I'm having a tough time deciding on which tire to go with. I have ridden close to 10k on two sets of conti motions. Have any of you ridden both? How do they compare?

I've not ridden the PR2s, but they'll be my next set. The ContiMotions don't last long enough.

How many miles do you do in a season? That's what I'd look at. If you get 2 seasons from a set of Contis, then do that. No sense buying a long-life tire if you're going to take 3+seasons to wear through it. Dry-rot is not desirable.

I put 8500 miles on the first set of conti's. I average 5-10k a season.

In that case, I'd buy the Michelins. You'll burn through 'em in a season point five. Especially with that new race bike of yours.

PR2s are the best STREET tires I have used to date.

Never ridden on Contimotions, but I did go through 2 or 3 sets of Conti Road Attacks which I liked a lot. The grip was about the same between the PR2 and CRA, maybe a slight edge to the PR2. PR2 lasted longer due to the dual compound.

haha! I dont know about race bike. I'm not much of a pilot, but thats kind of what im leaning towards also, just the 100$ less conti's are pretty tempting.

Yeah.. you really can't make a bad choice, either way. I just know the torque from the MTS eats those Contis in a hurry.

Im contemplating this same thing. The Price of the Conti Motions is hard to beat and even if I get a third less miles it still the same price per mile. give or take. Ive always run Pilot powers and 2cts though and they are both a great tire.

I've run the road2's on two different bikes now and love them. No experiance with the conti's, sorry can't help with that. I road my first track day on the pr2's and had no problems. Seams I keep changing them out early as it seems I plan long trips close to the end of tire life. I am still getting 6-7 thousand from the rear. Somebody with better self control on the throttle should see a fair bit more.

I have Conti Motions on the S3 now, they will probably be switched to the PR2's or 3's when they go away.

I like the Conti Motions, but the PR2's seem to be a better all around tire to me...

im extremely happy with the longevity I got out of my previous conti's, but if i could get maybe two seasons out a set of pr2's I would def pay the price.

Either tire would have probably worked well for you, I think you made the right choice with the PR2's though.

Soulfoam : (May 04 2015 - 05:09 PM) So I got my first bike and I already dumped it (not to hard, only going about 10, broke the turn signal bracket (the turn signal its self is perfectly fine) and cracked the wind shield a bit), I already ordered a new bracket and the windshield I super glued and it seems to be fine.
Soulfoam : (May 04 2015 - 05:11 PM) But now, I dont know if this was happening before I mini dumped it, when I put the bike in neutral, the front tire doesnt lock up, but if its not straight, the brakes seem to be catching it.
Soulfoam : (May 04 2015 - 05:12 PM) So if Im turning the bike hard right or hard left and try moving forward or backward in neutral, it moves but has a lot of resistance from the front tire, could this be something huge or? I rode it around a bit today and the tire didnt seem to be grabbing when I was in gear, although I didnt make any hard turns with the handlebars so it might do it when I'm in gear, but I dont think it does.
