New tyres...

Has anyone tried 209gp yet?

Have seen these on a few bikes recently and as its not always easy to get 208gp I thought I would give them a go and see if i get on with them. Anyone else tried these?

hmmm, will they test these though?

Of the tyre reports i have seen they usually test the road version which doesn't give much guidance against its track counterpart. Will wait and see but its a bit late now anyway...

I've got the Pilot Powers fitted to my 998 and they are confidence inspiring. First or second day out I had them scrubbed and gone end to end of the tire. They grip well and feel great - very sticky... 120/70/17 and 180/55/17. Went with . I went with the 180 on the rear for faster turn in and they lean....lean way far. I give up before the tire does.

Sounds good Go Galfer
think I give Tyreman a ring on Tuesday

One of my mates had a big off this morning on his R1 on the Milford to Hindhead road, the front just washed out and he and the bike hit a brick wall. He was ok but the bike was a total write off.
