Here's an older vid from FortNine about the RoadSmart (older version) but you'll get the gist ...
I'm all for avoiding dumb stuff on the streets, actually anywhere, anytime. Like all tires there is a sweet spot for settings and I never had a problem getting feedback from S21/S22 tires long before the N1K and the cornering aids. I'm not arguing that Dunlops present the best feedback for you and your riding. However, at this point for me, I'm more comfortable with the Hypersports because I have so many more miles on them with several different bikes. I may never get the RS4's to the edge point of the S22's because I'm not riding that style on the streets anymore and I doubt I will have an opportunity to hit the track in the next few years. With that said, I'm not disappointed in the RS4's.Well the S22s are in the hypersport department, so I wouldn't be surprised if they had better grip, but feedback?? naaaah never, nothing beats Dunlops in that department I guess. I was used to putting M9RRs and Diablo Rossos/Corsa2s on my bikes and that was a big mistake for my kind of skills, cause I always tried to find their limits and found myself in multiple occasions saved by the cornering abs. Morale of the story? I'm better having a tire with less grip and you hone your skills within that range and also limit yourself from doing dumb stuff in the streets xD
I didn't measure on the wear indicators, rather directly at the bottom with multiple measurements and came out with an average depth for both cases. I think the wear indicator is at a height of 1.5-1.6 mm which need to be added to your numbers if I understood you correctly.That sounds pretty close to my wear, if adjusting for the mileage difference (I'm at 5.1 km) and I haven't been aggressively riding these tires. I found two wear indicators, the one closest to the centerline reads 3.7 mm and the one that is off center (but not at the edge) is 4.7 mm.
