I got 10K miles from mine and that included a track day, so you should be fine  :830:

I agree ... I absolutely loved the Angel GT's ... Unfortunately I tried the Road 5's last year and was rather disappointed ..
Will be going back the Angel GT's this year.

Why were you disappointed with he PR5?

Nb: OP I'm sure you'll have many happy safe miles on the GT.

It’s the way the front tyre wears ...  I changed to them (R5’s btw) for the Spain/Portugal trip last July. After some mileage, With the wide tread pattern the wear feathering (peaks and troughs) make the tyre feel a tad vague and when your coming down a mountains with hair pins ... not very confidence building.

The Angel GT’s didn’t do this.

Im still running the factory fitted tyres. Coming from a triumph tiger 800 with a 21inch which i felt confident cornering on, I must admit to feeling nervous with the front end of the sx. Is this common on the factory tyres, is it just a case of getting more confident with a smaller front wheel

Thanks

To a high percentage of us .. these tyres are rubbish and vague and give no feed back. Wear them out and get a different set fitted.
