    Handles great is relative...

    I don't know what this site is anymore, but if that passes for acceptable on a sporty bike, we've lost our standards.

    Don't blame us for goofy claims on tires. Some places require snow tires on cars, but having spent my life in the great white part of the north, bike tires need studs for winter. And when we stud the tires we ride in circles on a frozen lake. You cannot make a tire that is good for Canadian winters and summers, we have 100F degree temperature swing.

    OK, ok, I yield. Putting several thousand miles in Canada before May is probably more than I would dare...

    And performance handling becomes relative.

    It has nothing to do with Canadian winters. That tire you posted a photo of is the K29, and it is specifically intended for sidecar rigs, similar to the Avon Triple Duty and Metzeler K-Block.

    The tire I posted was not intended to be the K66. Nor was it the K29.

    My comments on the scooter tires remain. A quick google search of advrider and K66 yields 90%+ posts regarding this tire in the scooters subforum.

    My opinion on performance tires remains... This is getting retarded. And that's an insult to my retarded friends...

    You guys can keep your performance all season K66 scooter tires, I'll play somewhere else...

    I was referring to this one you posted. That's a K29 sidecar tire.

    We're getting freezing rain right now, it's a perfect time to test and all season tire. We call this season "Oh fuck will this ever end?"

    No it isn't. But that's OK.

    I THINK I found it described as vintage style tires on their website. Can't even imagine riding a motorcycle with a profile like that. Must have been meant for use with sidecar installed???

    I found it. It was one of their car tires... My bad

    A tire is a tire. As long as it fits the rim and load rating, has decent wear and handling, what does it really matter? This is an 18 horsepower motorcycle with a top speed of 82mph (GPS verified) downhill, in a full tuck, on a windless day. There are scooters that make more power and go faster. The tire has a 63P load rating. That's 600 lbs and 93mph. The bike is 283 lbs and I'm 250. That's 266.5 lbs of load on each tire. That's a LOT less than 600 lbs. The bike goes less than 93 mph. Therefore the tire is suitable for my motorcycle.

    FYI, I just talked to John B, the general manager with Heidenau Tires USA, and he said there is no difference between their scooter and motorcycle tires, except for the rim sizes. So long as the load and speed ratings are within spec, the tire is suitable for a motorcycle.
