I had some fitted to my 749 before going to the Nurburgring last weekend.

Very stable, warmed up nice & quick & even the ride home in torrential rain was drama-free! The softer egdes are much stickier (you can really feel it when you run a finger across the surface of the tyre) & offered excellent grip.

I'd recommend them as they kept me shiny side up

and they worked? Hows about a write up Ian. Be interested to know how they stack up.
My local dealer has put two sets of CT's on and say's they're pretty good.
He also has Dunlop qualifiers for the road as well, but I'm guessing they'll only last for one tankful??
