Decent all round but be cautious in the wet Continue reading...
Ive had 2 sets on my bike and would recommend them for scratching, touring and commuting - but maybe not a damp track day! Continue reading...
I rate this tyre highly for the zzr if its dry' fillets are easily removed and your be a hero on the first corner, but I wish I'd have tried other brands as they never needed replacing together. Continue reading...

 I ride a 1998 Honda Blackbird, these tyres seem to be perfect for my bike and the way I use it. They are very good come wet or dry and deliver decent mileage, I get around 7500 miles from a front and 5000 from the rear. The tyres are very stable at speed and predictable in the corners... Two up or solo, touring or scratching they fit the bill.

I agree, I have had a pair on my old Diversion XJ900s and have had to change the rear tyre as it had a puncture at 9500 miles. Tread was down to 2.7 mm and could easily have hit the 10000 mile barrier with ease but at that tread depth a new one was way better than a repair.

Front tyre (fitted at same time just over a year ago) will do 10000 + and has 3mm+ tread left.

I do not ride excessively fast or agressively so I cannot comment on the handling of the tyre in all styles but for me it has always been great on my bike / weight / riding style combination.
