Continental Road Attack 3 Tyres
on: August 12, 2017, 04:52:09 PM
Fitted these to my XR - great tyre - even better than my Metzeler RT 01 I had before - highly recommended sports touring tyre. Also as no release agent used in manufacture no need to scrub in. £295 fully fitted in UK

Paul, wondering how you are getting on with the RA3’s? Am getting a pair fitted on my bike I am picking up next week. Had  them on my RS and thought they were brilliant.

tyres are great, best tyres I have ever had and wear very well too - previous tyres were Metz RT 01. Fully recommend and will buy the RA3's again next time

I have heard that they are grippier than the Sport Attack 3’s. Is that possible?

Couldn't comment on a comparison to the RA 3's... but can confirm that the Sport Attack 3 are a fantastic set of hoops...
Didn't feel comfy with the OEM Battlax on the track but no problem wearing down the sliders now  :156:

The RA3 are the only tires I use now. I run the piss out of them and still get 6000 miles per set. They turn in and handle great with heaps of traction.

The bike I have bought had 1700 miles on the clock with PR4’s on them so first thing I did was tell the dealer to whip them off and put something decent on!

Nothing really ‘wrong’ with PR4s - so perhaps you merely wanted to establish ‘cred’ with the dealer?   :015:

My local small bike workshop-owner tells the taile.......

“I always telll guys to take it easy on the new tyres until they are scrubbed in.”

“They’ll be scrubbed in , by the time I get to the end of the carpark”. (Says Billy Big Balls)

“Hang on - I’ll just go and get my dustpan and brush”

Not sure it was possible to establish 'cred' with the dealer as was trading in an RS!
