New road and track tyre. Looks interesting. Can never have too many new tyres on the market.

I'm unsure about That, I trust Michelin and Metzeler but Dunlop not so much. They either slip or have very numb feeling in my experience!!

Sadly tyres are subjective. You can end up forking out £300 to find out you've got new tyres you don't get on with.

Very true Kwacky. I tend to do a lot of research in tyres so I kinda know what I'm getting myself into before buying them. Was talking to my tyre guy last time I got a pair and he said a handful of years back people would buy tyres and if they didn't like them they would change without even thinking about it, now however it's so expensive that people just can't afford to switch that easily.

I tried the Bridgstone RS10 on a couple of those test ride bikes and I thought they were fantastic in the dry dry, id really like to try them in the spring/ summer but worry that they wouldn't be so good if wet on the roads
