Have had the pirelli angels on my bike for a bit over 6,000 k and thought it was worth a bit of a review. Riding has included touring to Falls Creek, a squirt along the Tolmie-Whitfield road and along the GOR (Apollo Bay - Warrnambool) and a fair bit of commuting in Melbourne's wet summer. I had Bridgestones b45s on the bike before these. The first thing I must add that this is a step up from a cross ply to a radial. The angels were good right from the start even riding home on a wet night after getting them fitted. The big difference I have noted in these tyres is the front end stability over rough or rutted roads. The second is the controlled lean in on the twisty stuff - its not a quick fall into the lean or neither is it a wrestle to get it over. My bike is shaft driven and has the small step out on the back wheel when heavy engine breaking is applied. This sometimes tests a tyre particularly in the wet but these havent given me a problem. But what has driven me to write this review is the wet weather performance especially in the downpours we have had recently. The wet weather performance has been fantastic even in a couple of heavy breaking situations there has been no sign of letting go. Finally after 6,000k the wear is not great and it looks like there is another 6,000 left in the rear tyre easily.
