Since I plan to do more distance riding to other twisties this year, I was thinking about Storms for the K bike. I have used them on my brand X twistie bikes with great results. Best cornering S/T tire I've ever ridden. As advertised I think the Avon Storms contact patch does remain large when leaned over all the way. I have yet to slide one and they turn in reasonably quick.
So, does anyone else have them on a K1200R or S? If so, whaddya think??
They've been excellent on the GT even making a terrific track day tire. I currently have over 9k miles and they look good for another 3 - 5k.
Great cornering, excellent stability and wet weather traction. I paid $300 F & R, installed and balanced last season. I'll be going there again this year.
