ST2 tyres - I just finished off a set of pirelli angel GT and put on a fresh set of the new Michelin road 5.
After 2000+ km I absolutely love these especially in the wet, not as Slippy as the Angels and the rear is wearing well so far
I got 10000 out of the Angels, Michelins look like they will equal this or better.
Highly recommend them so far.

This is how I run them

Front (34 psi)
Rear (37 solo, 39 with panniers and 41 with panniers and pillion)
If it is raining steadily I drop pressures 2psi
Front 120/70ZR17
Back 180/55ZR17


Back 180/55ZR17

I just put a set on finally. They had them at 34/34 and after about 10 miles I noticed the front warm and the rear VERY warm. So smooth though. I like them a lot. I believe I will bump the rear up 38 and give that a go. I have some scrubbing in to do..

EDIT: Actually the installer had them at 36/34. I went to 34/38. Awesome ride. These are some nice tires.. Everything is effortless.
