Funny, I was just at my local Powersports Accessories shop picking up an oil filter wrench when I noticed the Shinkos on the tire rack. I asked the owner about them as I noticed he was stocking quite a few and that they were fairly inexpensive (he also carried Dunlops and Michelins). He explained that they've been VERY popular since last fall due to the price and the fact that they were pretty sticky. He also said that they didn't last long but that the performance and price made up for the low durability (at least in the eyes of most of his customers). Apparently the squids on their Hyabusas have made them THE tire of choice for this area as their "stickiness" helps them to get the front tire up on the stretched bikes fairly easily. At least that is what the owner told me. He wasn't trying to sell me a set... he was just answering my questions.
