Tires......

Are you happy with the pirelli's ?  What you going to fit when they are worn out ?

Ive not done many miles on my cr as it was bought november.  Im quite happy with them but depending on mileage I may change them.

Whats you thoughts and what you going to fit  ?

I had conti road attack 2s on the vfr vtec which I thought were bloody brilliant but michelin have moved things on again with the pilot road 3.  I had pilot roads on the viffer when I bough it and they slowed the steering down by quite a large margin where as the contis made the bike as agile as a super sport 600 in comparison to the michelins.

Depending on mileage and how the pirelli's perform grip wise and mileage wise I may stick with them as they are dual compound.

    I am seriously considering Pilot Road 3 when I put the CR back on the road in March. I'm currently using Storms on the Deauville for their wet weather ability. Sue previously had these on her CBF1000FA but now has PR3s which she says are far superior. She is yet to find out how they compere regarding mileage though

    I think the PR3 are also dual compound and I'm probably going to give them a try once the weather warms up a little. I had the Avon Storm2U (also dual compound) which I think were brilliant and better than the Pirellis on the wet, slippery roads. This is very subjective since the CR is a much heavier bike and I haven't tried neither tyre on the other bike.

    Having reread the 1st post and this threads title I should mention that I will not be fitting any tires nor do I have any fitted. Being British and not American I shall be fitting Tyres :008: :008:

    I have already changed tyres ( Rocker , please note tyres ) as I do not intend taking my bike along any tracks.
     Scorpion trails are 90% tarmac and 10% road orientated. I chose to fit tyres that are 100% dedicated to tarmac reason being that 10% might help me out of a situation one day, particularly on a winters day.
     I went for Roadsmart 2

    Hi ,

    Roadsmart 2 is one of the best Touring tyres.
    Do you feel any differences related to Pirelli?

    Fairly sure that I will replace the Pirelli's in Spring as I don't feel comfortable in the wet on them.
