Re: RE: Re: Something more sticky than Metzler M7RR

I realize most of you don't ride mountain curves every time you jump on your bike so you may get a laugh out of this--I run Supercorsa's at 30 front and 28 rear cold on the street. Yes, the rear edges wear fast (1,700 to 2,000 miles) but... they stick like a cat-on-a-carpet on dry curves. They are ...

Re: RE: Re: RE: Re: Something more sticky than Metzler M7RR

The rear inflated to the same as the front, will not provide the same contact patch, because it will not be able to compress/distort to create a better contact patch leaving the corner, causing spin, or the traction control intervention if it's active.

[quote="dukebadboy"] Thank you! That's very useful. Let me repeat the tests with Metzler. No problem, glad you think so, but don't bother until you get a good tire gauge, you said yours sucks, so get a good one, or you will be wasting time. A good tire gauge is usually not cheap. ...

Alps 2017

One of my recent trips to the Alps. Mainly covering Dolomites / Lake Como / Bormio areas. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/mecd1dygj1fmqbw/DSC00494.jpg?dl=1 Most of my trips start in Bellagio. It's a nice place to have a morning cappuccino at. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/tg5iufyfb4itxwh/I...

Once you have this, ALWAYS handle it as though it were an uncooked egg, less you stand an excellent chance of throwing the calibration off, when dropping/...

Interesting!

I used to have this on S1000RR, but back then I didnt really ride aggressive enough to understand how they like.

Have you compared them to Diablo Rosso III ?
