I ran two Shinkos about a decade ago, I got a 70/30 and a full street one (can't remember the model for my supermoto. The 70/30 was complete garbage. In anything wet it was like jelly and offroad it tore up even in light dirt/gravel very quickly. When I changed over to my street rim/tire it was more of the same but super fun. The ass end could slide out easier and getting the rear to spin was a lot easier. It had grip but on a light bike it was far less then the Supercorsas I had put on when I bought the bike.So, my brother-in-law just traded in his '01 Vulcan for a '15 Victory Cross Country. The bike has 7500 mi on it and still has the original rubber. He was researching tires and landed on the Shinko's. He figured for the price ($300) he'd give them a shot and if he didn't like them he'd switch them out sometime down the road. Anyone have any experience with this particular tire, good or bad. Has anyone ever owned a Victory and have insight on what to look out for as far as reliability, performance upgrades, etc? He sat on well over a 100 bikes and the Victory was the only one that fit him without having to do modifications (he's a bigger dude).
