Fantastic tire.

I ran Angel STs on my Sprint, and fell in love with Pirelli tires at that point, and have been running Pirellis ever since.

I can't get the Angels as a set (no front in the TEX size), so I went with the Scorpion Trail 2s.

I like them better than the Tourance Next stockers.  No more road noise!

They stick great wet or dry.

I totally and fully agree.  :305:

I used nothing but Pirelli Angels on my Blackbird so Pirelli tyres are fine by me. Scorpions it is next.  :002:

I've just read a discussion about the Scorpion Trail 2 on the Tex elsewhere and a number of people were saying they suffered from wobble on deceleration which is a bit offputting. Has anyone here succered with that ? I'd be fitting them before heading to the Picos later in the year and the last thing I'd want is to dis over a wobble.

I’ve run through two sets of the Scorpion Trail II tires. Zero issues with mine. Very good tire.
Ride safe, and ride often!

After a few sets of Anakee 3s on my gen1, went for Scorpion Trail 2s on my gen3.
Haven't done much wet riding, but seem good in the dry.
No wobble on deceleration here.
(Currently putting another few thou k's on them doing a Ulysses club national Rally.)

I love mine.

No issues.

Just installed my 2nd rear.  Front was still good when I put a hole in the rear.
