Great in Wet and 10k Plus Miles
By far and away the best wet weather motorcycle tire out there (now bested by the Road 5) with the ability to accumulate many miles. I have done over 10k miles in all weather conditions with various loads on my 2013 Triumph Tiger Explorer. Traction is not an issue in all rain conditions and even inspires confidence to still have fun through any amount of water on the road. In the dry it heats up quickly and has a very soft carcass to absorb road imperfections. However, the soft carcass loses some road feel when riding at the limit and the steep profile makes slower-speed maneuvers more challenging. Overall, a wonderful do-all tire. I believe there are better performing tires that can deliver similar mileage at the expense of wet weather performance but if you're riding in the wet stuff most of the time, I'm not sure there's much better. Note: After 10k miles my front had terrible cupping due to the number of sipes within the tread. While this did not impact performance, this type of tire wear may be unavoidable with a tire containing this many sipes and ridden aggressively. YMMV.
