    I have just put Road 5's on my RS for a trip to France for the MotoGP.
    £240 (ride in ride out).

    My brother came by yesterday with a new conti sport attack fitted to his GSX S1000, same size tire as mine by the way. When looking at the tire compared to my bike wth the supercorsa’s my tire looked like a lower profile. We then took measurements which showed that his tire was over a half an inch higher profile. Interesting, as you would think the supercorsa’s would have a higher profile.

    Well I've just popped my back wheel out tonight after a trip round Scotland as the tyres done it's day. 3500miles out of a Pilot Power rear, no complaints from me and a new one in the garage waiting to go on tomorrow.
    £145 a pair delivered.

    I usually go for a tyre that’s not a current model from one of the main brands, one that’s been superceded by a newer model perhaps.
    I’ve currently got Dunlop Qualifiers on the Triumph which were one of the top sports tyres a few years ago. They’re great and certainly up to the workout I can give them these days, plus they were £125 a pair online.
    Just put a pair of the mark 2 Qualifiers on my Beemer too, another bargain at £145 delivered.
    All good tyres with multi compounds so they should last ok, just not the latest offerings that go for 2+ times the price. :grinning:

    I used the Pilot Power 2CTs on my bikes for years and found them great for everything including track days - excellent value too !
