I like these tyres a lot. £180 fitted to the bike at Chris Mullins in Gloucester. Dunlop Roadsmart 2 & Michelin PR4 equivalents are £260.

The rear has done 7600 miles on the MT09 Tracer - some life left in the front but at that price, treated the bike to a new set.

Shame the fitting ape bent the ABS encoder wheel on the rear tyre. It's straighter and working now but no quibbles, Chris is ordering a new one which can be fitted next time a tyre is changed.

Ideal "sport-touring" fitment for any midweight bike, tested in most conditions including the very wet Eiffel Mountains in March and the baking hot Auvergne/Welsh Marches in summer.

For lardier bikes they do a Storm 3 which is equivalent to Michelin PR4 GT
