Yeah i find them pretty good on the road, im no expert in the twisties tho. But saying that ive got mates that use them at track days and they love them. They arnt the greatest tyre for wet riding and they do wear a bit quicker than normal tyres (proberly on par with super sticky road tyres tho) Give them a try, i pay about $175 for a 190/55/17 im not sure about other places.

I run 2ct michi sticky thangs damn they good every time after warm up 5 mins max NICE !!!!! Got pilot power on my motard GREAT SHIT !!!! Corners rule !!!!!!

I have used them on the road and on the strip. The are incredible on the strip and very good on the road once they are warmed up but to say that they wear a bit quicker than the average tyre is an understatement. My last rear lasted 3000 k's and the one before that that was on when we landed in Brissy for AFR last year lasted about 1500 when Rocket, Billy and Moz started push'n the pace a bit over mount Glorious.

Long live plastic? (I am a fan of faired sportsbikes) how long !!! (Although I am unsure as to how much longer they will be around due to the awesomeness of the naked bikes)

Hey Bullfrog,that tyre wear rate has nothin to do with rocket ,the wizz or me its all to do with the old school traction control fitted to your 1400 ,its that round black tube on the right handle bar..and suprisingly the faster you turn it the faster the shinko dissapears.and in some cases it makes the bike wiggle in excitement....you have no idea how much i want to be on the ride to AFR.

from memory it was an older design from one of the reputable manufacturers to start off with and then shinko had adopted the design. for some reason i remember dunlop.

now it has come full circle and its back for the 3rd time around :D
