Wore out the shinko 009 this weekend
« on: July 05, 2011, 02:31:00 pm »
I got back yesterday from my 1200 mile trip to the mountains around BRMC.

I was into the wear bars, got 4,350 out of the rear.  Did a lot better than I thought they would.  I will be going back to the Pirelli Angel again, I got 6k out of that tire.

I only got 2950 out of the 011 Verge Shinko

I'm over 3000 on the Verge and there's plenty of tire left.  But I'm pretty sure I won't get 6k.  I got 8k on the stock tires.  I'm sure you'd ride circles around me.... literally.  LOL

I run the 009 shinkos. Getting 4500 to 5000k on the rear. I tried the 011 Verge only got 1800 out of the rear. Going to stick with 009s.
