Any reason not to get a road 5 instead of replacing the stock tire like for like?

I'll be keeping the rosso in the front until it wears out too, but it seems like the road 5s are just... better in every way except at the extreme end of traction.

One I can think of might be performance on track? If you really are pushing it, might lose a few seconds on track.

I've run Road 5s on my bikes for ages. I feel just as confident on them as I was with the stock tyres. I dont ride on track and live in a pretty wet and rainy place as well as do 13k miles per year commuting so tyre life is a huge one for me.

Get road 6 , quite the best tires if you are not doing racetrack days.
