Need new tires...any suggestions?

Discussion in 'Motorcycle Talk' started by Lolat440, Oct 26, 2016.

  1. I have purchased a 2001 Falco with 5700 miles on it and I love it!
    The tires are the original Metzler tires which are worn and hard as rocks. Not too confidence building in the wet as I found out (but not the hard way thank goodness!).
    I just put multiple hickies in the saddle from involuntary butt clenching.
    I mostly ride an hour or so at a time with an occasional track day.
    I was looking at a new set of Pirelli Rosso III's. Am I on the right track or would the Falco respond better to another tire make/model?
    thanks in advance,
    Fred
     

  2. Rossos are great tires but are a lot more expensive than Dunlop Q3s. People very commonly suggest Q3s if you are going to be on the track occasionally. They are decent in the rain as well. But not many tires are both excellent in the rain and excellent on the track (dry).
     
  3. What kind of life you get out of the G3s?
