M7rr are what il fit next. I’m used to 2000 miles max from sports bikes
Here is a pic of the front S21. Not quite all the way to the edge, the Angel GTs get to the edge on the front easier than M7RR or the S21s
The M7RR are really good but they do turn in very fast.
I like fast tip in. Used to panigales. They all wear to the edge on the rear tho??
Yes they do.
The standard tyre is fairly easy to get to the edge. I’ve changed tomDiablo Rosso IIIs and you’ll see from the picture that the ‘tread’ goes a lot further round the tyre.
I’m getting close to the edge on the rear, but there’s a little bit to go yet! I think I’ll forget about the front though!
That’s a nice wheel. The scorpions seem really easy to get to the edge.
I've gone off M7RRs. Got through many pairs on various bikes and liked them but I've had them let go without warning. I've switched to Conti sport Attack 3s (and Conti Road Attack 3s for my adventure bike). Outright grip is no different to the Metzelers but they communicate far better, you feel every slip long before it happens and the front is more stable and planted and sends masses of feedback.
The front doesn't tip in quite as quickly as the M7s though it's not far behind and the ride isn't as plush but the Contis talk to you in a way the Metzelers don't.
well I decided that my pair of Road 5s had done, just under 5 thousand miles, they were squared off at the back and the front was badly stepped and the bike handled like a pig so I wasn't going any further on them even though they still had some life left before the wear bars. They do wear in pairs though.
A new set at FWR in Kennington and with £30 cash back from Michelin seemed the right time to get a new set of Road 5s.
I just got back from a trip around the US west, and I put 9200 miles on my Dunlop Roadsmart 3s. I changed them out for another set of 3s, since I had to have the bike serviced anyway, but they had enough tread to exceed 10,000 miles if I'd wanted to. That is by far the most mileage I've gotten out of tires on a Multi, and I've tried Angel GTs, PR3s and PR4s, and Conti Roads. I'll be curious to see if the next set of Roadsmart 3s match that mileage.
That is impressive mileage. How much of that were they squared off?
They weren't squared off hardly at all, which was great. Probably because 85% of the miles were all on curvy mountain roads. Here in Illinois, they generally get squared off very quickly, but this set was only in Illinois for a few hundred miles.
Ha! First time in my life I've been called a Drama Queen
