I thought my nexts were ok too apart from a little tramlining.
The 01s though are a far better ride imo.
Less tramlining and turn in better.
Really given me a boost in confidence.
Nexts changed at 8500. Have to see about these.

I just checked my Tourance next tyres f 2.4mm r 4.5mm mileage 7851, as I said rear is a tad squared. Seems daft to bin them with so much tread left. I'm not heavy on tyres, usually loaded up & going places, not squirt & brake.

For serious tramlining you want to try Mich AC10's, I put them on my traillie, they were scary. Didn't wait to wear them out, they were for the bin early days.

Hi mate

I've just changed my standard 'next' tyres for Roadtech 01's after 9000 miles.
They are fantastic! The ride is softer, the bike tips into corners and follows the selected line rather than wandering all over the place. As others have said, a transformation. Bit pricy and probably won't yield the same mileage but who cares.  Would recommend.

Agree - ran the Roadtechs on my previous BMW R1200R and have nothing but praise for them - couldn't even get them out of shape on the occasional heavy cornering/braking during dynamic handling training and they were faultless in the wet.

Surprised at the mileage comment about the Mich Road 5 - got more than 6k out of them on my S1000XR which is banging 165bhp though them. Amazing lean angles and stopping in both wet and dry as a rainy Pyranees mountain trip can testify. They will definitely be my next tyre on the tiger after the Tourance's are done.   :002:

I've recently switched to 01's from the oe, with the 110 front.
Chalk and cheese.
Love them.

Had 01's fitted yesterday and went for a decent test ride this morning on the best twisty roads near me, it was sunny and dry and WOW these tyres are amazing, no chicken strips left showing by the time I got home, i can only guess what they will be like in the wet.
My 2017 XCa has never felt so sure footed and confidence inspiring.
Cheers Jim
