rode up to manchester from haverfordwest 220 miles ish on Sunday and back on Monday afternoon. Down the middle of Wales to newtown then to Aberwrystwith and coast road. Had all kinds of weather from dry sunny, misty rain and wind to torrential rain and hail storms!!!, also massive side winds gusting to 50 mph through mid Wales. Pilot 3's front and back never a twitchy moment perfect grip and totally stable at all speeds fast a road to motorway, cant recommend them enough.Both have done about 4 k and not showing any signs of excessive wear. Great tyre great handling nuff said

I use Pirelli Diablo Strada at £139.99 per pair plus fitting. Seem okay to me on my daily 90 mile round trip in all but the most severe weathers.

Got a zzr12 with a bt021 ( brand new) at the back and a worn out bt020 on the front. If I put a new bt021 on the front, will theses be good for all weather types?

I work for a motorcycle service centre and I would never recommend bt021's to anyone as they are utterly shocking. Bridgestone quickly realised this and replaced them with the far superior 023, now superseded by the T-30. Having run numerous big sports tourers including zzr1100's with the truly awful 021's I would suggest the following: change the front for a BT023 wear out the rear, it won't take long, then match up the rear with the front. As a note in point i will be fitting Continental Road Attack 2 evos to my zzr1200 ready for the spring. It has Dunlops fitted currently which have been mistakenly fitted by the previous owner as they are not the correct load rating for the bike.
