All right hey guys it’s Hugo in a while I’ve been busy anyway I just picked these up I got these new tires here they are Bridgestone’s battle axe Hypersport s the 20s and I’m about to go I’m pulling the wheels off to go have them swapped out so these are these don’t come in stock sizes for the rear they do come in stock sizes for the front so I have a 110-70 for the front and 150-60 for the rear this is the second set of tires that I’m putting on the bike these that I have on here now are not the stock tires.
What is Continental Conti Motion Tire?
These are Continentals Conti Motions they’re a sport touring tire a harder compound which I needed because I was driving I was putting a lot of miles on the bike and I I couldn’t afford to have something that was going to wear out and you know 7,000 miles so and these have gone a long time actually and probably could go a little bit longer anyway yeah so I needed something that was going to go the long distance you know and these have gone I think these have gone 15,000 miles and I don’t know how well you can see the wear on here but I mean they’ve got a little bit of a flat spot down the middle and a little bit of we sort of started copying a little bit here on on the edges I don’t know if it’s visible at all but I mean on the edges here there’s still some tread depth.
Here’s the wear bar right here and it’s not quite to the wear bar that’s in the rear front the front work on a phony the front wore much more on the left side here and it in some places is just about wow just about down to the where bar salmon’s the rear I probably ran them a little bit lower than the recommended pressures so they might have worn a little faster these didn’t come in stock sizes for either the front or the rear so this is a 150 on the rear 120 on the front so we’ll see what the difference is going back but anyway yet so I was just going to talk a little bit about the Continentals why get them taken off here baby if I can get the camera to stay there and then once I get these swapped out I’ll do a little review of the hyper sports which are going to be a softer compound hopefully stickier now they don’t have to drive so far it won’t matter if they wear a little faster but yeah so I don’t know I think these are really good.
What is the difference between Continental Conti Motion and other tires?
I couldn’t tell really much of a difference from the from stock tires I didn’t think they were I didn’t think they necessarily felt a lot more grippy but a certain world they certainly weren’t worse and their radials so they felt they felt a lot more comfortable to ride, especially on the freeway with the cracks and bumps and things that are in the Roda they just so a so-called radials so call that have a lot better than the stock tire did but I mean I did take them to the I had them in the twisties also and they did fine there I mean I’m not the greatest I’ll push it that hard but they are a true sport tire and they still did well enough for me let’s say in that respect anyway yeah I would definitely recommend these if you need something that’s going to go long-distance like I said they went 15,000 miles from me mostly freeway.
Would you recommend these tires?
I did take him to the twisties a few times yeah they’ve lasted really well they’re good and good in the rain a few times I had to do that and they’re not too expensive like just over $200 to have this ship so yeah. I definitely would recommend these Continentals I will do a review of the bridge stones once I get them on there and get them scrubbed and I want to do the review until they’ve had a few miles put on them and are all ready to go so yeah that’ll be coming up and I also just found out that there’s going to be a KTM demo event later this month so I’m definitely going to try to get to that maybe right it’s Super Duke so that’ll be coming up as well hopefully but anyway so I got it to let me I got to get this finished so I can drop them off over there and have to have them swapped out but that’s all, for now, see you guys next time. Wow, traffic here is bad now that schools are back thank God for a lane splitting you.
