I used to use Conti Road Attacks and loved them. When the Road Attack 2 came out, I tried it. This is my 2nd set of these. They are sticky from the start and warm up quickly. They inspire peg-scraping confidence for sure. I use them on my FZ1. I just bought a 2007 Aprilia Tuono with a nearly worn out (probably stock) Metzler front tire. That old tire slid several times while attempting stoppies. I immediately changed it to the Road Attack 2 and now it grips like I new it would. Of course, mileage will vary based upon how aggressively you ride. I ride pretty hard (wheelies, and peg scraping corners (no burnouts except for minor tire spin while doing wheelies). I usually get close to 4000 miles on a tire. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
