Daily commuter and 35 years on a street bike, so I'm not unfamiliar with tires. I usually look to change my tires at this time of year because it just makes sense, new, deeper tread for wet conditions.My chosen tire for the past few years has been the Michelin Pilot Road 2. I liked the dual compound tread for long life and the softer sides gave me good enough traction leaning over so I could have a little fun when I wanted.The Road 2 is difficult to get now so my local shop recommended I try the Pirelli Angels, cost was appropriate and the tire looked to be similar to my old Michelins, so I gave it a shot.I had the local shop mount and balance for me and took them home and rode them. They have a little different turn-in characteristic from the Michelins but it's something I can get used to. Also, you need to know that I haven't had a lot of time to dial in my preferred pressure so that comment may change (I've been running 34 PSI on my 05 FZ6). Overall, I think they will work out just fine. I'm interested to see how long they will last. One thing my dealer said was I should get more miles than my Michelins, which isn't a bad thing, but if I still have some tread left but not enough for winter/rain riding next year, I'll change them anyway just to be safe. That negates the treadwear/longevity argument.FYI, I had some discounts from Bike Bandit and my dealer couldn't even come close on the price so he understood why I bought them on-line. He knows I buy everything I can from him, but sometimes a deal comes along that's too good to pass up.
2010 Yamaha FJR

I've pushed these in every way I can think of such as solo, solo with gear, and 2 up with gear. I did get the A spec for the rear and even riding 2 up with gear it retains its sportiness. Only about 2000 miles so far and I have barely noticed any wear. These tires grip and grip and grip and have such a smooth progressive lean in. Even being young and stupid on a big sport touring bike these give me the confidence to drag knee in the twisties without upset and it feels like there is still loads of grip available. The rain doesn't seem to phase these tires either as it takes a lot of effort to break them loose evenwith 150hp flowing to the rear tire.. These will be the only tires I will put on the FJR and I have already ordered another set for my FZ6. Best insurance policy I've found for my bike yet.
