Time to say goodbye to the M5 's , managed 3500 miles with them, been a good tyre, out last Saturday in the rain again never missed a beat they were rock solid. I'm not a hard rider, but they squared off sooner than I thought. The new hoops are Michlin pilot road 3, first thoughts are they turn and roll into the turns quick, a lot quicker than the M5 , heat up nicely and look pretty good. if the weather does the same this year as last year it will be a summer of rain. Heading up to John O Groats , Fort William, Ullapool and Skye next month so they'll get a good run in.:)

Same here, was looking into the PR3's last week but bought a set of Pilot Power 2 CT instead;
I'm not much of a rain rider anyway....
got these on at the moment, I like them a lot. I'm thinking of the pures for my next change more for the weight loss. Now if I could only get the mof to release some funds for those bst black mambas :D
