    Hi
    Do you think the standard Metzeler rodtrc 01 ‘s will be ok for track day?

    Thanks

    Andrew

    They'll work okay.

    A pair of sportier tyres will be better, but only if you have the ability to stretch them.

    The 01s will be fine - you just ride to them.

    Think:  "I have an S1000XR - will it be okay for a track day?" 

    "No mate - you'd be better with an S1000RR"

    Either work. :028:
