    Well, I thought I had some special buttons now, but some people have even specialer buttons.

    re: Honda Super Blackbird tire preference 2016

    Have a question in the sport tech's. Fellow rider had a set in the rain and said they were like riding on sheet ice and it wasn't coming down that hard. Anyone else had this same result? It pushed him down to 10 mph in the turns and the bike felt like it was loose all the time. It's not his riding skill either that caused it. I have seen him chase down a skilled track rider on a cbr1000rr.

    re: Honda Super Blackbird tire preference 2016

    Do Y'all no how many miles one has to put on a single brand tire in all conditions and have an opinion?
    Ha!.... and as the years go buy....... I average 3 to 4 backs per year. Sep I always go back to Avon as its my choice.
    The other brands are over $ $ on what I want to spend. Yep I tried Contie's
    Avon Calling

    It's all about the rider and what he or she feels between there legs while gripping onto the tank navigating there machine.
    Had 4 Avon Extreams and now trying the Storm.
    Front tire Avon Extream 10K
    Rear Avon, and no mater what other brand always 2K.
    Yep STex is a throttle junkie...no cameras in theses parts here were I live
    STex Out.
    Came into this world with nothing and still have it all.

    Sticking with the tried and true Pilot Road 4s. There is a new set of the regulars (mine) and the GTs (hubby's) sitting in my living room right now.

    re: Honda Super Blackbird tire preference 2016

    I think I am going to give the Roadtec 01's a try. No reason other than I use PR4's on the ST and it is a chance to evaluate something else. Not truly apples to apples I know but what the hey. How bad can they be?! All I have to do now is wait until they are off back order up here in the frozen north.

    Sweet with new and updated poll!

    Haven't tried all the tyres in the poll (obviously ), but very satisfied with the PR4's I had mounted last year! Still got som clicks left in them!

    Hey Bees, assuming you're referring to the M7RRs, that's a pretty unexpected experience for that tire. One of the blokes I ride with about a thousand miles a year has had them on his VFR800 for over a year now and he likes them a lot. As it's the UK here , inevitably a few hundred of those miles were in the wet. The old poll says there are a couple of members on them, maybe someone who actually has them will pipe up.

    Curious yes I am wondering if it was a pressure issue. I am a firm believer in running 42 at both ends. I actually suspect low pressure may have been the culprit. Causing the tire to possibly flat foot enough to trap the water under it. That's why I am asking others to find out the results of thier riding with them and the pressure and bike it's on

    re: Honda Super Blackbird tire preference 2016

    Don't see the Bridgestone T30 EVO on the list. Just bought a set and will review later this summer. There's also the T30 and T30 GT for bigger bikes. Wouldn't consider the T16 or 23 anymore because of the 30's. I know I should make my own poll.............................

    re: Honda Super Blackbird tire preference 2016

    I'm running the M7RR tires for the year. After this summer I'll need a replacement set. On the ride with beestoys last fall in the wet and temps just above freezing (I'm pretty sure 38psi front and at that time) the font was slippery and just didn't feel stable cornering. Lost some rear traction also along the way. I'm sure it spooked me for the rest of the ride on that mountain especially when the guy behind me lowsided on a hair pin turn that i even slid a bit.
    Posted some pic of the tire and my pr4 back up tires.
