I rode Shinko Advance 005 before and honestly thought it was a good tire. After switching to Q3 I realized how tire should feel like. Shinko didn't slide or anything but I didn't have the confidence to push it harder in the corners. On Q3 I see why. Q3 feels like you ride on rails in corners. Awesome confidence building tire. Highly recommended for people that try to push their bike harder as well as new riders for their ultimate grip.
Excellent tire. I got 12000 miles out of the first one. I had to change it because of a bubble in the rear tire. The traction is great in dry and wet climate. this is a great handling tire. I would recommend this tire to all in need of a great tire.
I've ran these for years. '73 Triumph Tiger 750. To me traction is quite good. Wet traction very good. Seem to be pretty round & balance up well. Use white dot to valve stem, not yellow dot. Since bike came with them new, it looks right. New k70s wear a bit faster than the originals. I get about 8-9k miles until bald in center. My bike is stock & a "rider". I cover about 3k miles per year.
My R1200RT now has almost 102,000 miles on it. I have tried just about all of the brands of tires on it. I just ordered my 3rd set of Roadsmart II's. I get about 1/3 more milage with them than other brands, while not sacrificing handeling or traction (wet or dry).
