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.

Awesome tire.Took my 01 GSXR750 to a track school at jennings GP,my new dunlop 207's were sliding on the 3rd 20 minute session.I went back on the sportecs and have no complaints.I won an amatuer race there, my first race ever and was the only bike on street tires.Before the race everyone was telling me not to race on those tires.Afterwards they were saying "I guess I can go faster since I have slicks." No better tire for the money!
