Just spent the afternoon in the mountainous country side and it was great! Sketchy in some curves but felt like I've acheived something. Great challenge with the Pirelli Scorpion.

I'm pretty possitive I will give a try with these in few weeks.

3rd tyres set review

Hi guys,

Little feedback from France on mounted tires on HS.

The Pirelli Scorpion were great, not so enthusiast first, coming from Bridgestone S20R! But finally, I really enjoyed them on dry and wet road, nice handling, scratching selector... But their short lasting (6000 km, 3750 miles) and price (300 front and rear) make me chose Pirelli Angel GT given for long lasting and very good grip on wet.
Bad choice! Nothing to complain with the Angel GT itself but it doesn't match with the HS. The HS looses it agility and smooth handling due to front tyre low design and the rear tyre doesn't give enough confidence.
After 8000 km (5000 miles), not so much for a GT, I fitted Metzeler M7RR (240).
Those tires are made for the HS! Handling, precision, comfort, grip on dry road.
Not so pressed with testing them on wet...
Already done 1000 km (600 miles).
Track session on end of September.

Give you feedback

sorry, i cannot complain about the Angel GT, I like them really. Do not know how long they will last, have them since 3000km. But extreme good feeling, exactly the opposit you describe.
really bad was my HS on Dunlop Roadsmart2

Michelin PR4's suit this bike so well, IMO.

Yeah the PR4's are next on my list for tires.. I'm just debating whether to get the GT's or not.

Try the Pirellli Angel GT. They're fantastic.

Strong, stable and tons of grip even in the rain. Just to shows how much confident they made me; I've grinded the pegs on the ground barely three days after I've got them installed. They're strong for two passenger. Much, much, much better than the Pirelli Scorpion trail.

Just bought a pair of pilot road 4s. What do you think about the performance over OEM? And how many miles do you have on them now?

Heaps better than OEM and far far better in the wet. The PR4s really do inspire confidence. I have around 12000klms on them and I would think they are good for another 2500 - it's the rear that will go first.

Mate has just put GTs on his motoguzzi 850, he went from normals to the GT because he wanted even greater distance. His first comments have been that there appears to be little difference in grip....

I should say most of my riding is on 'b' roads and I go looking for twisty bits but I'm not a real holligan (but I do keep trying )

Interesting. I had the roadsmarts on a prior bike, and they had absolutely transformed the handling. I was between pilot road 4 and road smart 2, and chose pr4 due to roadsmart2 being a bit dated. I'm surprised that the performance was so bad.

I'm torn between Pilot road 4 and Dunlop Q3. Which of the 2 tyres would be best thinking of getting a set soon with 4 Wheel Online, hope someone could help me out to decide which brand to pick.
