best tyres ever

I have been through four sets of SPs on my 899. I'm going to Mugello for the motogp and needed some new tyres because my last set were totally finished.

I felt like a change so I went for the Metzeler Racetec RR K2. They cost the same as the SP and I thought how bad could they be?

I cannot believe how much grippier these things are compared to the SPs. I have been flying around all day and these tyres are just amazing, I cannot say enough about them or recommend them highly enough if you are coming to the end of a set yourself.. trust me!!! Best gamble I have ever taken, they are massively confidence inspiring and the bike even seems to brake much harder. I honestly felt like I had four wheels today and that it was basically impossible for me to crash, I never had that feeling on the SPs.

Thanks for the feedback. Good to know about tire experiences due to the limited options for our bike. Shall have to give those a try
