Typically brilliant, informative, interesting, colorful and humorous presentation by the folks at Fortnine.
Undoubtedly. He has covered modern examples (advantages and disadvantages) of shape, compound, and economy.I've found his videos to be incredibly informative. He's a very bright young man and I'm guessing these tires were highlighted for no reason other than their technical abilities.
Maybe you don't act like a fool on a bike (most of the time) because your tire choice is limiting your confidence and your bike's performance. I walk very cautiously on ice, for example.Makes one wonder why a car tire on the rear does not make the bike crash or how a Shinko R-009 corners since the rear tire has more almost flat surface than round surface unless it is because riders like me do not act like a fool on a bike - most of the time.
Ride your own ride. Sounds like you and I will save money by NOT buying track tires for the FJR.I usually did not ride like a fool in the younger years because I had a family to support and had to be at work Monday morning. I did not need bragging rights like some I rode with that did a crash and burn. Now I am old and if I have to kneel down to work on something in the garage it takes a couple minutes to try to get back up. My foolishness was 1/4 mile and not corners. I knew my limitations and was not worth a hospital stay to prove I was a manly man. I only had to watch 1 kid on a group ride 40 years ago not make a corner and hit a tree only to be paralyzed from the waist down for the rest of his life. Excessive leaning in a corner makes me wanna crap my pants and I still have my pride to keep the undies clean.
