    Nope........the PR4 was over rated and over priced and even the rear scalloped.

    Trailsmart max.

    think I'll try a pair. Not impressed with Anakee 3s, they tend to break loose at the rear easily, maybe slow to warm up.

    I had Anarchy3's for years on and eventually got persuaded to try summit different. Been on Dunlop Roadsmart 3's ever since. A noticeable upgrade. More grip more feel...same mileage. Not a boak inducing price either.

    Interesting, i had Anakee 3's on my last CT, never had any issue with them other than noise and they lasted for ages. Had the standard Pirellis on my current bike and now have PR4s which seem good but with a couple of European trips this year i was thinking of going back to the Anakee 3s for the mileage, may consider the Dunlops.

    I had a set of original roadsmarts on my GSX1400 after years of Avons (the persuasive tyre guy again.) Night and day. Felt like a proper sport tyre, more movement but way more grip...but destroyed the rear in no time.

     So not wanting to buy a rear every month I went back to Avons. So you can understand why was apprehensive of going back and trying their pure road compound, later version. No need, getting 5k out a rear, same as the Anakkee3's.

    Michelin are too spendy for me and folk I know have not liked particularly the fronts on the PR3/4's (Street Triple R & that lovely big Guzzi trailie which name escapes me!) I cant afford to be disapointed, ye know?!

       :005:

    Got over 10k out of mine and still plenty left when I sold the bike. Never had anywhere near that with anything else.
