Hey!

If those are the Sportmax D-214 tires that (i think) comes with our Z650's, even in South Africa, what's your take on their performance?

Hi, I am actually looking at replacing them very soon. They are ok in the dry for just riding around but if you are going to push in the corners they are not very good at all. In the wet they are absolutely terrible, downright dangerous if you ask me.

Michelin road 5 or Dunlop roadsmart 3 depending on availability.
