These were the tires that the PO had on the bike and he swore they were the best. After riding in rain for 8 hours on mountain roads I would have to agree. Good mileage ( I get about 10,000 miles on them but I ride a K75 so its only about 70 HP). Price is great. Traction wet and dry is great.
My buddy rides a V Max and has tried all the latest and greatest tires but he always comes back to these. Last tire he had was a big buck Metzler. When he cracked the throttle is spun and smoked. With the Tourmaster he cracks the throttle and pulls the front wheel. Try them. I doubt you'll be disappointed.
Shinko is best price\performance tour tire for my ZL600!
Just replaced my this same tire after 10 years and 16K miles. Still had legal tread but I dont like riding on tires older than 10 years. Best price for tour tire on my 1997 ZL 600. Amazing grip\handle\wear all weather. And Dennis Kirk has best price and fantastic ship time!
