Pretty much everyone I ride with uses the Michelins, but I have no trouble matching their pace on Avon Storm 3D XM.

That being said I am a Metzeler fan and had the Roadtec 01 on my MT-10 so would use the SE version on the SX when these Avons are ready to come off.

Thanks, think I will be trying the Metzeler next, a friend of mine swears by them albeit on a different bike :)

The 01 is tried and tested (I have had 3 sets between my 15 & 19 plate bikes).  Plenty on here about them.

IMO, the 01SE feels sportier, i.e. it appears to turn in easier.  Not sure on its longevity though.

i have 6500 miles on the pp5's and they are just about to square a bit. I will take the hand plane and put the bike up on the rear stand, put her in gear and reshape the tires. I have done this with tyres in the past and find that it leaves the tyres good for another 2000 miles without that feeling of going over the edge as you tip into the corner.
