ran a few sets of gt2 on my little bike, they worked great
was going to run them on the fjr this year, but just pulled the trigger yesterday for another set of pr4, the gt2 were going to be for a mtn trip, and probably still will do that, just use the pr4 around here.

there were a few reports of the front catching concrete grooves, with the 2 lines around the tire... i never had that issue.

I am runing the Angel GTII A on the front at the moment and have about 1500 kms on them. Very happy with them, good feel and feedback, great ride with no following of cracks/ridges/ on the road like the PR4 did. Great grip in wet or dry. I will replace the rear with a GTII when the time comes to replace it.

Cheers

I have presently a GT 11 (A) spec front and a GT (A) rear with approx 6500 miles.
Extrapolating from multiple other GT(A)’s I will see another 3000+ miles to Wear Bar on rear.
The Gt 11 front seems to be wearing a little better than older version. The front wear pattern is somewhat better at same mileage from my notes.
I had no issue with crack following.

50% of my riding is two up and only maybe 5% is interstate. Most miles are not in high ambient temps.

I am of the opinion, that the RS 3 front is still the best Front to date.

Next up is a set of Conti Road attack 3’s

I liked the original Angel GTs better than my Attack 3s. I liked that the Angels needed less input for turning, and the speedo ran true. Wasn't in the rain enough to develop a preference there. The Pirelli tread life was better, too. I'll be going back to Pirelli next tire change.
