Anyone Else Running Pirelli Sport Demons?

Just about to put my 5th rear tyre on my R3, which will be the 4th Sport Demon. Anyone else run these?

I absolutely love them. They hold up great in all weather, been out in heavy frosts, plenty of rain (I'm an all weather, all year rider) and never had a twitch with them (apart from opening up the throttle right on a diesel spill coming off of a roundabout, but all tyres will get upset with that!).

I get good mileage from them, about 3500 miles. They warm up very quickly and get nicely sticky , feel very planted and I've had the chicken strips down to 2mm on them, you can use all the rubber with no worries around tight twisties.

They are now replaced with new model : Pirelli Angel CT
those are old tech biased ply tires-i use them on my triumph thruxton because they are the best tire for the odd size wheels that are on that bike-they are very good,but still old tech.if you like them,stick with them,but there are better tires out there for your R3.
Here's some tires for small displacement bikes.
I went with some Bridgestone S20 EVO in the stock size.
will wear out faster than a touring tire. I care more about grip
