Gotta love these tyres!
I did a 48 state cross country trip on my ZX-9 and these tyres made it from start to finish! Had to replace the front when I got home due to a nail. I put over 26,000 miles on one set of tyres and the rear is still goin strong

PROS: Smooth ride, Long tread life, Great traction

Great tires for the price.
I use the tires on my sv650 for rides through the hills where I live. A few great features about these tires are, One their pretty inexpensive for a sport tire, the tires are (M/C) med compound. Roll from edge to edge are easy and smooth, and is a very controllable ride. It doesnt take a lot of weights to balnce the wheels after mounting. Because their radial tires warm up is about 10 mins. These are not track day tires and I would go to their Stealth, Verge, or Apex for that. Whats no so great, trying to mount these things are tough. They have a very stiff side wall, which in turn makes them a little hash on rough roads. Over all I have about 500 miles on them with no issues over all.

Nice Stick for a inexpensive price.
So far I've put 400 miles on the tires. The ride is very smooth, when I balanced the tires they didn't take much weight. The Shinko's stick pretty well once you wear off the molding release. I can roll almost edge to edge without losing grip. I was a little worried at first because they were so inexpensive, but soon forgot the cost and I was very impressed by how well they handled.

PROS: Inexpensive, Smooth ride, Good road stick

CONS: None so far

BEST USES: Street, Touring

Great Tires
These tires are awesome. Good traction all around in my opinion. I had these on my CBR 1000. I Do a lot of hard riding with friends and these tires stood up to the beatings I threw at them. I commute 52 miles one way to work every third day and these tires held up nice. I got 16,xxx plus m iles out of the rear and 21,xxx out of the front. just replaced the Raven's with the Shinko Advanced.... Hope these tires hold up and handle just as good.

My third set
These have never failed to stick once scuffed in. They do have a lot of mold release so be careful for the first few hundred miles, I am not exagerating. Also very good for street tire in gravel. Rear 8K miles, front about 11 to 12K

PROS: Good Cornering, Durable, Good Ride

best bang for your buck
Cycle Gear has a tire for all your basic riding experiences, not to mention on the track as well. That being said all though this tire isn't the most expensive or best suited for track preformance it is a great inexpensive tire for quick repairs. It has a decent tire life for daily use (I exclusively ride motorcycles for commuting and for work) and doesn't look half bad either. No problems what so ever and plan on getting a second spare just in case.

PROS: Good Ride, Good Cornering, Easy To Install

CONS: Wears Easily

BEST USES: Replacement, Emergencies, Street Riding

I have just returned from Sturgis and put over 3,000 miles on the pair and there is only light visable wear on the tread. I ride a Bandit 1250 which has eaten up Michelins and Dunlops within 4,500 to 5,000 miles. I expect to easily get 8,000 to 10,000 out of these. Also due to the front tread pattern I do not see any possibility of cupping that was common with softer Michelins. Remember that they do not grip as well as more expensive tires until they warm up a bit, then they are fine. These are a bargain tire. Don't be afraid to try them!

PROS: Smooth running, Long Lasting

CONS: Need to warm up a bit

BEST USES: Commuting, Sport Touring

Very Good Sport Touring Tire
I use these tires on a ZZR1200, a bike with 145 RWHP and 91 lbs of torque. We rode two-up and often at max GVWR. This is the best tire I have found for this combination of riding. If you have less weight or less HP it will be even better. It is a "W" rated carcass for up to 168 mph continuous. It also rides really well. A great combination and features and performance. Match with the Raven 009 front for even better performance.

PROS: Good Cornering, Good For High Hp Bikes, Good Ride, Versatile, Durable

CONS: None

BEST USES: Sport Touring Bikes, Replacement, Street Riding, Upgrade
