Okay, it's NOT the tires.

Comments about Pirelli Sport Demon Motorcycle Tire:
I've had Bridgestones on my '93 BMW R100R since I bought the bike, so I thought I would try the Pirellis, and so far they are fine. It took a bit of fiddling to get the rear tire back on the bike, but that's not unusual with these shaft-drive bikes.My old tires were worn and had too many freeway miles on them, so the transition to new tires with even tread all around rather than little on the bottom and lots on the sides took an afternoon to get used to, and I'm going to have to find some twisties to get the sides properly scuffed, but these tires have good grip and feel, and I'll have to wait and see how many miles I get on them. The back of this bike has always felt a bit low to me, but after changing the shock and now with new tires, I'll have to look further as to why. Hmmm... maybe the custom seat.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Daily rider of a Bonneville T100 and previously kept Metzlers on both front/rear. 70 mi/day average and all upright, motorway speeds. Although grip isn't award winning with Metzlers, neither are these Pirelli Sport Demons for either dry or wet. Emergency handling broke the rear grip on 3 occassions. Rear tyre treadlife will barely make it to 10k whilst the Metzler was 14-15k average. Since I noticed no difference in grip, I'm going back to a longer treadlife. I was unimpressed.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
A great value

This is a performance oriented tire that brought increased grip & confidence when cornering.

6,000 Happy Miles!
from Spring Valley, CA
After gathering anecdotal evidence, I put a set on my 85 Honda VF700S Sabre sport tourer about two years ago. I've owned the bike 29 years and had numerous sets of tires, and after 6,000 miles of weekend riding with some fairly quick people on San Diego area's twisty mountain blacktops I have to say I LOVE these skins! Wanted radials, but these Demons are the next best thing. Tires show little wear, grip and track well in corners, and track true with no more wiggle in the sraights.
