    Has anyone experience with the Conti Road Attack 3?
    I have driven 13.000 km with Michelin PR4 and am not satisfied .
    I was pleased with them for about 8,000 km and since they have just gotten worse and worse.
    The bike has become heavy steering and the tire seizes all asphalt strips.
    I would like a tire that is more agile than PR4 and which retains its features.
    On my previous bike I had Metzler M7RR, which I thought was really good, but they did not last for so long.

    Benny, I had the M7RR's on my HP4 which I used on the track and also for touring (honest) and thought they were brilliant as well. In the summer I switched from the PR4's on my RS, which came with the bike, in favour of the Conti's and have loved them. I find the bike much more nimble and easier to steer particularly in tight corners. I don't have any chicken strips left which are a testament to how grippy they are. I can't recommend them enough and funnily enough, they remind me of the M7's in terms of stickiness when warmed up.

    I agree with Andy. Although I didn't want them to start with they turned out to out last the P4 and they felt better under all conditions.:)

    Not in all round grip but you do not need a full blown sport tyre on the RS.

    In contrast, I have Z8 's on mine and hate them, they have never filled me with any confidence, they slide on shiney tarmac on corners without any braking or power on, especially the rear, in the wet they are far worse, on white lines the grip is aweful and left me sliding across a line with both front and back breaking free.

    I can't wait to get back to road pilot 4's, never had any of these issues with them.

    My RS came with the the Road Pilot 4’s which I found confidence inspiring in all conditions. (Even painted road markings in wet weather)
    The Roadtec o1’s currently on my bike have given me a number of ‘little’ scares and one ‘biggie’ (miraculously I managed to stay upright) in wet weather and don’t give me the same level of trust in the dry.
    I too, look forward to going back to the Road Pilot 4’s.
