After less than 2,000 miles, with lots of tread left I replaced my front Conti road attack with a Pilot Power. I have to think there was something wrong with the Conti. I had no problems in left hand turns but in right the front slid, the bike never felt planted, and in high speed sweepers I was getting a shimmy. Also the right side of the tire wore almost flat. If you run your hand over the tire the left side in smooth were as the right is rough as if it was dragging. In 72,500 miles I've never had this happen. Today with the Pilot Power up front the thing was back to it's old self, rock solid powering out of 90mph sweepers, and no front tire sliding. The powers also turn in faster and easier. For me for now it will be a PP up front with an Avon in the rear.
