Continental Conti Twist

Well, 10,000 kms down on the mighty Suzuki UZ125 and the factory fitted Dunlop rear tyre finally gave up the ghost. This gave us the perfect oportunity to test out something new and exciting... well some new rubber.

I never had any real problem with the original tyres, however when Derbi (our local Conti importer) sent out a Twist for the rear I was VERY impressed. You see it is easy to be happy when there is no comparison available. So I had the Continental fitted up and gave it a few hours of gentle riding to clean off any untoward slippery stuff (there wasn't any, the tyre was excellent from the minute it went on) and get the tyre worn in a bit.

Long story short I was instantly comfortable with the level of grip, to the point where I was using the entire width of the tyre almost instantly. Lean angle is progressive and confidence inspiring and the level of grip is incredibly good, at no point did I even worry about the possiblility of the rear letting go.

The wet weather grip is also admirable, I don't like to push the bike on the road in the wet but in normal day to day riding with a slippery road the tyre felt plenty stable which is a fantastic with the Auckland winter advancing at high speed.

So if you are needing a serious road tyre for your scooter, just go buy a twist, they really are that good!
