One would think 1900 miles should do a decent job in running in tyres.
Hey thanks for the headsup  :028:

Too throw in my two pence worth.

Got my biffer last Oct with Conti Road Attack and 3800 miles.

The rear was squared off and i REALLY didnt like the tyres at all but being a tight git ran them for another 3000 miles.

I did a bit of research and classing myself as an average rider  in the end bought a pair of Avon Storms as they were cheap and superceeded.

Compared to the contis they are brilliant , based on a few hundred miles riden they give great grip and a good ride. I cant comment what they are like on knee down jaunts, in the wet good in the greasy mid dry/wet stage ok, but then I slow down anyway !
