Put a pair on and ridden 350 miles today at a brisk pace. Stablity, feel and grip, deeply impressed, they make the Pirelli Angels seem a whole generation older

Interesting. I was considering the Angel GTs as my first replacement tyres for my GRiSO, based mainly on positive reviews. That said, the Angels have been around for some years now. Tyre tech moves fairly quickly. Perhaps the newer stuff is a tad better?

Brent the only question mark is longevity, but wont know that for a few thousand miles.

I love the Pirelli's but they are not as good

I was thinking about putting a pair of Roadtec 01's on my GRiSO. Metzeler recommend the HWM (Heavy Weight Motorcycle) for the rear on a GRiSO.

 I would of thought it was unnecessary unless riding 2 up or luggage carried a lot, I will occasionally do a camping trip but don't plan on carrying a pillion. What did you go with?

Glad to hear Metzeler has a good tire now. I found the stock Metzelers to be surprisingly bad in every category.

I agree, and I would not look at fitting Metzelers for this reason.  It's a financial disaster to fit the wrong tyres.  I'm sticking to my Michelin PR4 GTs.

I thought the same the same thing, we to my tyre guy and he was out of stock with Pirelli so had a choice of the Michelin PR4's or Metzeler's. I have had two bad experiences with Michelin (on one occasion their senior tester turned, up rode my bike and immediatly refunded me for the tyres and bought me a pair of Pirelli's as compensation!)

Anyway i too suffered with the original Metzelers but i can honestly say the new ones are fantastic.

I actually like the OEM z8 metzler. Jeez Louise am I the only one?

Got me out off a tight spot going in too hot . I put all my faith in them and leaned it in more.

no drama in in the rain ( I do tone it down though when its wet)

Having said that they are squaring in the back after 10000km of none superslab riding.

Maybe i just dont ask too much from them.

What improvements do you see over Oem?

Always had great experience with the Z8 Roadtec's and got good mileage from them.
Have had MP4's which are great tyres and now have Roadtec O1's and these are a terrific tyre and after 3500 km are wearing well, including a track day. They were excellent for a road tyre on a fat arse road bike.
Happy to recommend them.

I need new tires on the Norge and GRiSO, am considering these, but also Dunlop Road Smart III....

The Set of Metzler M3's I had fitted on my NS run this summer are almost gone (3k miles) They were very nice, and to be honest not too much of an improvement on the stock Angel ST's (with 7K miles) a testament to the Angels IMO. Metzlers are good tires...... Glad they are making an ST tire.

One of my all time favorite tires were the Road Smarts on my C-10 Concours. I really like the Angels and am interested in the Metzler, but leaning towards the Road Smart III's. Not a Michelin cult fan....... I had a set of Pilot Road 2's on my FJR, were very strange......

I have been running Angles or Diablo's on the GRiSO for the last 4 years (2 rears and 1 front per year on average) they are great tyres, until i tried the new Metzlers, i cannot vouch for how long they will last, until they wear out, but i can say for me they are better than the Pirelli's, give em a go
