    Comments about Shinko 011 Verge Radial Motorcycle Tire:

    good tire for the money, works good on dry pavement but not wet pavement. if you mostly ride in good, read dry conditions this is a good handling tire not the stickiest I have ever used but it works.
    My rule for tires is put the sport/sticky tire on the front for the best ride, if there is any slipping let the back tire get loose first

    Comments about Shinko 011 Verge Radial Motorcycle Tire:

    You can't beat the looks and/or performance of these tires for what you pay. Unless you are a professional rider who can tell the difference between these and OEM (if there is any) save yourself some $ and buy a pair of Shinko's.

      Comments about Shinko 011 Verge Radial Motorcycle Tire:

      Bikebandit.com: [...] price was right, [...]Shinko Verge Tire: I've got just over 100 miles on the tire. That inlcudes hot dry weather and downpours. The handling was great either way. I felt confident in cornering and braking hard. I ride approx. 500-600 miles a month. I'll be back with a more in depth review.

        I do mostly touring on my 09 Versys.When in sport mode I can use all my corning clearance with confidence. Dry grip is as good as any other sport touring tire. Wet grip is fair. I've had better tires for wet grip. I currently have 9k miles on this set with some life left. For me the Verge Is the best value.

            Thanks for your question! The pattern is correct on the tire, Is is mainly for dry weather riding.

            Help me out here: are we to assume you have the tire mounted correctly? If so, then the grooves moving from inner tire patch to outer is correct. As the tire roles forward the first portion of the tire groove to contact water would be the inner portion. This allows accumulated water (immediately in front of the tire contact patch, when any tires meet water on the road surface) a place to get squeegeed into and channeled to the outer tire and away form the contact patch area of the tire. If the channels are reversed by improper tire mounting then the water would be collected and channeled TOWARDS the contact patch, aggravating the amount of accumulated water trying to pass between the tire contact patch and the road surface. This would bring hydroplaning onset much sooner. I sure hope that helps makes things clearer. Rubber side down!!
