    I've made the switch. Much like you I've had great results with the michelins. Averaging about 12 to 15k on the last rear and 30k on the front. I changed over to the T30's after reading rollins ride report. Im happy to relate the same results good mileage so far and very good traction. We'll find out how they react to tar snakes here soon as we're getting back to our normal 90's now.
    Tip in with these is a lot easier than the PR's not scary but you don't need to work it you just think your line and they go. So be csreful the first couple time turning in these don't require as much input for response. You'll find it easier to drop in tight if you need now but they don't feel vague when pushed so far as i have found.
    Maplexx and GinaMcD like this.
    Route 191 formerly Route 666 Some say that this section of the
    road has 1100 curves in 95 miles.

    So I use a lot of different tires, and I change them all before they reach 3000 miles/5000 kilometers. I do that because it doesn't cost me that much, and I want (need) to know the difference. This year I've hardly driven any of them, so don't know too much about the newest tires on the Blackbird.
    But for now I prefer the Dunlop Sportsmart 2. The new version of this tire will be available here in 2 weeks (Dunlop Sportsmart 2 Max).
    This tire is a great compromise between a track-tire and a touring tire.
    Early next year I will be going to Dunlop in the South of France to test them myself on the roads and on the track.
    I hope this ends better than last time when I crashed and had 20 fractures. I totalled their bike too.....
    Any news on the sportsmart 2? and Bee's Icouldn't find rollins report on the t30/t30evo/t30gt. Seems we have three types of t30 or I'm reading it wrong. I still have plenty of tread on the m7rr's, I'm hoping to wear the sides out by the end of summer if i can get some seat time. Not looking for a high mileage tire.

    Re: Honda Super Blackbird tire preference 2016

    Thanks Gina and Bees, was up watching some videos on the tires. I may try one of the dunlops, sell the pr4's that are my extra set of wheels I only have a few 100 miles on them.
