Recommend me a sport touring tyre

Im just about due for a new set of tyres..

Ive narrowed it down to sport touring tyres because I do a lot of kilometres mines a 2013 and I'm 41,000ks already.

T30 evo
Angel GT
Pilot road 4

anything else I should consider?

I like the PP3s

These have almost 6k miles and still have plenty of thread.

Ive had pilot road 4s on my er6n but only had the bike for a month before I sold it. Never had the chance to push it. But I hated looking at the tread pattern

From what I've read pr3s are more of a sport tyre than touring and will get a lot less milage so thats out of the choices unfortunately

On a side note, I'm at 35,000ks on my '14. Glad to see someone else else who's not afraid to rack up the miles (kilometers)

Not yet. Will be looking at having it done before October. I swear that the bike feels smoother as the tachometer goes up. So good!

I'm sort of moving over to Pirelli. Got an Angel front on my Speedy, which improved the steering no end, and a rear on my VFR. It's done about 3,000 miles and is just showing a little squaring off, although I do a lot of highway on this bike. Anything would square off. Never ridden PR4 but will certainly give mileage. Read a few comments about the fronts going off about halfway worn. Dunno, I'll likely stick to Angels throughout now as I wear others out.

I only did this to get all green buttons on my panel
