    I'm a tightarse :bannanabutt: and ride barrel ass heavy sports tourers, so I always want few miles for my coin. Rosso on front and if I can get them, Continental on rear is longest lasting tyre I ever had.

  9. Great article. It highlights the fact that some riders think that putting high performance sport tyres on their bike is the way to go to achieve great traction. Trouble is, they then ride the bike slowly and the tyre never heats up to operating temp and actually provides less traction than a good sport/touring tyre that is designed to heat up with general road riding speed, cornering etc.
  10. A good read, thanks...(y)
