Default Motorcycle Tire Reviews - please help

I am kind of a research freak, and about a month ago I started to gather up motorcycle tire reviews. I was hoping some of you would be willing to provide your reviews of motorcycle tires you have used.

If you are willing, please click the link to provide your motorcycle tire reviews. I also have a first shot at some results based on reviews I have received so far. These are listed here Best Motorcycle Tire Miles and Rating.

Appreciate any reviews you are willing to provide, and I hope you find the information helpful.

You aren't really a research freak. You just started a site you hope will make you some money some day, and you want everyone else to fill it up with free data that you can sell. Since you have no real quality control on the info, I wouldn't trust your site it as far as I could throw it.

Looks like someone's been to Klazy Ken's seminar.

Dammit, Ken, have you set up automated responses?

Default The Best Dang Tires In The Whole Dang Universe!

..are 30 year old Japanese Dunlop Trials Tires. With age they seem to petrify and stop wearing, like cement was mixed into the rubber compound, or kevlar.

I have a very limited supply of 3.25 x 19 & 4.00 x 18's of these fine skins that I can let go at a very low price, or trade for a set of knobbies for my wheelchair.

Oh, and the Go-Devil project is moving along slowly. Just need a rear rim to complete the package.

Just make sure you don't go around any turns.

You want the hardest rubber compound available, that way they don't wear out. Cheng Shins work really well and they're cheap too, try to find the Trials Universal tread, they work great on and off road.....

Yeah, but when your tires are as hard as a No. 2 pencil, it's really easy to 'leave big darkies' on the corners, as the 'Motojournalists' like to say.
