I am running Shinkos on both my SF and FJR. They seem to be wearing at least as well as any other tires I've used, and handle as good the others too. At about 60% of the cost of most other tires,...

My '79 Special is the only bike I own that didn't have a windshield. I guess I really am getting old, as I feel the need for a little protection from the elements. In my younger days, I laughed at...
