i have ran the 023, t30, angel gt, pr2, pr3, pr4. some in gt and some not.
they all felt good, my milage is usually very bad, but the way i ride, i expect that.

my last set of pr4, rear went 8 days, front went 10 days. mileage was 2500 on the rear and  3k on the front. (trip to nc/tn)
i don't run my tires till the stuffing comes out and add that to the milage count, i go to the bars, and sometimes past. going past the bars makes them more susceptible to punctures and cuts, dangerous if unexpected rain, and difficult to judge if you can get another fun msta ride on it. lol

i have run several sets of pr4 on both bikes, because i know the life i can expect on trips with them. local i can experiment with different tires easier. my little 650 still has a pr4 on it from a arkansas trip last fall.
i have not tried the Metzeler Roadtec 01 but probably will this season, if LLoyd says its good, i would trust that for sure. 

yesterday i just purchased 4 tires, basically from bike bandit, (JW price match)  stone 023, got 2 fronts, one little bike rear, one c14 rear, after rebate all 4 tires will be like $280 , ( c14 rear is a 50, not 55 like i usually run)  for the price they should work very well.

my little 650 with pr4 was a blast in arkansas and missouri they stuck great, wore very well, was pleased with them. on the other hand, any good tire probably would have felt good.

hope this helps,

Welcome,  from Farmington here,  looking forward to a great year of riding.
100 miles?  Damn!!  Got lucky at this place,  under 3.5 miles each way for mine to the shop.

Some great guys and skilled riders here, I have learned tons from them!!

Lakeville Man Seriously Injured in Motorcycle Crash in Dakota Co.

A Lakeville man was seriously injured after a motorcycle accident Saturday in Dakota County.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, 39-year-old Dustin Rahier crashed just before 12 p.m., on Highway 50 and Holt Avenue in New Tier.

The state patrol said Rahier was popping wheelies when traffic slowed in front of him and caused him to brake hard. The motorcycle then rolled onto the right side.

The Minnesota State Patrol initially reported they were investigating a fatal accident at the same intersection.

No skills and no brains, walk or get a ride from someone who has those.

lol, hate to laugh at a bad subject but it hit me light.
the rest was well said, although a tic rough around the edges, the message was clear to understand.

JVS and Tony (and others), sorry for the loss.
