wow, Shinko Drag Radials on the street...i guess tires comes down to how hard i ride my 12r and i only ride the bike hard...in a straight line for now and i am not going to be riding like I am on a ZX10R. Its so hard to find a tire based on my relatively easy riding style that still is a quality tire that i wont be worried about coming apart or having inferior quality saving $50. I have A Metzeler M5 up front which i am keeping but its a 5 year old tire already. I have no idea what to run in the rear that will compliment the front tire OR is my front tire at 5 years old causing handling issues if it hasnt yet? i was looking at the Battlax Bridgestones S20 for the back which is the older version of the S21. i got about $150-$160 US dollars to spend on a rear tire

I sense the sarcasm..I know I know. I've made up my mind on a full set of Bridgestone Battlax s20 hypersports or the newer s21s. No slip on lol. Power is nothing without....control of common sense
