Final Full Bore tires update
Written by h2opolonut on 3/11/2012 at 05:55 pm

Well, 200 miles into it I am very very happy. Happy with the ride (smoother),
handling (absolutely dont even notice the grooves or seams on the highway),
braking, handling...everything. I just got done riding on a moderately twisty
road and I do notice a bit of difference....not bad, just different.

I think I agree...i wont be unhappy with the choice, especially since 90%+ of my
riding is commuter/highway riding.

that cost considerably more. That works out to 1.4 cents per mile if that
matters.

Paid $102 for the tire, and $20 for mounting and balancing. So far I am very
happy that I made the change. I will see how it does on some twisties this
weekend.

For anyone interested, I have completed my "unofficial test" of a Full Bore brand rear tire. Overall, I am moderately impressed, but I doubt that I will go back to that brand. The tire cost $112 out the door, mounted and balance

    I was getting 15,000 on the dunlops front and rear. The rear Metzlers, more like 10,000. That was on my 1989 PC800. Will be interesting to see if that continues on my new to me 1990. --- In
