I had new Metzeler Roadtecs fitted a while back, which I actually liked quite a lot.
The rear was replaced with a Dunlop SportSmart out of expediancy - but I never liked it much.
The front Metzler was still ok for a bit but I opted to swap the tyres as a pair and after wondering about the Michelin Power RS I had a pair of PilotRoad 5s fitted.
There was a moment of buyer regret when I saw a pair of PowerRS next to my PR5s - very nice looking tyre.

I like new tyres - they always seem so much better than the old ones.  These PR5s seem to turn in better and seem to be very sticky, but is that because they are new, or the weather is warm, or they really are a step forward?  They certainly inspire confidence and I am very happy.   Let's see how they last - fitted at 24,770 ...

A friend had his second set of PR5s installed on his Yamaha R1 Monday. He says he wont use anything else....

I'm going to try the Pirelli Angel GT II next on my K1200S
