     :0461: Wow! I replaced PR4's with the Metz R01 SE's, they are a cut above, really suit our bike. Never felt this when I replaced the Angel ST's with the PR4's, they felt better but not wow better.

    Well my PR4'S have given me a years riding and 10k miles, i have decided to give the Roadtec 01 SEs a go.
    A bit more money than the Michelins but you lot have said some good things about them  :152:
    Will keep you posted on my thoughts afyer a couple of weeks riding  :031:

    Off to get my second set, had 10k out of the last lot and you can see they've been taken to the edges - such is the grip they provide.

    320 for the set fitted, it's a chunk but it's a bargain as far as I'm concerned.

    Thats good to hear  :152: im really enjoying the grip and feedback the new rubber gives.
    I paid 290 for the pair plus fitting, about 50 more than the Michelin PR4'S but so far well worth the extra cost.

    Well I didn't come off in the freezing pissing rain but I daresay we'll need to wait til the weekend to really test the new revision. Get em scrubbed in.

    I loved the Roadtec 01 SE on my Tiger, though after a while they squared off quite a bit. I've since gone to the Continental Road Attack 4 and like them even more.... :169:

    I was down too the metal wires on my OEM Pirelli rear tyre  :003: Not ever gone below 1.5mm before. I was very lucky.

    A tough track day followed by 200 miles of visiting / riding to get home was more than enough.

    Had a pair of Michelin Road 6s put on yesterday. 311.00 from 'thevisorshop'. Will wait to see how they go before commenting. Fri 13th ride home on damp roads was good, however compared with bare wires, any kind of rubber would have been better.  :031:

    I can certainly vouch for the wet grip of the Metz R01 SE's, I rode 3.5hrs in that monsoon, through several flooded roads on Friday morning, full of confidence in the grip. Not dawdling, beat the Tom-Tom time by 10mins.
