart III though.

Looking for a sport touring tyre with good mileage. That's why I like the idea of the Angle GT. Sticky, but good in all weather.

Metzeler M7RR, need no warm up time, plenty of grip in dry and wet, lovely tyre!

Second that, I love the PP's.... excellent in dry and wet and they lose grip very predictively.
Wear seems to be ok for me, looking at the current state I reckon I could do like 5 - 6k on a back tyre and probably double that on the front

Well I called a local shop and they had a screaming deal on Pierlli Angle GT tyres. So I got a front stand and a new set for the cost of a rear Pilot road 5 plus like $40. Great deal. I'll post how I like them once they are mounted and have some miles.

That sounds pretty cheap indeed, read about the Angel ST's and supposed to be a great set of tyres, looking forward to your experiences

Just ordered a set of Pirelli Diablo Rosso 3's to replace my worn Q3's.

Was looking at M7RR's as I use on my Supermoto and like them. The Rosso 3's are similar and newer from what I read.

Was looking at the angle GT's as well but I don't do a lot of miles a year or ride in the rain.

Full Akra exhaust and Akra tune (will be Dyno tuned soon), R&G tidy tail, Skidmarx screen, Dunlop Q3's, Renthal bars, [Motohooligan air box, secondary's, SAS plates, tank brackets, upper and lower sliders]; Lots more to come.
