Iíve used Angel GTs almost exclusively on my GTL and XR (A-spec on the GTL), but mounted a set of RS3s for the TTD. Riding mostly 2-up, we destroyed the rear in 1083 miles - worst cupping any of us had ever seen on a tire (Iíll post a pic next week). Even new, the RS3s didnít feel as planted as the Angel GTs - the front was less stable under braking, and the rear squirmed a bit under acceleration.
My only complaint with the Angel GTs is the narrow profile of the front tire, which then becomes pointed quickly in the twisties. I have a set of Angel GT 2s on the XR, and the front has a much rounder profile than the original. The 2s have the same great grip in both wet and dry conditions, and at 1200 miles, they are wearing better than the originals. Iíve ordered a set of A-specs for the GTL and will provide an update at the end of their lifespan.
