Gilvan e Leila says:

The problem with Revzilla is that they are on full on sales spiel 100% of the time. It damages their credibility in my view when reviewing any bike equipment.

FamilyVLOGS says:

Thor Sine says:

Steve Lawrie says:

Yep, how can’t you not like Lemmy? My thoughts on the tyre side is, based on my ride, a K1300S BMW. Pirelli Angels, great road holding and great wear. If you’re doing some serious K’s, I’m an Aussie, for a heavy bike, fantastic. I just did a ride to Tasmania from Brisbane, Queensland and I was running Michelin Pilot 4’s. Total disaster. After riding the east coast of Australia, catching the ferry to Tasmania, to some of the best motorcycle roads in the world, I had to cancel a couple of rides because the tyres were not wearing correctly. Doesn’t matter, I’ll do it again next year. On returning across the Tasman, I put my favorite tire on, Metzeler, Sportec M7’s. You are not going to get the milage of a Pirelli here but the road response is fantastic. Love these tyres.

russell laureto says:

llemmy have the m7rr’s have nicely set up zx9r ride really hard rain or shine absolutely love these tires ,super grip, excellent handling had dunlop sportmax in torrential downpours rear end would wallow and fishtail.Not so with the metzelers they track straight and wont give you any suprises in the turns.You still have to excercise a judicious throttle hand but hey thats riding n the rain.Super confidence inspiring when it rains you dont care.Best wishes brother.

SMDCali says:

Deepak c gupta says:

Jenny Tokumei says:

What would you guys recommend for an old Kawasaki KZ1000 LTD (a bike that I can only best describe as a sport/cruiser hybrid) that’s being used as a daily beater with occasional passengers, and riding in all weather, even torrential rain?

Kalpesh Panchal says:

Jahrern says:

Hey Rev! Recent subscriber and tuned Scooter rider, ya, you read right 😛 70cc baby! xD Anywho, can this knowledge be used for the tinier tires aswell? like what my Peugeot Speedfight 2 uses. 12″ 130/70/12. Im looking for a tire that is gonna last long, and that can handle som rain, and be used in corners. I like to lean as much to the side as possible, but dont really feel all that comfortable with my current tires doing that.

Xian Jun Ng says:

Hi what would you recommend for the street twin. I travel to work daily, sometimes on rainy days, and would also want tires which have great mileage.

Hey guys! Great Video! I’d like to know which tires can be used for the Triumph Street Twin. I’ve done 13000kms and the front seems to be wearing off. I’d like a tire that gives much more kilometres. On the other hand, I have had no issues with the Pirelli Phantoms that come as stock on the street twin.

Q3’s on my Z1000 and love how they handle/wear.

Jeffrey Hinman says:

I have had the M7rr for 2200 miles now and there’s more than half tread left. The grip is superb and I wouldn’t use another tire. By the way, it’s on a 07 gsxr 750. Ive recommended them to all my riding buddies.

Doug McCullough says:

2011 Ducati 1098s Streetfighter – I only run the Dunlop Q3’s on my bike. Great for track day and also everyday riding here in Florida. We get our chances of rain every day in the summer months and these are undoubtedly going to get me home.

Avromi Endfield says:

Hi, I have a Yamaha XJ6. I commute to college daily in central London, but very often take it out for a speedy ride. I live in London (rains a lot ) which tyre would you suggest for commuting, but grips great for when i make it move? Thank you, Av
