Continental Conti-Motion Radial Rear Tire
Good summer tire
I use my bike year round and find that these tires are good as long as the temperature is above about 50 they tend to loose grip in cooler temps on a damp road.

Sometimes you get more than you pay for!
I purchased these tires for my BMW R1200RT to try and save a few bucks vs. some other brands. I've been through many sets of Metzlers and Michelins and both are great tire brands. I purchased the front and rear Continetnals for less than the cost of a new rear Michelin. After about 1000 miles, I've been impressed enoughed to recommend them to everyone I know. We will have to wait and see how long they last, but otherwise, they are great.

High quality - low cost.
Great product for the price. I have spent a lot more money for a lot less quality in the past. Great wet traction. Most miles so far have been in rain. (Florida in summer) Well pleased.

Continental Conti-Motion Radial Rear Tire
Good tire for the price. I just got them but so far so good, My brother has a set on his and he put about 6.200 miles on his so far and he likes the Continental Conti-Motion Radial Rear Tire and is going to get them again when needed. His bike is a CBR 600

cheap price = cheap product
While the Continental Conti-Motion tire lasted, the grip was quite good. The tire was just shy of 7000 miles and I had just checked the tread 15 miles before the blow out at 70 MPH. Without a clear wear indication on the rear tire, the Continental Conti-Motion is a dangerous tire to ride on.

I like them!
I was looking to replace the rear tire on my bike because I had a nail in it. Well no company could locate the OEM tire so I was forced to buy a set. I am happy I got these tires now. I have had them on for a few weeks and have put over 300 miles on them. They feel neutral when the cornering and I like that. These tires seem to grip better than the OEM tires too. I haven't been able to get out and really test these tires much. But I have ridden spirited a few times and they gripped just fine.

Great tire for the money
I'm extremely pleased with this tire so far. I gave it an overall rating of four stars (good) because tread life has yet to be determined. I ride a Yamaha FJR, which is a heavy bike, so I'm not expecting miracles from a tire that lacks a dual compound tread. Both wet and dry grip are impressive, and I think anyone would be hard pressed to find a better value in a tire.

Great tires, especially for the price
I've had this set of ContiMotions on my NC700X for 6 months and 6,301 miles. Most of my miles are commuting on highways and freeways, but I ride for fun in the twisties sometimes, too. Consequently, the centers of my rear tires get flattened badly.
These tires replaced the OE Metzeler Roadtec Z8 set. The rear tire of that set was utterly worn out at 14,821 miles, meaning I could see the cord pattern, but there was the very thinnest layer of rubber still covering it. The front had a very odd, scalloped and wavy wear pattern to it, and the set had become quite loud/howly, so I replaced both as a set.
It's always tough comparing brand-new tires to worn out ones, because a lot of the good feel is just due to the fact that you now have new tires again. That said, these ContiMotions were dramatically quieter, smoother, and just 'nicer' tires than the Z8s. They also clung to the road at least as well, and they were more confidence-inspiring when attacking a corner. Slightly 'slower,' perhaps, but more confidence-inspiring. I always felt the Metzies were a little squirrelly leaning into turns swiftly, but the ContiMotions didn't #don't# feel that way at all.
After 6,300 miles, they're still significantly quieter, smoother, more stable, and 'nicer' than the Z8s. The rear is certainly worn flat, but it's not worn out. I'll try to remember to update with a final mileage figure once it is worn out and I change it.
I change my own tires, and for me these have been super tires that I expect to replace with the same ones again, barring some sort of dramatic failure. They get 4 stars rather than 5 on accounta I could 'wish' that the flat center of the rear tire was not quite so pronounced at this mileage. I'm not sure it's any more significant than the Z8s were at this mileage, though.
