Cycletraders have 'B' rated PR3's
I checked with Cycletraders in Takapuna and they have 'B' rated PR3's (rear) so that is what I am going to try next. I see a lot of positive comments on PR3 handling in the rain, not so positive comments on the wear pattern of PR2's where the compounds join (probably similar on PR3s).
Yes, pretty happy with Experience, did try and buy from them, but the RT on offer wasn't to my liking (though a beautiful looking bike) and they had no 2nd hand GS's or GT's so when one came up, it was in Wellington. I try and support the dealer, especially with a brand like BMW with so little representation. I have forked out plenty of the folding stuff there on the LT so they weren't too unhappy, me having talked with them first.
I did join the BMWOR (it has lapsed), but I am kinda not usually into group rides. I do like riding with one, maybe two others on occasion though... I find the difference in riding styles, distance expectations and how to handle double-yellows and lanesplitting varies greatly.
