Yeah ky, I have had a Conti Motion on the front & rear.....and the only time I'll ever use them again would be for a long tour. I would definately NOT recommend these tires for sporty-type riding.....they just ain't up to the challenge!! They take a L-O-N-G time to warm up....and even when warm, are nowhere near what you need for throwing the busa into hard & tight corners!! But as a strictly "touring-only" tire....they are great for mileage!
The biggest problem with touring is that eventually you will find a set of twisties that you want to have a bit of fun with.......and twisties - touring tires - and fun, don't always go well together!!
I use them as my winter tires and got over 6k out of them. 90% of my commute is on a straight 4 lane, I've never really ran them in the mountains. I use much better tires in the summer for my mountain trips.
