3. Dunlop Q3 tires, $165.95 – $170.95 Front, $204.95 – 290.95 Rear


Now let’s say your dad likes splitting his time between the street and the racetrack. He’ll want rubber that will warm up quickly for his usual weekend rides, while having a solid performer at the track to rip around on. The Dunlop Q3 is that tire. The Q3 incorporates CFT, or Carbon Fiber Technology. Using carbon filaments in the tire’s sidewall, the advantage, Dunlop says, is lighter feeling on turn-in, better stability at full lean, and more composure driving out of a corner. It’s amazing that a tire with such high track performance can perform equally well on the street, but the Q3 benefits from Dunlop’s vast experience in the AMA paddock and it shows. Available in most popular sizes, if dad is looking for new rubber on his sport(y) bike, look no further.

  • Over $100? That’s dreaming.

    heh heh heh. $65k for 1 bike. I could buy 12 bikes with $65k burning a hole in my wallet. Some of them even new!

    I think i’d feel odd riding a bike that costs more than my HOUSE. Much rather have several to play with 🙂

      Oh go ahead and wish for the bike. If you get one you can always sell it, pay off the house and buy a couple of fun bikes to play with.

    Ha ha ha, Harbor Freight!

    For the record, I like some of the items on this list.
    But picking on Harbor Freight is irresistible for a MOron like me.

      Harbor Freight tools are usually built to withstand lying on a flat, stationary surface. Applying any more force than that you are asking for trouble.
