I only have about 500 miles on the front. The tire grips good on first ride. Seems to warm up evenly and it grips very good on dry pavement. I got caught in a pretty heavy rain storm and I felt confident riding in the rain. The tread has excellent water dispersion grooves. I had a Shinko 011 on the front and it only lasted one riding season and it developed a bulge about the size of a tennis ball, hopefully this tire is a better quality... time will tell but so far I'm happy.

So far it's been a good quality tire. Was excited by the way it looked when it was put on. Its been about a month so don't know how long the tread will last, I'm currently a daily rider and it's going steadily but not slow. But like I said I'm a daily rider so it's quicker for me. Especially riding a supersport.

Decided to give Shinko a try. Honda VTX1300T. Tire was out of round and would not balance without lots of weight added (still not exact). Already spent the money so decided to do the best I could. Daily commute to work is 80 miles round trip. Very wobbly above 65mph and outright dangerous above 75. Wouldn't even think of cornering above 60. Tread life is decent. Have 13,620 miles on front and the cupping is now at the point it requires changing tires. No more Shinko for me.

Nice tire. The rear it was replacing was worn in the middle so this one added alot of traction. Used Shinko on my last cruiser and the tread seemed to last well.

Within moments of riding with these tires installed front and rear I knew I made a huge mistake buying them. Worn out Michelins were way better! The Verges aged my Bandit instantly. 4K miles not smiles later I will pay for the Michelins next. I don't recommend the verge!!

After hard use such as backing into corners and overall extreme braking and lean angles, this tire performs as a good tire should. Compared to more expensive tires which I go through as fast as I do, I can tell you this. They stick better than the others, they slide with predictability, and are so confidence inspiring, I run lean angles in the rain that would otherwise cause me not to even attempt on the "other" tires. 5 star rating is an understatement, If anyone complains about tire life, then buy a hard compound tire and limit your riding to mild. and be Bored....But how do you ride a fast sportbike mildly? That's the hard part! Trust your tires feedback and you will know what it is going to do for you before your in trouble. And save money too!
