Metzeler racetec tyres?

Just been seeing that metzeler have a 160 65 18 tyre in their range, it's the sticky racetec rr k1 tyre!
Anyone trying it out soon?

Happy New year!
Looking forward to thrashing the tits off the kr this year!
Had a slightly relaxed year on the Kawasaki last year as I bought another project that ended up being quite time consuming but this year it's back to business!

Re: Is it me ?

Haha! I'm late to this debate! The kr Facebook has been good for somethings, meeting some new faces is one of them, but it's also stopping traffic through this very good forum. My bike has greatly benefited from the advice on this forum, but I find if I give advice on Facebook, it's mainly ignored, ...
