I have been running Conti Road Attacks for the last couple of seasons on my 02 Bandit 1200s. I have mixed feelings about the tire. One of my main complaints is the tire profile. I am not sure what the correct description is, but these tires are not rounded but are a bit "pointy". When they are new this leads to super quick turn in for a bigger bike like the bandit. However as they wear it seems to lose much of this super light/quick turn in feel . My second complaint is flat spotting. the pointy part of the rear especially is prone to flat spotting after touring miles. Again this seems to change the profile of the tire a bit. My last complaint is that in cold and wet the tires seem to be a bit slick. I have had more then a few pucker moments with these tires in cool riding weather (Illinois/Wisconsin/Canada) pushing maybe 5 or 6/10th.
The good is that the do stick quite well in dry conditions. I have done a couple of track days and these tires can be pushed. They ball-up and lose a lot of rubber doing it but they will stick
I am putting on PR2's now and will see how they compare. Perhaps I have gotten spoiled and don't know what I have, but I am looking forward to the Michelin's. I will report back.
