good quality, great price
Haven't gotten too many miles (only about 3000 on it yet, but has good feel, and i can't find anything negative to say about it. I will deffinitely buy this tire again.

good dry grip, normal tread life
I put this tire on my 1989 CBR 600,
it was a budget buy as my last tire went flat do to a nail.
grip was fine, didn't do much wet weather riding on it.
mostly just straight line riding on the freeway doing 75mph.
It lasted about 6k miles. then it was pretty much bald, not down to the wire, but zero tread depth.
I didn't attempt to get my knee down at all, did drive a little aggressive around some back roads. never lacked grip.
for the price, it was great.
I believe a more expensive tire would grip better knee dragers or be harder and last longer.
either way, I was happy with it.

Excellent choice of tire
This is my third Shinko rear tire on my Moto Guzzi. I thought at first I'd buy them cause they are inexpensive. But, after riding with them for a while I can say that they are better than the Bridgestone BT-45's and almost as good as the Pirelli Sport Demons for dry handling. Why this tire instead of the Sport Demon? Cost and it lasts longer. I only got 6k miles on the Pirelli and I get 8-9k miles out of the Shinko.
I have to admit to not riding in the rain much, but, the few times I have the Shinko has done well. The reason I marked it as average in the wet is just lack of experience with them in the rain.
I am not a hard rider, but, the Shinko grips well enough to leave no 'chicken strip'. Worn all the way to the edges.
It is the BEST value for the money out there.

good tire, great price
Had the tire mounted on my 76 goldwing locally, no issues quick and easy. Tire looks appropriate for the bike seema to be of good quality but I can't attest to durability/wear as I havent had as much time to ride as I would like. I also really cant say much about grip as an old wing like mine isn't really made for handling...overall I'm very happy with the tire and would definitely recommend.

Great tire for fantastic price
Decided to give this a try after reading great reviews online and on the forums when I discovered the Metzeler for my K-bike was discontinued. Only a couple hundred miles in but the rear end seems planted and secure in cornering. Have not ridden in and wet or damp conditions.

Handles pretty good in the rain
I just got home after a 30 mile ride in the rain. This rear tire handled real well on wet pavement. Didn't lose traction at all, I like it. 3/31/14.
