Hey all, Well, I bit the bullet and went with the Shinko's...003 front and 005 rear...... They were fitted to a Suzuki GSX1400 with an above avergae rider who enjoys the twisties. Update FRONTSimply putting it, stick like glue. The road conditions were a combination of dry and wet and very cold. The transition from wet to dry and dry to wet was seamless.... The lean angle did not really vary that much at all. There was minimal movement in the front tyre when pushed. THe ride is reasonable, although I would suggest running 37lbs rather than 38 to 39.... I must say, the front was confidence inspiring, even though I did not push 100% as they were a new brand...... I could not fault them on Sundays brief ride Update REARInteresting tread pattern, very agressive and large pattern which seems to lend itself to a long lasting tyre. The rear does require a little more time to heat up and is certainly more prone to pressure levels. We ran 40lbs to let the tyre settle and promptly decided to goto 38 to 39lbs.... The tyres were quite compliant and tracked reasonably well. There were no significant slides or variations when ridden moderately (this means high entry and corner speed but not agressive exit due to roads being cold and wet). ALTHOUGH, when ridden agressively and on the gas, the rear does slide quite a bit... They are almost like dunlops as they really let go violently.... But, this is 100% due to being cold and over-inflated. Apart from that, happy at the moment. Will keep people posted.
