Pirelli Angel Sport Touring Rear Tire
I have only ridden about 1K miles since installing the Pirelli Angel. The tire is tracking very nice, I have had a few slips but I am unsure if that is due to the sand in the road or the quality of the tire. At this point I will think it has been sand and will continue to push on this tire as it does appear to be a very good quality choice.

great grip in wet
Wow wow is what I can say.
Had these for about 5000km now on my FZ800N. Great in the wet and heat up so fast and when I'm at the traffic lights notice that the water is drying out before my eyes. but you still have to be careful.
In the dry I can push my FZ to the limit
And get so low I'm scraping my pegs. Heat up fast and when hot time to chop in to the twisty roads. My old Dumlops gave me 20,000km but the GT's will far better that.

Long life and Great handling
The Pirelli Angel ST front tires lasted me over 13,000 miles/2 years and continue to handle very well in wet and dry conditions. These tires hold up well during my 120 mile daily commute and are a blast on weekend rides through the twisties.

Front tire didn't last and is putting the fear of god in me every time I lean over.
Have Angel ST's on an FJR1300. Rear tire is holding up well. Front Angel is scaring the cr*p outta me with about 4k on her. It slips on the slightest road imperfection and then grabs...I hate it. I've been diligent about psi checking.....but the tire is starting to cup even though it shows good tread life left. I'll be putting on Michelin's next, as they have been superb on my other bike. (Pilot Power 3's on Z1).

I have ran multiple sets of angel ST tires on my 08 BMW R1200RT. I have ridden on many different brands and models of tires over the years and while I would say most tires have a bit better tread life, nothing is as predictable and confidence inspiring as the Angel ST. Their traction is hands down superb over any other tire that has been on my bike. I've had numerous bikes over the years and have always favored the Pirelli brand for their superior performance in both wet and dry weather. The biggest sacrifice you make with Pirellis is tread life. And their tires seem to run a bit more expensive than the others. But, when that contact patch is the only thing keeping you and your bike from the roadway, I think the Angel ST is the best tire for a sport touring bike. Also if you are on a heavier bike such as my BMW, I definitely recommend the "E spec" rear tire. I noticed running the standard rear tire that I had a lot of sidewall flex which gave the feeling of a flat tire.
I would have given Pirelli Angel ST 5 stars, but I know tread life is a big concern for many people. And if you are strictly a fair weather commuter, this tire isn't ideal for you.

Very good tire, but old
The tires are working very good. The grip is perfect.
But the tire I get was older than two years. That's bad.

Sticks like glue but only 90 hp killed it
6714 miles on a 90 hp R1100RT and the cords were showing so the only reason I bought another is because they stick like glue and in order to keep a matched set I bought another rear
