Good tire for the money
I heard that these tires had knife like handling and compared to my old set I have to agree. The bikes is defiantly eager to turn, but it feels a little to willing at times. I haven't had any traction issues so far and I don't expect to, that being said I haven't really ridden in a good downpour yet. I have to imagine the tread life will be good, but I haven't had them long enough to say. This is a good tire, if you compare it to a high end sport touring tire it will probably fall short, but for the money it's hard to beat.

Very good tire affordable price.
I put this tire on my ZG1000 Concours a little less than a year ago. I was truly impressed by how much quieter the Shinko Verge is compared to the Metzler I replaced. The steering instantly seemed more responsive. Most of my riding is commuting but I do get out on the mountain roads on a pretty regular basis. The Shinko tires have given me excellent service. They grip well at speed and I'm very satisfied with their performance in a variety of riding conditions including heavy rain.I have about 8000 miles on these ties and the tread is wearing down but still have a little life left.
For the money I don't believe you can get a better tire.

Best budget Sport Touring out there
I use these tires to commute to school daily. They work great. Ride smoothly, have great grip and the price point is something you can't beat. I'd definitely recommend. Got stuck in heavy downpour and was skeptical but they were great. The deep channels in the tire did their job extracting water and it was great.

On my second set on the ST1100 now, using the raven 009 rear and verge 011 front. They stick great, no wet weather issues, last a long time even on my heavy ST. 8-9K miles on both front and rear. Also used a radial rear on my BMW R1200R with great success. I've run 750K + miles on street bikes in my time and think these tires are just a great value with a lot of technology packed in.

Excellent tire with great grip, wet and dry.
OK, I am very happy with this tire, and just received my rear tire to match. Love everything about it so far. I don't know about the tread life, but if it is satisfactory, I will use these tires in the future. I don't think there is a better tire for the money.
A+++ My bike? A 2002 Buell Lightening.
