Fitted a set of Pirelli Angel ST's on the 16V RS last saturday and have done about 300 miles since. With a good mix of Motorway, city and fast country riding as well as having to ride through the mother of all hailstorms on monday.

The bike feels like a different machine, light and sharp to turn in, it seems almost telepathic when you need to turn. On bad surfaces it doesn't tramline like a lot of other tyres and will hold a steady line through rough corners. Io extremely wet roads the bike handles every bit as well as in the dry.

When I get a few more miles on them, I will add a bit more data. So far very pleased and would recommend them highly.

That's what I'm saying! Got a spare pair in the shed for when the current tyres wear out. Glad that someone else, besides Charlie and I, have given them a go. Let us know how they go over the longterm for you.
Very Happy

Thanks 88KE, i'll be working in Gorey the week after next and will be staying down in the Amber Springs one of the nights, so maybe we can catch up then.

Went for the standard sizes 120/70 17 on the front and 160/60 18 rear
