Naturally they won't give you utlimate bite on the street, and in wet cold rain I would not push them like they were a premium sport touring tire but I've never felt the need to drop below the speed limit on them. So are they good enough? I don't know how to answer that as it's hard for me to know what others consider an acceptably fun street pace. For one thing I'm old... what I consider a fun pace could be a snooze fest for others. Maybe @Nowwhat or @EvilSteve can chime in from their viewpoint if they recall the run back thru the paved twisties on the way to Panamint Springs after a day in the dirt. They are about the only folks that has been around when I dialed up the fun meter on the 790 for a bit on pavement. It was the end of the day and they had been kicking my ass dragging me thru hell all day, LOL. It felt good to get my sorry ass back onto smooth pavement!
