No I haven't, but interested in why you're interested in the 2 over the 3. What do you know ?.

My error I did mean the 3

I have the diablo 2s and they don't last long but are very good so its the dunlop or the diablo 3

difficult choice

I've got the Bridgestones, and am very impressed with them.

Michelin Pilot Road 4's for me when my Diablos are shot.  Had PR3's on my last bikes and they are brilliant.  PR4's even better I've heard.

Had PR4 on the GSA great tyre but not for the XR imo
Brilliant in the wet but puncture prone and maybe a little too tour orientated

Ive got the Bridgestones on mine, nothing wrong they seem to work well bit its just they are ........well.......Bridgestones and I don't really like them; we've all got our favoured manufacturer. For me Dunlop on their site they only recommend the powersport which show the sport side of the XR. Even odder Michelin have no recommendation on their site..........yet. Still by the reports coming I'll have the B's for at least the first tour.

I still have the original Bridgestones on mine but when they have gone it will be Dunlops which is what I use on other bikes as well in various combos,for travelling its a Road Smart on the back with a Sport Smart on the front or riding in the UK Sport Smarts F and R,but!!! I've two sets of RoadSmarts 3's in the garage for other stuff and they are certainly different from the 1 and 2 with a lot more pattern and a softer compound so they will almost certainly be different.

Another vote for the Michelin Pilot Road 4. Excellent tyres & especially good in the wet. Very good wear rate too. I had them fitted to my HP2S.
