EPIC TIRE FOR YZF-R1 RAVEN
Hi, All. I ride a 2012 Yamaha YZF-R1 RAVEN.

I bought my bike with 0 miles. My first set of tires were the factory Qualifiers that lasted 4,300 miles. After that, I installed a set of Dunlop Q2's that lasted me 6,373 miles.That's a total mileage of 10,673. That mileage is when I installed the Pirelli Angel GTs. Today, my rear tire needs replaced. Guess what my mileage is... 19,882 miles. That REAR Pirelli Angel GT rear tire lasted me 9,209 miles!!

I've done long rides from TN to Kansas and back and from TN down to West Monroe, LA and back. I've had that bike since February 2013. Much of the riding has been done with my fiance on the back. She was on the back on that trip from TN to West Monroe.

I've had this tire in heavy rain at 100+ miles an hour, NEVER AN ISSUE. I've NEVER had a problem with this tire slipping. And it's got the highest mileage in any tire, I'd be wiling to bet. For as long as I ride sport bikes, this is the tire I will buy. hands down.

I think I can probably get another 1,000 miles out of the front before that one needs replaced. Usually I'll run the rubber flat but I'm doing a long ride to Kansas when I'm moving back here on the 20th of October. Right now, the wear bars are just flush with the rest of the tread which means the tire will no longer tread water. My big concern is getting caught in the rain now.

I've already placed my order for another rear. Thank you, Revzilla for supplying the best in equipment and having the very best customer service!!!

Sporting performance, touring durability
I put a set of Angel GTs on my 1200 Multistrada at the recommendation of my dealer's service manager. They replaced the OEM Scorpions, which lasted under 4000 miles. I now have an additional 3000 miles on the bike (and the Pirelli Angel GTs) and they have been excellent. I've worn the rear tire edge to edge, (no more "Angel GT" script there) but the tire has not squared off and it looks like another 4000 miles or more will be easy to attain.

The MTS is a big, powerful bike that eats tires when used in battle mode and the fact that the Angel GTs grip solidly and will return upwards of 8000 miles on a heavy bike has me convinced that Pirelli was deadly serious when they introduced this tire. They did very well in rain, didn't aquaplane, loose steering sensitivity or their connected feel on a cold, wet ride between Portland OR and Shasta City, CA. Turn in is neutral and immediate without being overly sensitive and they do not fall into turns, something that the Scorpions they replaced had a tendency to do.

Pirelli has a solid hit with this tire for those of us who want excellent real world road performance and long wear. They work right from the start even when cold too. And, their ride is compliant and comfortable as well.

The one thing I should mention is that they do seem sensitive to pressure. Overinflation will make them feel less secure and somewhat greasier. I noticed this when experimenting with pressures while seeking to find the ideal for my bike and riding style. As it happens, for me the recommended pressures worked best on the road.

Highly recommended and finally a worthy competitor to the PR3. In fact, it's hard to know how they could have done much better with them. I will replace these with another set when they are finally worn.

Great tire so far
I purchased this tire as a replacement rear for my 2013 Kawasaki ZX636R. I've only put about 500 miles on it so far, so I can't really speak to tread wear and I haven't had any wet traction experience with it. A little background...This is my first bike I've got 20,700 miles on it and this is the third rear. Most of my riding is commuting to/from work so I'm pretty easy on my tires for the most part. I rode the original Battlax rear pretty easy since I was a new rider and it developed a really bad flat spot. When I finally replaced it at about 9,000 miles the metal banding was beginning to show. I went with a Pilot Road 4 to replace it and immediately noticed a drastic improvement in grip and overall a much better feel. I felt a lot more confident leaning the bike on the Pilot. I got roughly 11,000 miles out of the Pilot. The center tread was gone with a little left on the sides. It was more evenly worn than the Battlax. I attribute that to the fact that I became a better rider with a tire that I felt more confident on. Now at 20,000+ miles I decided to give the Angel GT a try. This tire looks great on my bike! It remains to be seen whether they will have the longevity that I saw with the Pilot but I definitely feel confident leaning on this tire. The grip is a little better than the Pilot in my opinion, they have a nice solid feel when leaning into turns. I have a feeling I'll be going back with this tire again. I love the feel of the bike on this tire so if I can get decent wear life on the tire I'll be a very happy man.

live long and prosper
8000 miles on a liter sport bike in Colorado twisties, and just getting to the point of needing a new rear. Front could still go another few thousand. slow to heat, and quick to cool so theyre not a track day tire, but you can still get a knee down with confidence and good feel. You can get a bit more grip, and Knifes edge handling from other tires, but theyd be hard pressed to last as long. Warm em up before hitting the turns, or get caught in a sudden down pour. Either situation will leave pleased with these shoes.

