I installed these tires on my FZ1 before heading to the Sturgis Rally so that I did not waste the Michelin PR3's on a mostly interstate ride. These held up really well for 5000 to 6000 miles in 10 days. The center did have a flat center on the front and rear after all of the Interstate riding. However, these seem to be a rather soft compound so a couple of day rides around the Northeast on some twisty roads almost have them rounded out again. I should get another 2000 or so miles out of them. Can't beat it for a pair of dual compound tires under $200.

This tire is a awesome. If you don't do any track days, but you ride hard on the streets, this tire will do the job and look good while it's doing.
Excellent traction in wet weather. I live in Florida. So it can be super hot and dry on one side of the highway and storming on the other. This tire did a excellent job on either side. Not to mention that its a sexy looking tire. If you're looking for a "high performance" STREET tire, then this should be on your short list.

This is the first tire to last and perform
The Shinko 016 Verge 2X Rear Tire is the only tire I've bought that can handle my riding style. I bought my 2002 Yamaha Road Star Warrior about 14 months ago. I had been unable to walk for over a year so you can guess that after a miracle surgery and a months of physical therapy the chance to ride again was amazing. I parked the day I bought the warrior and over the next 12 months only drove the car 8 times. The warrior was really the perfect bike for me because of its light weight. But with my very aggressive riding style I soon had a problem. Me + Light weight bike + 1700cc = Zero Life for the rear tire. 60 days after I got the bike the new tire it came with was gone. I kept switching brands without successes, tire number six only lasted 30 days. Then lucky number 7, the Shinko 016 Verge 2X Rear Tire, 200/50-17 75W 87-4099. Finley a tire that can meet me head on. it's been months and the tire shows no sign or ware. the Dual Compound and Design of the 016 Verge 2X means it doesn't go up in smoke when I leave the stop light. Instead, the tire begins to spin then grabs the pavement lifts the front 8 inches for about twenty feet. Add to that its ability to just stick when the Warrior screams through the corners and you've got the perfect tire. My wife is finely off my back. James Wheat
