Re: MO's tire reviews

So far, MO has fallen right into the hands of Metzeler's, Dunlop's, and Michelin's marketing departments. Giving the general thumbs up to the D207 GP Star, Pilot Sport, and Sportec M-1 is useful, granted. But what your readers (or at least I) really want is some head to head competition. I want some winners and losers, not this "everybody's good" stuff. Maybe reviewing tires isn't as cool as reviewing the newest supersports, but stop promising to do a comparo and actually do it. It might even be a good excuse to get a few different types of bikes on the track together.

Re: Tire wear

Well, is there a good grippy tire that can last more than 15,000km? Tires are very expensive here, they eat your budget if you ride frequently.. And Dunlop D207 weared out in 8,000 km, not to mention that I had no money at a time so I rode another 4,000 on it and it became as flat as a car tire, and as grippy as a piece of glass..

BTW, if a tire has a slightly longer warm-up time, it doesn't matter much.

Ah, and the bike is going to be YZF-R6 or CBR900RR, most probably (money's still on the way - some ******* burned my old lovely GSX-R750, so I'm bikeless for 3 months now, and it still hurts).
