Hi Dave,
Will be interesting to hear about the PR5s
I ended up getting PR4s, as there were non in NZ when I needed a set.
Hopefully we might see the sun this weekend...its been crap down here 🌧🌧🌧

Hey DaveW i got the 2 sets of PR5s delivered to my door for $1000, 500 each set, they are cheeper than the PR4s, from what I'm hearing they have more carbon and less silicone on the shoulders for better dry side grip, which i think will overcome the PR4s shortcomings. Im going to run them on both my bikes, but ill fit them on the GT first, and if I'm not totally happy with them i can remove them and fit them on the Multi. I really wanted to try the S21s on the GT but being winter and all, i went PR5 way.

The PR5s felt quite good, but an expensive scrubbing in trip.

Wish I was 'scrubbing in' a set of PR5"s .......... :cry:

My Angels are wearing so slowly........ :lol:..... (that would be because I haven't been able to take the GT out for some exercise since early this year :shock: ).

Oh well...... I'll have your experience with them when I do get around to riding again and clocking up some more kms later in my "Annus Horribilius" of a year.... ;).

Cheers all.

I got a ticket on this bike too. I feel like it's kind of a big orange cop beacon. Here The States I don't think our points system is a brutal as you guys, but it still ain't cheap.

I had a radar DaveW, But he got me mid to exiting a corner, i had time to throttle off, but never grabbed any brakes, i wear ear plugs, and have a speaker plugged into the radar, i think I'm going to have to go blue tooth, and have speakers in the ear plugs themselves. Oh i probably need to slow down a little also. :|
