After watching and reading all the glowing reviews on the Metzeler Roadtec 01's, I had a pair fitted and got them scrubbed in.

In a word, WOW, I know you can't compare new with old tyres, but feedback and grip is amazing, steering is light, neutral and progressive and the suspension feels noticeably plusher, plus they warm up quickly. They have a nice sporty feel to them and the bike seems almost telepathic.

As a bonus, Metzeler are offering a £30 prepaid credit card at participating dealers. Happy days. 
Personally, I much prefer the feel to  these tyres to any of the BT21, BT23, PP2,PR4 and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending these superb tyres.

Its almost time for me to change my PR4's, got 5k miles out of the rear and the front is good for maybe another 3k.  They were great in the wet, but felt soft and squirmy in the dry. They are definitely more  touring than sports and the turn in was to slow for me. 

I found Bridgestone BT023's a better tyre than PR4's in the dry, which is 95% of my riding. I'm considering either T30 evo's or Roadtec 01's.  Has anyone tried these ? What are your thoughts ?

Had new 650 for a week now. It lives on  the drive, I have noticed pooling of petrol under the bike coming from overflow pipes. The gauge is on 2 bars, so it isn't overflowing from tank? amy ideas.

Well I have done 2k miles on PR 4s on 10 days during euro tour. I have nevery felt more confident in tyres.  Beat stand Ard battlax 021s hands down.

Got to agree with you gsx1250faz!  I haven't done as many miles as you on the PR4's, but I've got to say that first impressions, they're better than the original 021's in the wet and dry.  Hope they last longer and don't square off too!  Won't be that difficult since I got crap mileage out of the Bridgestone's and I'm not a particularly hard rider.
