Best all-weather tyres for a Honda CBR600RR?

Q. I have just swapped my old Firestorm for a mint CBR600RR, but the problem that I have is with the rubber. I have used Dunlop Sportmaxes for years on the old sports tourer. But the 600RR is running the Bridgestone Battlax BT016, which do not seem to inspire me with confidence, especially in the wet. My friend has recommended ...

Are five-year-old race tyres past their best?

Q. I recently bought a pair of new Metzeler Racetecs off eBay for my track bike. Now it's my own fault because I should have asked how old they were, but when they arrived I realised they were made in 2007.
