Another "which tire" thread, eh? FWIW I put over 9500 miles on a set of Pirelli Angel ST's. Great edge to edge cornering grip, superb in the rain, and during cornering they turn in quicker than the Bridgestone BT023's I'm running now. Once these wear out I'm going back to the Angels.

I prefer the feel & traction feedback of the latest Pirellis over Michelin

Huge difference between 55 and 50. The bike sits slightly higher and leans over so much easier, i wont go back to a 50 again. Its an awesome ratio for the bike, I love it!

I've run pirelli's from day one, 50,000 miles on my bike now (06 1000rr) I used to run the Corsa III's, but now running the rosso II's. I feel like the Corsa III's gave me a bit more confidence. The rosso II's definitely last a lot longer (at least the rear does)

Love my Angel ST's.

I don't know how you can compare tires, unless you could ride a specific track with new tires A and switch to new tires B, all in the same day.

Running tire A until they are worn and then getting new tire B and saying they are better is not a fair comparison.

Sport rider magazine just did a street tire comparison. Buy tires based on the type of riding you do. It's best to take ego out of your tire buying needs along with most things regarding motorcycles. Why waste money on super sticky tires if you don't ride hard enough to utilize them and vice versa. If you have a half inch of unused tire on either side and a flat spot down the middle , be smart, buy a good sport touring tire. Michelin and Pirelli both make great tires!

Awesome I bought a 55 rear for next season. Heard many people say that same thing that they will never go back to the 50 rear. I'll be glad next year to change out my seven year old tires.
