Love your new tires! You may be a Dirtbike vs. Streetbike rider.
I've been riding The Dragon on sport bikes with the best sticky street sport tires available and been dusted by guys on dirty, ratty dual sport bikes (like a KLR650) with worn out flat in the middle knobbies. And to be perfectly honest, I aint slow on that road.The M+S stands for mud and snow. I once road with a guy that road a custom built Triumph with semi knobbies, thought I would dust him but we were pretty even a lot of the ride.
In my youth I rode Observed Trials and I'm proud that I was pretty good at it however..... even though I had really good bikes/tires/equipment I've been dusted by guys on old ratty clapped out bikes that looked like they were on the edge of falling apart. That's when I learned it isn't what folks ride but how skilled the folks who ride are.I've been riding The Dragon on sport bikes with the best sticky street sport tires available and been dusted by guys on dirty, ratty dual sport bikes (like a KLR650) with worn out flat in the middle knobbies.

Finally got to watch this! Fun stuffLove your new tires! You may be a Dirtbike vs. Streetbike rider.
I have them tires at 110 almost every day. They work great at high speeds.these kind of tires might help my situation, when I get my bike I have to go through dirt and rocks because of the RV park I live in. but once out of the park it's all pavement with normal riding, i'd like to be able to ride on the freeway at normal speeds ( 70-90 mph ).
bookmarking these thank you, might just swap out the tires when I get my Ninja 400, right from the get go.
LOL! I feel your pain.Also. When I stop today to have that guy flipped the tire on the wheel he asked me .....AGAIN..... what side of the bike the rotor is on.!!!!
he relates the rotation of the tire to the side of the wheel the rotor is on even though the rotor is off of the wheel when he mounts the tire.
I again explained to the dude look at the rotation of the tire that’s on there before you take it off is it clockwise or counterclockwise that’s all the information you need. Stop over complicating it man
I swear, that reminds me of the good old days when I would go to my favorite clover leaf and spend hours playing on it. That may be why I still suck at right hand turns.I have them tires at 110 almost every day. They work great at high speeds.
I also have this turn i WAS able to take at 80mph confidently with the stock tires and my new number is a casual 90mph. Pretty sure if I pushed it I can hit close to high 90’s or 100. But i wont. I know a guy that races and did it on a 250 cafe racer at 113mph..... Its a “40mph yellow sign turn”.
the very top long left turn ⬇🤫🤫 its a local favorite

i can do nice big “back in” with these tires too. They are very predictable for me. Ill save the rest for a review
i would Still ask the guys around here based on your situation what tires would be best. I’m no expert.
