    I use s21s all year round. But I did notice last day in leafy roads and cold temps the traction control appeared alot more but never felt unsafe at Pace

    Hi.... I find your post confusing. I assume you are talking about riding on the road... And the weather hasn't been very cold (certainly not in October when you posted).
    So I'd be asking why are you are losing traction so much? Is it you (e.g. not waiting for warm up) or is it the tyre just not performing in cold weather?

    I've done 2.5k miles on pilot 5's since Sept. amazing tires.. I run in sport mode all the time and every ride is a fast road pace.. was out on new years day in 4-7 degrees over the lake district and not once did the traction light come on.. cracking all year round rubber. Wont hesitate to replace with same tires

    I'd agree agree with you so far. Whilst I ride all the time I don't feel I've given them a real work out in the cold to comment yet so good to hear. I'll update when I feel I've fully tested in the cold weather that has just arrived...(maybe early tomorrow morning as it happens!)...

    Just fitted a set of Pilot Road 5's to my gen 2 after being impressed with them on my Blackbird. Only had the bike a few days and the headrace bearings are knackered so not riding hard but so far on my commute they feel nice and secure with good feedback...

    I use the s21s all year round. Nothing mad unless you exit a corner in 3rd gear mid revs and wack it

    Will be interesting to see what the reviews say about the S22. Every year the new version gets more grip and life.
    In a few years you will be able ride them on the ceiling and they will last forever

    Re: all year round tires

    Lol I have always found Bridgestones harsh on the road but the rate at which they have been releasing new hypersports makes me think they are probably much different now.

    I want to try the R11, S22 and the Dunlop TT's
