I finally got around to getting myself some decent tyres for my ninja 300. After 10,000k's on the IRC Roadwinners that came on the (my god am I glad to be rid of them) I decided to go with the Michelin Pilot Street Radials (in stock sizes still). I decided to go with the Michelin's instead of say Pirelli Diablo Rosso II'S or BT003'S for a little extra life span. Might go with something a bit stickier in future when looking into track days etc, but for now these are perfect. After my first proper ride on them last weekend (only about 200k's on them atm) I noticed the difference as soon as I got on the bike. Much better feedback at all times and once they're warm they just feel as if they have grip for days. Even taking it easy I got to the top of dorrigo mountain (my "local" haunt on the weekends) to look down and realise I had already gotten rid of the dreaded "chicken strips" which no matter how hard I felt like I was pushing the IRC's still couldn't get rid of the last 5mm or so. In short if I can get towards another 10,000k's outta these I reckon it'll be money well spent (considering they were about $80 cheaper than Pirelli's), and the confidence these have already inspired in my riding is awesome. Sorry about the rant but I couldn't find anything really on the net about these tyres so I figured I'd be the guinea pig.
