    Conti RoadAttack

    I just got my new RoadAttacks this afternoon. I put about 55 miles on them riding home to give them a little break in. First impressions are that they definitely turn in faster than the Bridgestones. They also seem to have a bit less rolling resistance even though the pressures are slightly lower. I'm really happy at the moment, but will add more info as I use them a bit more.

    I'll post pics later tonight.

    Oh, I got 90 degree valves as well since I got tired of fighting with trying to check the pressures and put air in.

    I'm off bikes for the moment because I used to have a Black 2007 FZ6 Fazer S2 with Scorpion cans, Puig screen, bd43's dual headlight mod, and frame sliders. Then I had a K7 Suzuki GSX-R 1000 with Arrow cans, Pazzo levers, Suzuki double bubble screen, R&G crash bungs, R&G rear cotton reels, etc... but some b*stard stole it too!

    Nice one mate,

    I like the idea of 90 degree valves.

    Here's a closeup of the tread.



    And the 90-degree valve.



    I've got one more but I have to fix the plate before I can post it.

    You most certainly wont be let down with these tyres...i've had them for some miles now and not once have I felt uneasy with them...even on gravel!!!

    Re: Conti RoadAttack

    Em...its quite possible that i've now gotten about 6,000 km out of my tyre now...and there should be some distance left in them. I do see them starting to square up but until it becomes an issue i'll keep riding with them on.

    They're certainly softer then stock but they really are not that bad...and at the price they go for...its not something to worry about!

    The couriers in London seem to use them a lot so they must last.
