If you check the Ducati.ms archive, there's a pretty good thread about Mark Turbo's experience with them - I haven't tried them yet. To sum up what I recall, they stick about the same as the Pilot Sports, heat up faster, and are projected to last longer - of course, YMMV.oldguy said:How do the Conti's compare to the Michelin Pilot Sports that came on my '05 ST-3?
You're welcome! They never did provide me with a UPS tracking number, but, as I said, they showed up well-boxed in just a couple of days. Guess they're too busy filling orders to mess around with silly ol' email.GordyNM said:Thanks Capn for the tip. I just ordered a set!
I'm sorry, but your experience is contrary to everything else I've heard to date! There has to be something unusual going on with your particular set of tires or setup.j1b3h0 said:I ride mostly the twisty roads of the SF Bay area and somehow managed to wear out my new Conti Road Attack front tire in about 1700 miles. The sides are toast. It could maybe do another 1000mi of freeway though. So far, the back is worn down to about 40% tread remaining (no chicken strips) ST4s. I'm very careful about pressure, 37f/42r and my suspension was set up for me at Aftershocks, in Palo Alto (highly recommended). I ride assertively, but never with abandon, you know 7/10th on some of my favorite roads. Don't believe all the hype about mileage.
Mine have been on for over 5,000 miles and seem to be wearing well. When I first got them, I had to get used to how responsive they are. Since then, I've found nothing but enjoyment in them.couchflyer said:How long have you been riding w/the Conti Road Attacks? I have been looking at these for a replacement since I first heard about them.
