I use the storms, on my second pair now although my front one did not really need to be changed but i have it as a spare. Great in the wet and dry done over 6000 miles using the motorways, country roads and a trip to Germany on the autobann with no speed limits:deviousstill have lots of life left even with the 1/5th throttle installed. They look cool and i really like them.

Been using the storms since they came out. I like them, they wear well / grip well (but I do ride like a puff on wacky baccy) and they are competitivly priced.

I like them, but they wear to fast. I could not get 2 grand out of them. After that i tryed the azzro. It was good for over 3, but not too stickey...

I got 20k miles per pair out of my last two sets of AV45/46ST's (Azzros I think) and thought the grip was exceptional - scraped hard parts on both sides of the bike (without crashing mind you:laugh). The storms seems a bit softer and stick even better in the wet. I haven't worn a pair out, but think they may wear a touch quicker. Still not bad though as I did about 4-5k miles on a pair, most of that heavily loaded and going fast and they weren't quite half way dead.

I do find that its pretty importaint to keep plenty of air in them. For commuting/touring I ran 40f/42r. For hammering the twisties 34-36.

Hi,

No experience here with the storms, but the Viper Sports on my TLR are great. Nice grip, turn in and good in the rain.
