Bridgestone BT0-23's

That's what was on there when I got it and they've performed well in the wet, dry & twistys and I'm getting 10,000+ miles from a tyre. Just replaced the rear after a 1,000 mile sortie around South Wales, it still had 2 mm of tread on it after 10,500 miles.

Metzlers Z8s - a full set plus the last one was just a rear.

I'm considering renewing them (both) whilst over-wintering the bike (and servicing time).

The interacts may not last too long but feel awesome when new (as does any new rubber), I like the way the work and they aren't expensive (last time anyway).

You know if you want to find "the best tyre" for the biffer it will come after the search for the best oil !!  (don't).
Only do it right - no bodging please.   Keeper of the failed stator list.   John.

Over 7 years, PR2,s (Good in the wet, but scalloped on the front tyre very easily; PR3s (one set), better; two sets of PR4s, backs of confidence n the wet, and fitted a third set before handing over to my son. Got a BMW F800GT fitted with new tyres (can't remember, but think they were Metzlers). They scared me silly in the wet and got PR4s, after only a couple of thousand miles. Will get the latest Michelin offers when I need them!

I have just changed from Bridgestone 30 Evo's and got some Michelin PR4's and only done 25 miles on them but they seemed good.Nothing wrong with the Bridgestones did what they were supposed to do and quite good on a spirited breakfast run but just fancied a change.I got the PR4's for 190 so not bad on the price.

I currently have a pair of road pilot 5s on my bike.Only fitted a few months ago on a great introductory price offer at our local bike shop,they seem just as good as the 4s that were on there before but have different technology for the centre of the tyre and the sides.They just give me total confidence in the wet where the Bridgestones didn't.

had road pilot 3s then was recommended Dunlop which I hated , I found them horrible , felt everything , only had them on a few weeks and went to  road pilot 4s now have road pilot 5s , the 5s do feel different tho but very comfortable
