    for some reason i only got about 2500 miles out of a 170/60 rear. i think i had an alignment issue. my current 160/60 is doing better, over 4K and still going.

        I have a buddy that has them on his R6 and has about 3500miles on them seems to like them but for the price I'd at least go with the Road Attacks since they're not a lot more.

              I got about 1K on my set. Still look new! Rear ones got a plug and i put about 250mi on it since the plug so.. And NO, Im not driving crazy. Just didnt want to or could afford to buy a 4th tire in a year due to either glass or nails..

                    I have 2.5k and they still look new. just dont get to agressive with them in the corners with out letting them warm up. the rear will slide out alittle, but all in all great for super slab running.

                      Thanks for the response.. I am a very timid rider andI don't get into the bike at all.. So taking corners too fast I don't think will be a problem. I just like to cruize around, Staying at the speed limit 98% of the time..

                        Just put the Conti Motions on this morning. Playing around a little and like them so far. Of course that could be due to the fact that my last tires were at the point of sucking.

                          Just got my set on... I went with a 160 Rear. I put 140 miles on them and like them so far.. The only set I had before were the Mich stock tires.. And they sucked. So 200 For 2 tires mounted and balanced... Really like them so far

                              Love the motions

                              for the price you cant go wrong. we ran #118 in Muskoka frrom Baysville to Cooper falls to #11 in 20 minutes give or take.
                              thats friggin cooking it. the other bike with me was a VFR1200 running pilot pures and we were ripping it up hard pushing it to the limits.
                              The motion on the rear (160 60 17) performed flawless. 1/4 chicken strips show its perfect at any angle even.
                              Compared to the road attack I had on there there is very little difference at all. both perform about the same. The only difference I notice is the rear might slide a lil easier under hard breaking. The road attack gave my bike a lot more noticable wheel chatter under hard braking. the Motion does not feel like its slipping but does not chatter the rear as much.
                              I give it a 9 out of 10
                              For the cost you cant beat them.
                              One of my customers runs them on his zx14 and swears by them. not the best mielage but at 1/2 the price of a tire that gets 2K more its well worth it.
