Pirelli Angel ST's

Really good tyres in dry and wet and cheap compared to some sets.

10,000+    :005:
Someone isn't trying or they were well shot.


By way of an update (if anyone is still asking); my stead is currently wearing a pair of Maxxis MA-3DS - not that I expect them to last much longer than the Z8s.  So far, pretty good.
Only do it right - no bodging please.   Keeper of the failed stator list.   John.

10,000 miles?    :123:

Must be so squared off, were you at the point of not needing your sidestand? Bike just stood up on its own?   :084: 
Brilliant.  :008:

I’m considering the Avon Trailrider tyres. Aggressive, look good on the bike, excellent handling in dry and wet conditions, minor off-road capability, but quite pricey.



 


My rear Pilot Road 2 tyre is under restriction due to a screw and a temporary puncture repair with one of these:

Hopefully one day a tyre will come along that will deal with diesel spills, screws and nails.

Just a heads up about eBay offering 15% off from selected sellers until 8th October. There’s quite a few biker shops participating with loads of gear as well as tyres. At the moment there’s Metzeler Roadtec 01, Pilot Road 2’s and 5’s, Bridgestone BT-023, Pirelli Angel GT II and a few others for tyre sizes 160/60/17 and 120/70/17.

I have had Dunlop Roadsmart 3s on my Mk2 for more than 2 years now and 40,000km. On my second set, but they have long life with great grip. Have toured all over Ireland with them & commute daily 👍😃

Got Michelin Pilot Road 2 on my CBF.







I like the tyres but they take 3+ miles before they warm up properly, the bike can be a bit slippery for the first few miles in cold, wet weather.   :190:

Haven't noticed the 3km thing. Not inclined to get my knees down much 😊.

Yeah I think that bike is a Kawasaki Versys, sort of the same as a Biffer. I posted it to show the tyres and thread in action.
