Yes. The best tires I've used yet. Great grip, I've been dragging the side stand. Good life, 8,000 miles out of the rear running fast and loaded for 6,000 of those 8,000 miles. No cupping on the front for a change. I don't ride in the rain much but when I have there was no drama, but I don't test wet traction. The best price for the pair seems to be at South West Moto Tire, www.swmototires.com. The rear looks a tad narrow mostly due to the profile. I'll probably fit a 180 next time mostly for the (slightly) increased load capacity and contact patch.
I had a pair of Roadteks put on in Portugal mid-tour. I had previously twice had Bridgestone 020s. Both times the Bridgestones squared off badly. The Roadteks didn't. And the front outlasted the rear by about 2,000 miles. I've since replaced the Roadteks with Avon Azarros which seem a little harsher.
fired a set on my bike soon after buying it. I like them, but since this is my first bike, I don't have anything to compare them to. I bought them on the advice of my friend who pounds out 25,000 miles a year on his bike. He has run then on his FJR1300 and loves them.
