Contiroadattack3gt

Hey there has anyone tried the contiroad attack3

I recently received a copy of the moa magazine and continental has a flyer about their touring tires. theres free roadside assistance with purchase of a tire,

The flat tire roadside assistance is a pretty good motivation to get a set of tires if performance and price is comparable.

The GT version required for the K1600 will not be out before summer 2018. The standard version won a comparison test by the German magazine 'Motorrad'. I will definitely try it next opportunity and I am sure it is not made in China.

I am tempted by these, and the GT appears to be available (in the UK anyway). Need to get rid of the horrible OEM Bridgestones.

Not in any real rush as its winter and the roads have been heavily salted

I don't doubt that they are fine tires. The set I saw last weekend at the motorcycle show was marked Made in Germany.
My only concern was the same one commonly reported with the Metzeler Z8 - there is no way to determine how much wear has taken place at the center of the tire.
It would be so easy to incorporate a dimple in the rubber, as is done on slicks, to eliminate guessing.

The Roadsmart III, as suggested above, seems to be the best I've experienced on the GTL. Good handling and reasonably "sticky". Nice confidence boost over the Michelin PR4s. Not sure what kind of mileage to expect, though. With that said, I'd be very interested in opinions on the Conti.

Ive been running Pirelli Angel GTs since their release, and Im completely happy with them, however, I recently put a set of Continental Trail Attack2s on my GSA. While they are pretty ordinary in the current muddy conditions of my driveway, Im actually impressed at how they feel and respond. Considering they really are just an aggressive road tyre, they will handle most conditions confidently. If the price is right, based on the current set, I could be tempted away from Pirelli set number eight, to a set of Conti GTs. The I spoke to the Australian distributor last year about them, and theyve been delayed almost 12 months to fine tune them. I think first reports will be interesting.

I read (with deep interest) the review in the latest BMW "ON magazine", but it said jury was still out pending the longevity tests, tbc... which I would think would be the next publication or so.

One-year bump. Any updates or other experiences anyone can share on these? Im just now in the process of procuring a new GT (so need to change my sig., I suppose), but am curious about how the GTs hold up. Thanks!
