    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

    Greatest tire ever!

    I have a complete set of these to replace my bald front tire and squared, ancient rear tire on my 2007 Kawasaki ZZR600. I can't review them as a pair, so each product page will get the same review. You should always replace tires as a matched set anyway. Amazon shipped these INCREDIBLY quickly, all the way out to Maui within just a few days after clicking "confirm". It was by far the fastest shipment I've ever received, all at no extra cost thanks to Amazon Prime!The tires themselves arrived bundled together with straps and I was initially alarmed at the exposure they faced, but an extremely careful inspection yielded no evidence of damage or flaws caused by either shipping or manufacturing. The sidewalls are extremely tough, yet supple enough to permit mounting without resorting to anything extreme. They went on the bike without any surprises, and a quick check for static balance showed no sticky weights were required - spot-on!The tread design is... 5/5 h7886 (Maui, HI) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great Ride

    0 5/5 Dustin Pankonien - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Michelin Pilot Road 3 Motorcycle Tire Sport/Touring Front 120/70-17 (Automotive) Bought these tires after reading many, many reviews. Was a little uneasy after looking at them as they looked to be more of an ATV tire once received compared to the sport bike tires that I had on the R1. After installing them and breaking them in for the first 500 miles took them on a road trip and I think these are the tires that I'm going to stick with for the life of the bike. I've ridden on dunlaps, pirelli as well as a few others and for a highway ride these are what I prefer. They do make a little more noise, like a car tire would. And at first I looked back thinking there was a car right up on me a time or two. But they ride very well.Also if you lay on the throttle when it has been raining you can def tell when you go from the harder rubber to the softer. So be careful out there. It just might send you for a loop if your not careful. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 10, 2013

I thin it is a great deal over the stock Bridgestone tires. Grip is great wet & dry.

    Excellent for my Honda Rebel

    I came outside to find a deflated tire and a screw right through it, and this seemed like a bargain compared to getting another Bridgestone.One thing worried me when it showed up: the tire specifically says 'REAR' on it, not front/rear as advertised here. I read around some forums to see if it would matter, and decided after comparing the roundness of its profile to that of the Bridgestone that any handling difference would be insignificant.Surprise: the bike handles better than before. This is most noticeable in slow turns, and it's not even close.I did the installation myself, having never done one before. Two small tire irons and my body weight--easy business.A couple things to note for Rebel owners. Recommended PSI is 41, versus 29 on the OEM tires. Also, the tire diameter seems slightly larger, based on clearance under the tire guard. This might affect speed/odometer readings, but I haven't tested it.After 200... 5/5 Charles M. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
