The tortoise - February 20, 2020

I have completed 8000 miles on a set with tread to spare. I've toured France, Spain and Morocco on them. They are superb. I am a nervous wet weather rider but starting to enjoy it now! They are fitted to a Z900.

transformed my f800 gt from passe commuter to fun riding

graham - February 14, 2020

My BMW f800 gt is 6 months old. I bought it new. It came with Metzler Roadtec. The ride was underwhelming but the fact is that the bike did what I needed and was totally fit for purpose. I wore out the Metzler after 10000 miles, (I actually got a puncture on the front and the rear was completely worn out). So I looked around for long lasting tyres, the Pilot 5 came up as the best choice from a few review sites. I cant comment yet on the longevity of the tyre but for sheer transformation of ride the Pilot 5 has made my bike into a fun bike. I have got loads more confidence of the grip and positive feeling in regards grip. The bike dips beautifully into corners and is superb under heavy breaking. I have never bothered with writing reviews but have used them a lot. These tyres are so impressive I felt I had to leave a review. AMAZING I have only done a thousand miles on these tyres so my longevity score of 5* is unfounded by me and is just based on opinion of other reviews.
