Sunny SN 3830! But it looks like it may only be a 10,000 mile tire.

I love the tire I am running now. My Kuhmo wore out in 8000 miles (center and edges, yes I ride hard at times) and my Bridgestone has 8000 on it now and still has 30 % left. It keeps more of the tread on the ground in turns too and has very little input over slow speed off camber bumps and driveways. My gas mileage went up about 4% too due to the low rolling resistance design. It is not a runflat though.

Well, my first was the Pirelli [email protected] I think I'm going to try the Kuhmo when I replace the Pirelli just to compare them.

Well if you have a open mind and don't like to follow the train and don't mind a great Handing tire. The Falken is a awesome handling tire and pretty good wear also.

Had the Kumho and really liked it. Am now on the pirelli and will go back to the Kumho next time. Just don't like it as much. Ride, handling, feel.......kumho next.

If memory serves, the last poll we did showed the Kumho run-flat as the most popular tire overall. The Falken 912 was the most popular non run-flat.

So....choosing a safer run-flat tire for the rear of a motorcycle is being a lemming and a follower. That there's funny, I don't care who you are.:lol:
