    Don't think you've done your poll correctly  :164:

    On the tyre front maybe the metzeler pips the road 5 but they are both great tyres (imo) .

    Not sure if you're still looking, but I got a pair of Michelin Pilot Road 4 GT Tires recently and while I can't say if they are better or worse than anything than the stock donlops (significantly better that those) they are great tires so far.

    I went with Michelin Power 5s. Great tyre all around. On the spec sheet not as sticky in wet and also a tad higher treadwear rating but also were cheaper the Road 5s and 6s. Metzlers are good tyres, came stock on my KTM but real world treadwear hurts more than Michelins.

    Having not tried the Metzelerís, I canít give an opinion on them. Regarding the road 5ís, after having problems with several sets of them, Iím with MZ900 on this one and wonít use them again. Another option to consider that seem underrated, but highly praised by those that do use them, is the Continental road attack 3 or the newer road attack 4.
