    Ooo I've just replaced the rear road 5 with a new one and the front is about to be at the limit too.

    Road 5 this time then might change the pair to gts next time.

    What's the feeling with the gt2s especially if you've tried road 5s?


    I was very happy with the gt 1 but the road 5 are a lot better in corners.

    Curious how the gt2 stand up

    Going with Michelin Pilot Powers. Mates had them, dirt cheap for the money and grippy and last ok. Mate doesn't hang about on a bike, commutes in all weathers on them and seen reviews where people track day on them. Sounds the sort of tyre I'm after.

    Pilot Road 5's all the way. I am a long term user of Michelin Pilot Powers and thought they couldn't be beat. Until I tried the Road 5's. Utterly incredible tyres. They just 'work' and do what they should with spades of feedback and feel. Decent price too.
