Review Summary:
Look great with this type of bike. These tyres do the same to a bike as smoking does to people - makes it look 50 years older! The handling these tyres give is excellent. Third type of tires I've had on the bike and they are definately the best of the three. I've just ordered my second pair of WWW front/rear, after getting over 10000 Miles out of the last pair. I first had the view that these tires are not the stickiest. But, they do get stickier if you're only patient - after about 1000 Miles or so. Seems to take longer to break these in than other tires. I do about 400 Miles on my bike each week, and these tires have definately saved me a lot of money. Wish they would come in dual compound with the current compound in the middle (excellent wear) and softer sides of the tire (better grip). They look kick-ass on my bike too - they give it a proper retro look.
