So I woke up this morning and thought to myself: "You know, what the world needs right now is... another TIRE THREAD!!!!" I've poked and prodded around the internet - read a lot of reviews. Tried to find stuff that was 2014 VFR specific, even 2014 VFR specific. I found some info, but a lot of it is a bit dated. Tires change quickly, so I wanted to do a quick survey. I will confess to still having the OEM tires on my bike. They work. They suck. They are potentially dangerous at this point due to their age (and yes... I was warned here!). They only had 1100 miles on them, but at this point I don't have much , if any, confidence in them. I have always run sport tires. I jumped out of the game 7-8 years ago and up to that point I was putting PIlot Power 2CT's on everything. I ran Powers on my R1 and my last Sprint ST - they didn't last long but I got comfortable with the huge grip. They were usually cheaper than the sport-touring tires of the day, and with the confidence they inspired, I was able to justify it. They are still available at discounted prices - apparently the molds are still good and they sell well... .. but tires have evolved. Can I find a set of good sport-touring tires that offered the same grip (and profile) or the Powers? No sane media outlet is going to do a comparison between and old Pilot Power and a new Pilot Road 5 So I'm considering the usual suspects (PR4/5, Dunlop S-R3/4, Metzler 01's, and the like, but I'll put it to the forum: If I'm willing to sacrifice some wear for some grip, whats a good choice to stay "sticky" on the street this summer ? All opinions are welcome! Thanks!!!
