    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

    Fantastic Tire!

    0 5/5 Armyvet1970 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Kenda Kruz K673 Motorcycle Street Rear Tire - 170/80H-15 (Automotive) Wasnt sure if i should buy these cause price was kinda low but let me tell ya Wow these are great tires! I installed thesew on my Honda Ace and what a differtence these tires made. I was running Dunlops 404 which i completely hated! Kendas is really a good tire and at the price why wouldnt you buy them? I read somne reviews about tire being bouncy etc. Well i havent had any issue as far as bouncy on the road. They ARE SMOOTH and can really handle some cornering. I cant say anything about rain but will update once i can. If your looking for a greatr tire at a really good price then Buy Kenda cause why waste money on a tire just for its name? Kenda tires are made in the same plant as Avon for those who didnt know that. Best buy for my Bike next to my mustang seat that is :) ** Update*** been caught in two big rain storms and these tires handle Superbly! I am now and will be a kenda Motorcycle tire buying man! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 4, 2014

    Great tires

    0 5/5 FDK (HAWKINS, TEXAS, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Kenda Kruz K673 Motorcycle Street Front Tire - 150/80H16 (Automotive) I love this tire. I first used one on my Vtx 1800 due to the fact Dunnys wouldn't last more than 2k miles under it. I had well over 4k miles on it when I sold the bike and it still looked better than a Dunny with 500 miles. I now have a set of them on my ultra classic and they perform great. Had a good rear on my bike but front was about gone so used that to get both. Will NEVER run anything else as long as Kenda keeps doing it right and for the right price. I got both tires for a lot less than a set of Dunlop would cost. If you want your tire to say Harley Davidson on the side stick with the Dunnys. Only warning is if possible clean the tires before you mount them or be careful. the coating on them is very slick when brand new.Nothing a little smart riding will not fix. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 13, 2012

    Best Motorcycle Tire Ive Ever Had On Any Bike Ive Ever Owned

    0 5/5 david hodges - See all my reviews This review is from: Kenda Kruz K673 Motorcycle Street Rear Tire - 170/80H-15 (Automotive) I Own A 05 Honda Shadow Spirit 750DC. I Was Very Disappointed With The Original Bridgestone Tires That Came With The Bike. Had Original Tires Twice, Once From Factory And Replaced Once, Both Times Got Around 8,000 Miles, Both Times The Front Tire Cupped Badly So I Was Positive I Wanted To Try Another Tire. I Searched Google Until I Came Across An Ad For The Kenda K673, Stated 40,000 Mile Bike Tire, Reviews Were Great, Price Was In Budget Defiantly So I Ordered A Set From J & P Cycles And Had Installed On Bike. I Am So Glad I Decided On These Tires, No "Break In" Needed As With Many Tires, The Smoothest Riding Bike Tire I've Ever Ridden On In My 45 Years On Any Bike. These Tires Grip In Corners, Have No Tire Noise. As For Tire Tread Life That's To Be Seen, Even If Come Up Short As Expected I Will Be Pleased And Brag On These Tires. If Only Could Get For My Other Vehicles. Good Job Kenda Tire Company, You Have Earned A Fan For Life. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 22, 2014

    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

    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.
