There is a lot of discussion about tyres on most motorcycle forums. There are so many opinions about which tires are best. Although I have so many years of riding experience, I have never had reason to think that my tyres are good or bad. I understand all the hype regarding, "it's a very small patch of contact" and so on, but I have never experienced an incident when I have thought that I need different tyres. Reading opinions about tyres I see these type of adjectives used, sticky, excellent, confidence inspiring, better, good choice etc. Without some form of measurement these words have no meaning. Could it be some clever marketing phycology is at work? I'm really asking your opinions on behalf of everyday law-abiding riders.
