Continental tires?

Going to be purchasing new tires for my six and came across a review rating the continental's very high. Thinking of going with either the conti's or bridgestone's. Any input would be appreciative. Thanks.

What kind of riding are you doing? The continentals are a generic tire. Hard but usable. If you need any performance aspect of a tire, the continental is going to come up short.

Long history in rubber and tires. Been around since 1871. Not sure of the quality in motorcycle tires though.

i just put on a set of Qualifiers on my 14 and love them> A little soft but those things hold the ground when you neeed them too. I also went up to a 200 in the back so I guess that helps to but it was so worth the money

wish I had a motard / dual sport, it'll be next

I love my conti Road attacks, they perform great on the street and do good at the track for my level of riding. i imagine I'll have to upgrade to the sport attack as I get better
there are tons of SV guys running the Contis and most if not all say they're great. has good write up on both the

road attack...

and sport attack...

Can't help on the Conti's..... but I did just put a set of Metzeler M3's on my bike and I love them so far.....but I mostly ride twisties.... I don't know how well they will hold up to city riding.
