After almost 4500 miles, the RR’s Pirelli Supercorsa SPs are finally looking and feeling distinctly tired, if you’ll pardon the pun. They’ve held up incredibly well, but are now borderline bald in the central band on the rear, and have squared enough that at certain lean angles on or off the throttle, they shimmy across the ridge. What a stunning tyre though – an all-time favourite. I’m replacing them with Metzeler Racetec RR K3s. I’ll let you know how we get on.
Miles to date: 4408
