tyres

for all the riders......service mgrs.....parts personnel
long term riders 1st hand anecdotal evidence
opinions & points of view

tyres are getting better

the future will bring tyres more readily adaptable
to motorcycle power....weight...riding style etc
provide near seamless transitions throughout
most of the average situations & circumstances
encountered

all to be encouraged

while i have the cut/thrust rapier style bikes in my garage
putting trackday/sticky rubber them is a no brainer

putting 2-3 thousand mile rubber on my k12rs is
counterproductive
wuld result in 4-5 sets a year
& sometimes starting out on thursday/fri & needing new tyres mon/tues

that range of mileage would not get me thru
a vacation & most weekends
yet putting on tractor like .....18wheeler compound rubber
on my bimota would be foolish

good that we have choices
good choices will be made

for each & everyone be safe & enjoy



good luck

Re: tyres

All I can say is you spelled it wrong. It's Tires, not tyres.
