Re: MO

I don't understand how a tire test is that much more costly than a normal bike shoot-out. As a racer, I would like to know what's going on in terms of available brands and compounds, how they compare in grip, warm-up time, performance, and tire life. All you really need is a bunch of rubber, one middle-of-the-road sport bike with decent suspension, and a tire engineer with some measument gadgets. For good measure, you might want to represent twins and fours. Other than that, just spend a day at a track and try a few major brands. There's no need to break lap records here or look for lots of aspects of different motorcycles. All you need is consistantly go around the track with different tires and proper set-up and see how they compare.
