Oh heck Dave, and I'm going to hear about the fact that I still like Shinko tires.
 Shinko=Yokohama which is THE racing tire of choice in Japan.
Um, yes the same place our bike were built, little island east of China?
The Strada look great but, It's hard to trust an Italian after Danny Green.

The Shinko 005 on Rockelle still has plenty of tread left on her,.  [pics later]
and way stickier than any battle-axe. So $135 for for the Stradas or
$85 for the korean made jap tires. Both are race and street proven.

Why Shinko gets the bad rap over here beats the daylights out of me.

I did find out 180 battle-axe was the OEM tire, why Avon want to sell 170s
I'll never know.

that rear tire from you and put another 3000 miles on it... =-O
