i am running 207RR and i love them. they are soft and you can just feel the tire sticking. they wear alittle quicker thou. better for the serious canyon rider. my next tire will be the full 208GP's. i know they will be even better.previously had BT 010's and can't say allot for them. I mean everday around town riding there cool but i am always in the canyons triing to kill myself or give me a good reason to repaint my fairings from road scraping. do not get these if you are going to be riding aggresively. front tire too sketchy while the rear is squirrely. and that is with a full race tech set up suspension. price wise the 207's are fine but spend the extra cash for 207RR's and you'll never go back. or stay sraight up for that matter.hahahaLOL

sportec M1.... all i have to say about them is what is mostly known, warm up fast, very sticky, somewhat short life, overall great street tire.

Race is nice too!

Takes a little longer to warm up, but a very aggressive tire once warmed up.....

A wise man once said worrying is like sitting in a rocking, it gives ya something to do, but doesn't soplve the problem!!!

I used Sportec M1s before and was very happy with the feel of them , being an aggressive canyon carver they served me well. The only problem I found is that they wear out Really quick for my taste and pocket.

I am giving a try to 207s now, so far so good, the tire feels different than M1 for sure. You can feel 207 constantly sliding a tiny bit when riding hard, while M1 was sticking like glue.
