So my road attacks needed to be replaced and the only tire my dealer had in stock were the Tourances. I asked what he thought of them and he responded "people like em." I was impatient and had a service appointment already so I said go ahead. I ride a lot of fast twisties in the Nor Cal foothills and have been a fan of the Anakees, and Road Attacks granted they do burn up pretty quick (6-7K miles) with my weight and riding, 230lbs on a 1200GSA. I have never felt uncomfortable on my motorcycle with dry pavement until I put these Tourances on. At first I thought perhaps it was just some additional feedback that I wasn't used to, but this weekend I had a couple of direct experiences that make me just not trust them. I was riding a very familiar road yesterday, it was around 85F and I headed into a familiar turn, it does have some tar snakes but I have honestly never had an issue with those on any other tire even on much warmer days. I went into the turn and leaned it over and the front end slid like I have never experience. It felt like I had run into an pile of oiled gravel. Additionally, I had a couple of quick downhill downshifts that slid the rear tire enough to bring the back end out. NOT COOL! Beyond that, the front end just feel really vague in turns and it seems like it steps off when leaning over. The only validating aspect of the tire I can see is that it seems to be quiet on slab and likely has much higher mileage capabilities. Is this just the tradeoff for longer mileage tires? Am I just pushing this tire too much for the type of riding I like to do and my setup weight? I have played up and down with tire pressures and bringing the pressure down actually seemed to create more freakishness up front, I don't want to ride beyond 38F / 42F. I hate to throw away tires with 1500 miles on them, but I am shaken after all the traction issues. Anyone else experience this on these tires?
