Continental Conti-Motion Radial Rear Tire
Good Bang for the Buck
This tire has good grip, for a great price.
Tread life is it's weak point however. Don't expect this tire to last more than 4,000-4,500 miles.
If you are looking for an inexpensive tire to get you back on the road, it is a good choice.

Do NOT Buy Conti-Motion
Worst cold tire traction I've ever experienced. If you ride in a colder climate, you may not be able to get enough heat into the tire to make it stick regardless of how long you try to heat it up. Tread life is awful. This is my second Conti-Motion. The first was replaced by the shop at a reduced cost. Both rear tires only lasted about 2500 miles each before steel belts started to come through. I do not burnout, drift or have sloppy downshifts where the back tire gets dragged. Pressure was always kept at 40 lbs and the wheel itself was balanced and true. The tires were on a 2003 Yamaha FZ1. A call to the ONLY manufacturer rep in the US for Continental two wheeled vehicles is in NJ and nowhere near SLC, UT to inspect the tire. Learn from my mistake. You get what you pay for and this was nothing more than a complete waste of money and time. Do not buy Conti-Motion. RUBBISH!!!

Great tire for the price.
This tire came pre-installed on my cbr1000rr from the PO, so I figured I might as well try it out before replacing it. I was surprised to find that the grip on this "budget" tire was impressive, especially when used on a literbike. I only had 2 instances of losing any traction, and both were a result of too much throttle while leaned fully over. Rode once in the rain, and I probably would not recommend these as all-weather tires. I did 2 track days on these, never had any problems. As long as you let these warm up, they will provide plenty of grip. I got exactly 3700 miles out of these before I hit the wear bars (kinda hard to tell, since there's no tread in the middle). Pretty happy considering I ride very agressively and did 2 full days at the track. Proof is in the pictures (taken after 2nd track day).

Seems good, although I haven't had a chance to put them through much testing (stupid bike is broken down again). I got a little excited going through some twisties and should have died lol but didn't. So there's that to speak for the tires haha.

I have a Honda cbr 600 and use it mostly to go ro work and come back, I use the expressway everyday and I feel safe, good grip, not very good for wet roads but overall a good

I run these on a first gen FZ1. I live in the mountains so I have to ride an hour to find a mile of straight level road. These are great for everyday aggressive riding. They are even a little forgiving of low pressure. I get pretty good mileage and the wear bars are easy to read. As long as you ride the conditions you will have to spend a lot more money to get any real improvement for a commuter or touring tire. I am getting more grip and mileage than my last set of metzelers.

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.