Best of Both Worlds
After riding a number of sportbikes, and running track days I was a bit skeptical on how good a sport / sport touring bike could be. The Yamaha FZ1 is a great compromise between sport and tour. The Angel GT tires are the same. They deliver as much grip as any sane person would need on the street, wear very well, and give good feedback while riding.

I've put about 1,500 miles on my set and have not had any issues with grip. The feel they have give confidence to roll through corners and never think twice about your tire choice. Can't say too much about wear except that they still look new, with only slight, visible signs of any wear. I don't ride much in the rain, but have been caught out once or twice, again....no issues with wet grip. I do ride much more conservatively whenever it rains, but that's just common sense.

I like the feel of the profile of the tire. Rolling in and out of corners is spot on. Mid corner stability is also very good. Recommended pressure for my bike is 42psi, and I've found that they feel best at that pressure or just above.

I'd recommend to anyone who wants basically a sport tire that wears like a touring tire.

Outstanding tires
First of all, I love Pirelli Angel tires. I have a sport touring bike and I have been riding on Pirelli Angel ST's. I got approximately 9000 miles out of the rear tire, and about the same on the front. The Angel GT A spec is perfect for a heavier bike, but the standard GT is aimed at a lighter sport bike. What do I like best about the Pirelli Angels? Handling. The transition from full left to full right and back is amazingly effortless and sure footed. The Angel GT's have the bonus of being dual compound tires which will add plenty of miles to the life of the tire. I have ridden Bridgestones, Dunlops, Metzlers, and one set of Michellin PR2's and I absolutely prefer the Pirelli's. Tire preference is like Art...what one person loves, another hates, lol. But I heartily recommend these tires.

Best grip and life so far!
I've only had the Angel GT on the rear of my s1000RR for a couple months now, but I can tell you this, it doesn't get slimy feeling in the hot weather like the road 4's and it has lasted longer than my continental sport Attack 2 by far. I've put about 3-4 thousand on it already and it doesn't even look like it has worn at all, and I am not one to just putt around town or be in the back of the group ever. I am definetly going to get this tire again unless another longer lasting stickier tire is invented any time soon.

Good replacement tire on a K1600
I replaced the stock Z8s with a pair of the Angel GTs. I went with the "A Spec" given the bike's weight. Turn-in is vastly improved over the Z8s, as is steady-state cornering. The big K-bike will never be a ballerina on a winding road, but the Angel GTs make it feel like it's lost a hundred pounds.

I haven't been caught in a real frog-strangler yet, but in moderate rain the wet grip is again far superior to the Z8s. They get a little tricky on tar snakes and wet pavement marking paint, but most tires do.

I've got a little over a thousand miles on them, and they seem to be wearing reasonably well, though they've picked up a bit of a harmonic just off the center of the tread. I've been vigilant about inflation, so that's a little troubling.

Still and all, these are a great tire for one who tends to ride a bit aggressively on mountain roads.

Doesn't get any better
I've had these tires for almost 3000 miles now. I've ridden in rain, I've done long rides, fast rides, short rides and everything between. Some of the previous tires I've used are: Metzler Sportecs, Pilot Powers and 2CTS, Pilot road 3s and 4s,

These are the best tires I've ever had.

They still look brand new. 3000 miles and they look new. You'd be replacing other tires at this mileage. And grip? I am more than capable of dragging knee regularly on these tires. They have more grip than you will ever need on the road. I can't speak for track use, but for road, they have more than enough. Turn in? Stability? These tires feel fantastic. They make it easy to flick into a corner and they stay right where you left it. No fighting them mid corner, no spinning up the rear. It's simple point and shoot.

Insane bang for your buck tire. I expect these to last over 7500 miles. My bike is only a 600cc sport, so bigger/more powerful bikes may differ, but wow, these tires are fantastic.
