Just returned from a ride in Arkansas with a RS-II on the back.
Was pretty impressed by the tire.
Actually, I was pretty very impressed by the tire {for the low $$ I spent for it!!}
Ordered another rear already...

Will install front soon.

Ride safe, Ted

I'll 2nd Teds comment. We checked his tire wear when we returned from some aggressive twisties and they showed no cupping as with many other brands. The tread grooves are spaced much further apart than any other tire I have seen. My Avon Spirit ST was feathered very badly running the same roads and tire pressure. Looks like the RS2 may be my next set as well. We are tough on tires when we go to Arkansas.

Here is images of the tires. Kinda similar to Metzler PR-2's.
Price is outstanding..
If I understand right the Reintroduced Roadsmart II's are the same Compound as the Roadsmart III {but I may not be correct on that}
