What tyres do the Aussie guys prefer? As the temperature gets a bit warmer down here.

All booked in to be fitted on 9th April.

I did get 6 500 with the rear not too bad, but the front sides are quite worn.

Looking forward to the Metzlers giving me more confidence

How are you getting on with them?

fantastic tyres, it's like a totally different bike, very solid on cornering.

Seems the Scorpions were not too good in comparison.

If I knew they would actually be this different, I would have changed them as soon as I got the bike.

They are a revelation.  I junked my Scorpions within 800 miles. They were dangerous in the wet imo.

Glad that you're getting on well with them.

1 VFR simply isnt enough! Crossrunner for commuting, VFR1200F for summer fun.

I've never had issues with Pirelli but when the current ones wear out I may try the Michelin PR5's , reviews are fantastic.
