Af­ter 2500 miles on the OE Con­ti­nen­tal Con­ti­at­tack SM tyres it was time for a change. A lot of mo­tor­way rid­ing meant the rear was start­ing to square. As I use the Husky ev­ery day, some good-inall-weather tyres would have been the sen­si­ble choice, but the word ‘sen­si­ble’ isn’t in the su­per­moto dic­tionary so I went with a set of Met­zeler Racetec RR K3s. They ex­celled in­stantly. I’d been wor­ried I wouldn’t be able to get the tyres hot and keep them there, but a quick touch af­ter my ride re­vealed they were more than up to tem­per­a­ture. The twisty route to work beck­ons.
