I doubt any of the regulars on here have tried RA3's, we all seem to be stuck on Michelins at the mo'.

Looking at the reviews, RA3's are rated up with the top tyres, eg Angel GT's R01's, R5's. Some rate the RA3's as the best. The Angel ST's didn't go down well with a few of us on here, I binned them half worn.
The greatest deception men suffer is from their own opinions.

I've worn two sets of Continental Road Attack 3s and I highly recommend them over similar touring tyres, both for neutral, satisfying handling and reliable, faultless grip year-round.
Probably the most sportier tyre between touring ones.

I just fitted Trail Attacks to my KTM. They're not a very pretty tyre, and I found the rear to be narrower, even when sized exactly the same as the originals. They perform okay but somehow, the aesthetics let me down..

I may also give them a go in the future.

Im running Pirelli Scorpion Trail II and while they are great in the street they slide all over the place on gravel or dirt roads.

Much like with Curry Houses in Bradford, in such a highly competitive industry, provided you choose the correct tyre type for your riding, they are all going to be pretty good on dry roads  :169:

FWIW: Angel GTs are a lot better than the STs, but price is often the main factor (for me).

How are you getting on with the RS3s? I ran a set on my GS and they were faultless. I have a my T1050 now too

A bit of a late reply, but last year I rode with another Tiger Rider who had a set of them on his bike. He loved them. When he wore them out he swapped to Michelin 5's... said he will go back to the Contis as he preferred the feel of them to the 5's.

how have you found them?
