    The ZX-10R

  3. Gen 3: 2008-2010 190/55 or 190/50 in FL

    The ZX-10R
    I'm torn between what tire size to get that will maximize the life of the tire. I live in Florida so everything is pretty much straight up riding so having the taller profile of the /55 doesn't really make a difference in riding since there are no real turns. But will it last longer with...

    I use my zx10r as a street bike - I don't think I'm going to take her to the track. I need new road tires. A really knowledgeable buddy of mine suggested that I get the Bridgestone BT-003 RS because they have a harder center for the street along with a softer edge for good grip on a lean. Are...
