    After 5500 miles Pirellis are past their best and and a trip to the Vosge mountains later in the month means it's time for some new rubber, pair of Dunlop Roadsmart IV ordered hopefully have time to get fitted next week and scrubbed in before heading to France in a couple of weeks.
    Had Roadsmarts on my Kawasaki Z1000SZ and really rated them so will be interesting to see how they suit the Multi

    Hello Teaboy! Like you I have owned the Z1000SX and run an earlier version of the Roadsmart tyres. Very interesting to know of another rider who moved from the Z1000SX to the Multistrada 950! I had modded my Z to the gills and Iím not talking of cosmetic upgrades. But a chance test ride on the Multistrada 950 S and I had absolute clarity on my path ahead! Out went the Z1000SX and in came the beautiful Multistrada 950 S.

    The early version of the Roadsmart tyres I had used had great grip and easy turn-in/leaning. I do remember that they wore out rather rapidly with aggressive riding.

    Still on holiday in France but a quick update, over 1200 miles on the Dunlops now and I'm extremely leased with them, handling is lighter than on Pirellis, all the grip you could ever need

    What a strange question!!!!!! What you are looking at is the Dunlop logo as with all text reads left to right so faces opposite way on each side of tyre
    Direction arrow clearly marked and you an rest assured my tyre supplier is not a muppet  :745:
