That is like asking if one would like a banana or a peach.

They are so vastly different there is no comparison.

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

Go with the touring tire. I imagine with the type of riding you described, you got some pretty good chicken strips. Haha. A more grippy tire is going to wear so much faster and in the long run cost you a lot more money. You might be talking about like 5000+ mile difference in these two tires.

When you start going to track or doing canyon rides upstate, then you should start seeking out a sportier tire like the Metzler

Man, they're coming out of the woodwork. I'm afraid Rivers is going to have an aneurism.

Last October I was at a bike shop in NYC for the Dainese custom measure deal. There were probably 25 bikes out front and half were sport bikes. Saw only one bike that had less than 1 inch chicken strips. Must be heartbreaking to own a bike in that town.

No TDs, riding in cold wet conditions, with lots of paint strips, manhole covers and metal plates, the obvious choice would be the PR4.

The T30, Angel GT, Dunlop Roadsmart are good choices as well.

If TDs are anticipated, and riding in the rain was anticipated, the M7RR and the PR3 would be decent choices.




Just my opinion.

You know that saying

You can't fix stupid but you can euthanize it... I can see numerous people need euthanization

or maybe that isn't an actual saying, but it should be....

Well... maybe sit them in a corner on a hard stool for a bit. Or euthanize them. Either way.

I am not sure sitting on a hard stool for anything less than a week without food and water would teach some of these people anything..
easier to just euthanize, cheaper too
