All being well, I'll be getting a pair of PR2's. Has anyone got any more feedback on PR2's, thank you.

New pair of PR2's fitted today at 36,500 miles. The useable tread to the TWI is ~ front 3.5mm and rear 5.5mm. I'll run them at 32/36psi and see how I get on.

Will check the production week/year next time I get the bike out.

5k on my PR2'S now in all weather's. No issues to report, grip well in all circumstances. Wearing very well and they should be fine till my expected 10k lifespan of them.


Ps.anyone know where I can read up on battery chargers? 😁
The GS 'is' the better bike :-)

An update, the PR2's have now done 5,000 miles. The front has 1.6mm serviceable tread depth to the TWI. The rear has 2.0 - 3.0mm, unusually, there seems to be uneven wear either side of the centre of the tyre. There is no sign of "white lining" and the ride is still compliant. It's just a shame the PR2's are now longer available, I'd have them again if they were.

Uneven wear either side - could this be cupping? I have the same on my Road Pilot 4’s rear.
