BTW... this place has the same promotion going on... and they have the REAR tire for about $5 cheaper and they offer FREE shipping ...

FYI.. in the last 6-7 years I have purchased about 95% of my tires through these guys... http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com

Again.. thx for the tip.. Got mine ordered.

$5.00 "handling" fee

But still a better deal overall. I'm putting these on an '04 GT for my upcoming New Orleans to Las Vegas ride. I hope to get a few miles out of them. I need to get 3500 out of the set. I got just under 4,000 out of the RA I put on.

Anyone have any experience with these sneakers or are they brand spankin new?

Thanks,

Gravity

These be new to the market, my brother..and good luck with getting over 3K with them..

while the center tread is a harder compound, the sides are sticky enough for track days which would lead me to assume that they aren't made for any mentionable distance... I could be wrong.. The Pirelli Strada is the one to buy for milage.. or the standard Diablo which is a great tire.

No problem...as fast I go through tires, I'm always looking for a deal.

I'm not tied to any one brand anymore - as long as their round and stick good, I'll try them.

Jerry -

You DIDN'T like the Powers on the KS? Stickiest/best wearing supersport tire I've ever used. I've NEVER heard/read anything other than great reports on the Powers.

What gives?

Mal.. I know others seem to like them and they are decent tires... wear well... feel very neutral... warm up pretty quick...but at the lean angles I ride (remember I live in the mountains).. I'm sliding the front and rear a little more often than I like and it's NOT because I'm ham-fisted on the throttle.... I care absolutely nothing about longevity... Just need more stick.. The new Corsa's should offer more than the Powers... in theory. I think the Pilots would be fine on a lighter bike.. Just my opinion..
