this time of year on road then you wont go far wrong with the M7RR's or newer M9RR's loads of cold wet grip and go well in the dry with plenty of confidence. imo

Thanks, I’ve been looking at the M9RR’s or S22’s. I’ve heard Michelin’s re good too.

Impressive. I did use my Z800 in bad conditions. Looking at a winter bike so the RR can stay in the garage until the weather improves.

I left work early as I heard it started to snow. Got 1/2 was home before it really started to fall heavy for 20 mins. No grit on the roads and running super corsa at the time, it was a squeaky bum 30 mins ride home....

Go Sports Touring tyre in Winter.
Fyi Bridgestone just launched the T32. They've been on a roll of late producing great tyres, would be worth an experiment, till you can fit summer boots back on.

I had Road 5 on my Z and really liked them. Will think about that one. Defo on the list now as hadn’t considered ST tyres.

Thanks Alex, helpful as always. Experiments are always a weakness of mine :-)

The RR is my winter bike :0

I've gone down the Michelin Power 5s route. They're really good in cold and wet conditions, will let you know about the snow later...

Thanks Katie, i like the look of them too as the tread is similar to Road 5’s.

Road 5’s would be my pick too for this time of year tbh.
Then would fit M9RR’s come spring [emoji41]

I'm getting Pirelli Rosso Diablo 3s fitted next week. I've used them in the dry, torrential rain and sleet and they were ace in all of them. That was on a Ducati Supersport, so not the same power as the RR, but I was so impressed with them I'm switching.

Thanks. Let me know how you get on with them.
