    Excellent tire - Rob   NM Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent value, great reviews, nice and sticky around corners
    Cons: None so far

    Based on customer reviews I decided to try the Shinko brand for my BMW 1100RT. Had the tire installed for a week now and I'm really pleased with the quality. The tire is nice and sticky around turns and really feels confident. The center line on this tire has substantial material so I'm anticipating wear should be excellent, especially since I'm on a touring bike with mostly straight line riding. Time will tell.

    Raven 009 - PRTX   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: great wet and dry grip, long lasting.Awesome price.
    Cons: None

    This is the second 009 I have put on the front of my 900 Trophy.I'm sold on this tire it gives me over 10 thousand miles commuter and weekend riding.Great wet grip,I have been in some heavy downpours, and never once lost traction. IMHO for the money. You can't go wrong with this tire brand.

    great tire - jimhas   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: keeps me on the road daily snow rain 365 a year
    Cons: [None]

    For the price handles better than some 250 tires I raced on

    Shinko 009 - Dusty   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Consistent and forgiving handling. Good wear.
    Cons: None.

    The Shinko 009 is more geared to the sport touring crowd than the hyper-sport rider. Due to their profile initial turn in is slower but they neither fall into a turn or try to stand back up like some pure sport tires. Keeping that in mind, these tires are very good. Their grip is the same wet or dry. If you have to change your line mid- corner or get on the binders due to misjudgment not an issue. I've used these tires on three different motorcycles, the current one being the rather heavy FJR 1300 and still get a solid 7000 miles out of a rear and generally the front will survive two rears.Most people overlook these tire because of their price or name and that's a shame.

    I ride a BlackBird "97" and I have no problem with these tires I don't ride too crazy but I would buy another pair no problem!

    Surprised - 2000 ZX12R   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Handles great at moderate speeds
    Cons: Handles not so great at high speeds

    My kid slapped a set of these Ravens on his ZX14R so seeing the price he paid for them I did the same. Break in was quick with no issues at all. These tires handle great at normal to moderate speeds but at high speed the front tire wobbles. My kid said that his did the same thing but he said went away after few hundred miles of riding. Unfortunately I didn't get enough saddle time to find that out before old man winter came knocking at the door. I noticed that a R6 pilot was complaining about the handling of these tires. I think his problem was that his bike's to light. These are sport touring tires that are made for heavier bikes or loaded down one's. This company makes the right tires for his bike at nearly the same price. If he's worried about mileage buy 2 sets when they're on sale or buy a bigger bike I like these tires & they do what they were meant for. Just one of them isn't stupid fast. lol If you're looking for a great tire that's reliable from 0 to 140mph these will fit your bill nicely. These Ravens are the best every day street tire I've had on this bike. They out handled the Dunlop 207's that it came with. The rear tire of the D-207's felt greasy & they wore out very quickly. I think that the next set of tires I get will be a set of Verge's by Shinko. They seem to be more sport then touring oriented & the price is right to. Looks to me that the longer this company produces good inexpensive motorcycle tires the sooner the high bucked & hyped name of the major motorcycle tire manufacturers will either drop their prices or find a different sport to take full advantage of. lol It's a shame that you can put a full set of tires on a car for nearly the same price as buying 2 tires on a bike from one of the name brand manufacturers which usually doesn't include installation & balancing. I'd recommend these tires depending on what bike they were going on.

    I have them on a BMW R1150RS and they have performed great. Rode lots of twisties down in TN / NC area and then a four hour ride in pouring rain. The tires worked flawlessly. No complaints so far. Have 3000 miles on them and I'm hoping to get my normal 6-8K.

    Not a very good tire. Bad response in steering and doesnt take corners well.
