I ride a TL1000S that I have set up as a sport touring machine. The stock rear tire size is 190/50 but I usually run a 180/55. I find this profile gives me a more controlled feel when rolling into corners. And then I found that Pirelli offers the Angel GT in a 190/55 so I thought I'd give it a try. By far it is the best tire that I have tried on my TL. I have just about 1500 miles so far and the wear is negligible. I have riden in unbelievable rainstorms, along with a summer of all 90+ degree temperatures. And I don't have one negative thing to say. So if you want a great tire that instills confidence, delivers better than normal mileage, and is a lot of fun to ride on, bite the bullet, spend the money (not the cheapest tire out there) and pick up a set.

I placed this tire last month on the front of my WR250R. I'm not an expert rider so I don't have very nuanced observations about the tire. But the tire seems very planted in my turns and hasn't given me any reason to dislike it. I've ridden it so far in sand, rock, and plain dirt and it rides very well. I haven't had a chance to ride it much in mud really so I can't say much about that. Doesn't fee spongy on the street when turning either. So far I'm quite pleased with the tire.

Tire is average. Short life, decent on road, terrible on loose gravel and fire roads.

Put them on and ran up to the Sierras and had zero issues. Some initial squirreliness on the highway but went away quickly. Cornering was more connected and confidence inspiring than my previous PR3's. Can't speak to wet weather performance yet. So far I'm very pleased with them.

This is the 3rd of 4th time I have used this tire on my "06" Ultra. Driving from Fredericksburg to Northern Virginia on I-95 to and from work puts some serious miles on the bike and tire. They have always preformed well and I have averaged between 8k and 12K worth of miles per year with them. I get even more mileage out of the same style front tire. The last one I ordered, I only got less than 300 miles on before I picked up a self-taping metal screw on the way to work 3 days after having it installed. Ordered another and less than a week later it was installed and running just fine.

6500 miles on my dr650. In comparison, I'm getting 2000 miles from Shinko 700's and 244's rear tires. Tire worked great, wore well, and finally replaced it because I felt guilty, and there was some cupping which did not affect traction. I'm not super aggressive, but I never had front tire traction issues, the tire climbed out of ruts and saved my bacon quite a few times, and generally worked great always. I replaced it with the same tire.
