    Great grip, needed a little warm up
    These grip as well as expected. They need about a mile or so to warm up. Mind you, I leave about 7 a.m. in 50 degree weather so take that into account. My ZX9R has 130 hp and when the tire is cold, they will slip around a bit. I didn't take these in the rain, but when I hit a puddle, they would initial let go. When they get rid of most of the water (ten or twenty feet) they grip again. So take it easy in the wet. Sold the bike, so not sure about longevity.

    Excellent sport bike tire
    The M5 is my go-to tire for my Speed Triple. The grip and overall handling is excellent for sport riding. You won't be disappointed!

    Great tire and killer mileage for being so sticky
    I have had these one for almost 5000 miles and still have half tread left. The center hardly wears down after many road trips on these and the sides inspire confidence in the mountain twisties. I have always been a M3 fan and am in love with these. I will continue to use these time after time.

    Bad Luck ???
    I had two sets of these and was pretty happy with them until i punctured the rear after 1,500 ks.So i replaced it with another and yep this rear also punctured after 2,000 ks.So dont know about mileage but up until i destroyed 2 rear tyres in 3,500 i decieded this must be an omen so i switched to dunlops and bridgestones,yep no more punctures

    Dissappointed
    I have been running the M3's for years and have really liked them (see that review). I was expecting the M5 to be better, better feel, better grip, better mileage (given the hype and its sales presentation). Well I have to say for the extra money per set, they didn't grip any better, they didn't last any longer, they didn't seem to do anything differently than the M3 did. It is an excellent tire, but mileage was still the same as an M3, So I will stick with the M3.

    Sportec is that good
    This is an awesome tyre in both wet and dry. Have these tryes on my BMW S1000rr and the just hold in so well. Mind you turn the traction control off and unleash there full potential. The hold in so well at what ever lean angle. You wont be sorry buying a set of these tyres.
