    Great Tires! Great Service!

    0 5/5 robert loera - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CONTINENTAL MOTION Tire Set 120/70zr17 Front & 190/50zr17 Rear 190 50 17 120 70 17 2 Tire Set I was a little unsure about wether to order Continental Tires or not because I've never heard anything about them good or bad. But after having them in my hands and seeing the quaility and construction, I'm very impressed indeed! I installed them on a Superbike, a 2007 ZX10R. These tires handle fantastic! The ride is smooth as silk and they grip like a vise! They are very soft, you can dig your finger nails into the rubber so you know right away their gonna grip the road well. I suprised to learn theyy are a German tire, so I guess that's why they are such high quality? I would definatly recommend!!! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 13, 2013

    Great Tire Great Value

    0 5/5 Dave (Michigan) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Shinko 712 Rear Tire - 130/90H-16/Black I have used this Brand and model tire before, this will be my third tire for my third Interstate motorcycle. I have tried other brands (Bridgestone, Dunlop) and they seem to last just as long if not longer then the more expensive brands. I ride hard and fast from state to state and have used this tire in rain and sleet, it handles great. My current bike is a Honda Custom touring bike. On a previous Interstate bike I put on a little over 8,000 miles before I sold it and it still had plenty of meat left. Good cornering, good ride, I rate this as a good value. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 6, 2011

    Worth more than I paid

    I have been an avid biker for over 30 years and have been through a lot of tires. 95% of those that claim to be "high mileage" end up being no better than any other. Truth be know is that there is NO holy grail when it comes to tires. Bottom line is there are three factors that determine tire wear/life, and that's rider & cargo weight, riding style and the bike itself. Of course any tire will last longer on a lightweight jap bike than it would on a Harley as I have (and I weigh 274 lbs). Proper inflation is also a key to tire wear. So unless the reviewer reveals some or all of this info, take it with a spoon of salt. I have purchased numerous brands and they have lasted almost the same (4500-5500 mi). This tire is no exception but for one thing, and that is the price. DEFINITELY a bargain. Delivery was way fast (3 days ahead of schedule). Tread pattern is good looking and functional. Wears evenly and is well balanced. Out preforms tires 3 times the price. Will definitely... 5/5 Mike frady - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    No issues at 300 miles.

    0 4/5 Levi Q (Charlotte, NC) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Michelin Pilot Power Motorcycle Tire Hp/Track Front 120/70-17 (Automotive) Only ridden about 300 miles so far on what is my first front tire in new condition. Far superior to the 2006 factory tire I had for a Suzuki SV1000. The last tire was pretty well worn at 8500 miles when I replaced it.The turn-in the old tire imposed on the rider is gone. The Michelin Pilot makes the front end feel heavier, wider and (most important) stickier. Great balance and control. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 29, 2013

    So far so good...

    0 5/5 dukey (Texas) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) I tried this tire based on some chatter I saw about how good it was for grip with decent treadlife. I am using it on a heavy bike, so it may not last as long as if it were on a light sportbike but it mounted up well and didn't need but 1/2 ounce to balance it. It rides smooth, but does seem louder than the Michelin PR2 it replaces.Finally, Smith Family Powersports shipped very quickly. The tire was on my doorstep in just a couple of days. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 4, 2013

    13,000 Miles and Counting

    0 5/5 Ray Rockwood - See all my reviews This review is from: Continental ContiMotion Sport/Touring Motorcycle Tire Rear 160/60-17 (Automotive) Bike- 2009 Kawasaki Ninja 650RRiding conditions- Mostly summer touring and some commutingI am thoroughly impressed with these tires. My front is just approaching the wear bars and the rear appears to have another 1-2k of life. Mileage has been accrued under relatively modest riding with little payload, but their overall life is surprising nonetheless. I cannot find any glaring faults with these tires. I did notice some slippage during cold weather riding (30 degrees or so) but under normal circumstances they get up to temp quickly and have plenty of traction.When taking the ContiMotion's excellent tread life and low price into consideration, why take a gamble with another brand of tire? I will surely mount another set of these in the future. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 22, 2014

You meet the coolest folks on vacation. Our last night in Estes Park we had a group of bikers next door and below us. We got to kidding about making noise (I later found out they were given a 9pm "quiet time" and we weren't. Kind of hurt my feelings). They had some of the coolest bikes. With the owner's permission I got a few shots that night.
