Conti Road Attack

Continental Road Attack

The Continental Road Attack aims to give you the performance level of a sport tyre coupled with the mileage you get from a touring tyre – a good option if you are an all year round biker as this tyre will cope with all weathers and track conditions. The Road Attack was chosen as the recommended tyre to be used with BMW motorbikes and is reasonably priced. The tyre offers fantastic grip and stability in all conditions, and can stand to be ridden fairly aggressively if that is your riding style. We found that these Conti’s keep the rider aware of any unusual road surfaces to help you read the road better, which is something you will either love or hate about these tyres if you purchase them.

Response was excellent with the international riders including Gary McCoy managing to lap on average, a second faster than the previous years control tyre, the BT014............

Colin,

The Metzeler Sportec M1 I ran (not sure if they're the same these days) I got 2850km on it.


Metzeler MEZ3 2687km


I ran a set of Pirelli Diablo Corsa's they wore well, I took them off prematurely for a track day and ran with Super Corsa's I couldn't fault them, but I'd have to search to find out how many km I did on them. You could try them and see how you go. (How many kays of the SC now? they were fitted at 26266)

Didn't take a pic when I pulled the Diablo Corsa's off.

The last ride i did was just short of 500 KLM's and by the time i got back ( nearly didn't) they looked like this....:coocoo



Now i know you guys are gunna bash me on this but they actually wernt that bad before i left and didnt think we were going to be out as long for the day either.
Anyway there ****ed now so new hoops it is.

I gotta deal on Diablo's $500 fitted, i just got told the TL will eat the Pilots for breakfast, hence why im asking others opion's:O

Michelin Pilot Power here
just put a new set on
Same here, put a new set on this past spring and I love them. I think they are a perfect street tire, get up to temp quickly, good and sticky, and wear very well. I had Metz and the ride of the Powers are 100% better.

I've been running pilot powers for the track and I love them.

I would like to know who told you to stay away from the PP's and why.

2000 miles so far, all street use, just winding mountain roads and still look fairly new. The back tire is showing more wear than the front, I guess from the hard shifts on occasion.

I have ran every tire in the book on the streets and the most impressive so far are the Sportec M3's. I just got them on, so I can't say anything about tread wear but so far so good.

Excellent mileage, subject to how and where you ride, but the best wearing tire for the bikes I have put them on. I work at a dealer and see and talk to a lot of users. Michelins are what I stock cause they work the best. No one I know has been disapointed .............

I've been super happy with my Avon AV45/56 tires. Got 20k miles out of the last set before seeing wear indicators (note I'm light, commute a lot and ride year round in an area that's quite cool half the year). Have ~4k on the current set and have used about 1-1.5mm of tread. They stick amazingly well and are better in the cold than anything I've tried thus far. I haven't tried the road attacks yet, but I'd guess they are similar:)

Ive had too different tyre suppliers say the TL torque doesn't take to kindly to them and that they wouldn't last as long as a Corsa or Metzy?
One of them even sells them but HMmmmmmmm:dowhat
I'm askin you guys that are runnin them...
