    In praise of Motorcycle Doctors and Conti Road Attack tyres.

    Just had the latest Conti Road Attack 3 tires and a set of custom floating discs and Brembo brakes fitted to my Thruxton 1200 by George at Motorcycle Doctors. I'm always impressed with the work he does. Like fixing an idling problem on my previous GSX-R750 on his first look. I had previously taken it several times to the bike shop I brought it new from and they never managed to fix it. He's also did a professional job of installing my Tec Custom shocks, springs and de-cat x-pipe last year. The rear shocks didn't come with a proper fitting for my bike, but he got them installed properly anyway.

    Can't say much about the Road Attack 3's yet as they've just been put on, but I previously had the Road Attack 2s and was really impressed with them. The stock tyres that came with my Thruxton 1200 never felt confident enough to push to the edge, but never had that problem with the Road Attack 2s. Once worn in I was quickly pushing them to the edge and scraping the foot pegs around corners. So I'm expecting the 3s will be all that and more.

    I ran the previous version on a Hornet 900 3-4 years back. Rated them well up there for confidence, feedback and stick.

    I'm thinking of getting a set for my R1 and would appreciate your thoughts after using them for a while.
