Awesome Tires!!! Had them mounted and fully scrubbed in within 21 miles!!! Amazing grip and stick, even when newly mounted due to the new dry mold setup these buns use. I'm not a big believer in using all the tire, even on highly spirited rides, but I noticed that my rear has about a thumb nail's width of Chix Strip, and my front tire has about an inch width of Chix Strip!!! This is on my Gen6 VFR800 RC46 that I use for pleasure and commuting. I have over 4k on them now, very, very slight squaring in the center of the rear tire, but they look like they are holding up the same as my previous Pirelli Angel ST tires another awesome tire, got 8200miles out of those. Confidence inspiring, and when they do break loose too much lean on wet pavement, particularly painted lines-user error, lots of feedback and warnings, and very gradual. Ride is not as smooth as with the Angels, but that's not a bad thing at least for me. I'm the "I want to know everything that's going on with the road" type, so I like the fact that I get constant feedback about the road surface. Good bump soak, and they hold tire pressures extremely well went about 2 months without riding during the winter due to ice and snow....maybe .5 to 1lbs of pressure loss. Fast to get to sticky tire temp, and as I ride year round, that's really awesome for winter time riding. Haven't done much wet weather raining yet...but the opportunities I have had have been pretty secure feeling. All in all, this is a great tire coming from the viewpoint of an above-average 'Clydesdale' rider on a heavy bike and when time to spoon on a new set, it'll be this tire. Seriously freaky the scrub in time!!!!

Pros: good grip wet or dry, looks good
Cons: Road Attack 2 has no tread very centre to show wear
Have had Conti Road Attack on my BMW R1200RT previously and put Road Attack 2's on the last time. No complaints on anything, good feel of road, good grip wet or dry. Just replaced the rear with 15,000 KM on it, the front has 10,000.KM on it and still going.Likely should have replace the rear a little sooner but didn't realize how much distance I had on it. The centre stip that gets all the wear started to break down and would have been to cord soon but was still riding fine. Only negative is the Road Attack 2 has no tread across the very centre line like the Road Attack does, so no wear indicator to tell you when that very centre is worn out.I would say I am an average rider for sport touring class.
