A little bit of shopping...

is always good for the soul, and when it's new tyres it's a special day indeed.

These are the Diablo Strada tyres from Pirelli. Sexy aren't they?! I've been tossing up whether or not to get some new tyres for the past couple of months. Selecting the right set of tyres has been making me put off the choice, but I finally decided to go with these Pirelli ones because of their performance. For my style of riding they offer me a great balance between wear and traction.

My first ride on them yesterday afternoon was so bloody enjoyable. Rolling around the street corners I could feel they provided me with perfect turn-in and lean. As I approached the home stretch I could feel that with a bit of heat in the tyres I could start scrubbing them in with a little more confidence. I just have to say "SWEET!"

Here's a local sign that I find rather amusing...

I know all to well the agony of selecting new tyres. After a severely dangerous set of Dunlops I finally settled into a steady pattern of Bridgestone Turanzas for my car. The last set however I was convinced to try Pirelli's P Zeros. I think I may now be a convert. Yes they are more expensive, and they'll probably wear quicker too, but all that glorious grip is heaven!

I should really get a life right? Anyway I hope you can make the most of your new tyres, especially now that the weather is on the improve!

To be honest, I didn't expect a single comment/response to my tyre post... Glad you did. I'm hoping the Pirelli's give me many km's of enjoyment. :)

Ahhh, and here I was hoping you'd do a Pirelli calendar style photo of you with said tyres... ;-)
