    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

    Not bad... as a MC tire goes... nothing spectacular... just not bad...

    0 3/5 Bubba_in_TX - See all my reviews This review is from: Shinko 230 Tour Master Front Tire - 130/90V-16/-- (Automotive) I have been using Shinko Tourmaster tires for a few years now. I have them on 2 Yamaha 100 SIlverado's, a Yamaha 650 Custom, two yamaha mopeds, a 400cc Yamaha Scooter (Majesty) and a 2011 Kawasaki 1700 Voyager. Depending on the bike and the weight of it is how your mileage will go. They dont last long on the 400cc Scooter.... but they are only like 30 bucks each.I can get about 12k on the Yamaha street bikes but only 7k on the 1700 Voyager. But for the price the Shinko is the best buy for your money as other MC tires cost almost 200 bucks now. And since it is the front... easy to change. (I have my own tire changer and balancer)So I can live with a short front tire life and put on a new one every 3 months. I buy 3 at a time. The rear tire on my Voyager is a car tire and I will get around 28-30k out of it for the 100 bucks that cost.Buy the way, it is cheaper in here than on ebay... 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 31, 2014

    Great tire at a great price

    0 5/5 David G "PSG" - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Shinko 230 Tour Master Front Tire - 130/90V-16/-- (Automotive) Purchased a Shinko Tour Master for the first time to go on the rear of my Kaw VN900LT, I replaced a metzeler due to the price of around $200. I rode all last year on the Shinko and can not find a single issue with it, As good a ride and handling that I had with my Metzeler for less than half the price. I have not seen any noticeable wear after 3,000 miles. I will be buying one for the front this year. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 20, 2014

    great tires at a great price.

    0 5/5 Falconbrother "Falcon" (central North Carolina) - See all my reviews This review is from: Shinko 230 Tour Master Front Tire - 130/90V-16/-- (Automotive) I have the Shinko Tour Master on the rear of my old FLHTC Harley and this one on the front. Years ago I mounted my own tires. After finding out how much the dealer wanted for a set of tires (about $700.00 a set) I decided to go back to mounting and balancing my own tires. The Shinkos go on easy and ride nice and are very quiet with very little road noise. I also really like the fact that they are rated for big heavy bikes and have a rain groove right down the middle of the tire. Many modern tires are slick in the center of the tire which I don't trust while riding in the rain. Plus, my old bike has tapered roller bearings in the wheels that need to be greased at every tire change. Mounting these tires myself allows me to be sure that it's done right. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 5, 2014
