I don't mind them. Even after they wore out, I replaced them with stock. They last forever. For street riding I think they are OK. I also rode on Ortega highway (twisty) and honestly went faster on both my old CBR250R and the 300 than my old GSXR. I do have problems in the wet or when it is extremely cold out. They get slippy. I take it easy. If tires weren't so expensive and I could put them on myself, I would get other sticky rubber, but for a majority of street and back road riding, the IRCs are great. Probably not a popular opinion :)

Like the rim tape, nice and subtle.
Ive done 12k on the Road winners, on my 250R & now the 300. A mix of touring, sports riding and track days.
I think they are actually really good value for money and perform pretty decently for a stock tire. Once warm you can push them with confidence and I've had them 'ball up' on the sides at a track day when pushed hard with out letting go.
Obviously they are designed to give reasonable milage so they're never gonna be a super sticky soft compound tire, hence the tendency when cold/wet to slip a little.
Having said all of that I do have a set of Michelin PSR's in the cupboard waiting to be fitted once the IRC's are stuffed! I'm curious to try out a radial tire on the 300. But if I was strapped for cash I would buy another set of IRC's.

As a new rider with a little over 2k miles on the stock tires so far, I've been satisfied. It may be a long while but I plan on replacing with same rubber when it's time.
