Remember that time you said you were dragging elbows at track day, but the chicken strips on your tires said otherwise?
Metzeler's new M5 Sportec tires may boast high silica mixtures and multi-tension steel belts, but the feature sure to get tongues wagging is the hash-marked sidewall, complete with pictograms of varying lean angles (and unspoken insinuations about your willingess-- or lack thereof-- to pitch your bike sideways.)
Do these tires make you want to buy a set just to show off your cornering prowess, or would you rather keep your lean angles vague and undocumented?
