I know the Pirellis are popular with the Ducati crew, but I’ve never felt like they stuck to the road as well as Michelin’s. Maybe it’s my riding style, which is not super aggressive. But we shall see. Every bike is balanced differently and the power delivery can make a difference with tire wear too.I looked for a month or so before I found the S4.
It turned up 5 minutes from home.
I got Michelin power RS for the S4 when I first got it.
Punctured the rear and went pirelli for the replacement.
It reminded me why I wound up only using pirellison the balius when I had it.
There's something in the shape that let's you lean effortlessly.
I imagine I will learn to live with the light if I must. I was a little spoiled with TuneECU on my Triumph.On my Evo it uses the Seimens ecu and I have found there is no easy way to reset the service light yet. I have learned to live with it, although my local duc guru says just stop by and he will reset it...
As for tires, it is strange how 2 different people have such differing opinions on tires. I couldn't wait to get the Pirellis off. The Monster has the new Michelin GPs on and am right back in my happy place. Yes, I am a Michelin fanboy and have been one since the first Pilot Power.
Ahhh! That could be it too. I know road composition can vary in different countries and even different states. I had a British friend who always talked about how the roads in England just let the tires grip so much better. And in my own experience the roads in Tennessee became very slick when it got hot or wet compared to roads in Michigan or northern states where they need to consider things like freezing, salt, etc.Yes I found the same thing... in the heat of summer they stuck like glue. I was just pondering QLDs4 being in Aus and if he was in a warm part of town. All I know is last fall I KNEW the Pirellis were coming off.
Lol. This is at my winter job. When I was in the Arctic -30's°c was just another day. You're missing out mate. NOT.I have NEVER seen snow if that clears it up for you.
I feel cold when the temp is lower than 15 C.
I see threads on winterizing and wonder what the big deal is.
Although I live in Vancouver, B.C. and it's pretty mild in winter. But you need to like rain.15C is 59F to my brain, and I like to joke that freezing is 50 here in Lala land, so 10C.
One reason I like it here.
