PR3, they have been ok. I'm looking forward to moving on to the PR4s.

I'm in the market too for a fresh set and I have my mind set on Dunlop Roadsmart III .. the II's were excellent in both grip and durability, and the reviews are looking even better for the 3rd series.

Dunlop make good motorbike tires, I've had the Roadsmart II's on since 2012 .. they lasted 27000 km, that's about 17000 miles and still have some breath in them, that's why I'm willing to try out their 3rd series, hopefully they will be just as good.

An alternative for me would be the Metzeler roadtec z8 .. it's now down to asthetics really between the two.

I rarely, if ever ride in the rain .. so the PR4's with all their grooves and nodes are unnecessary for me, and I know this may sound silly .. but I really don't like the look of them .

Touring but, it doesnt really matter much in the price. The kat is a touring bike after all. The GT version came out some time after the touring version.
