Daily Commute Tire Option + Canyons
Hello! I was just wondering if anyone has run the Road 5's on the S1000RR and if they worked at all.
I have the tools and equipment to mount/balance my own tires and was considering the Road 5's for daily commuting and weekend canyon carving. I'd swap to a Q3+ or similar for track days next year and don't mind putting in the work to swap tires when needed. Maybe someday I'll have a second set of wheels.
I've run two sets of the Road 5's on a Yamaha FJ-09 and loved the tires. The FJ-09 is a little heavier and half the horsepower. I generally put around 8-10k miles / year on my motorcycles so I need a tire for commuting that will last a bit longer while also working at a street pace in the mountains. These tires were great for as fast as I wanted to go on the Yamaha FJ-09, but I've no clue how they might work with the S1000RR.
Even being gentle on the Metzler Racetec K3, they don't look like I'll get much mileage at all (They were on the bike when I purchased it).
Suggestions are welcome and appreciated!
Also considering options like the Michelin Power RS, Bridgestone Battlax T31, etc...
