Shinko Scooter Tires - The Korean Surprise

If someone had told me a year ago I should fit Korean tires on one of my motorcycles I'd have called for some medical assistance from the nearest mental hospital. But here we are and my little scooter needs new tires, and thee last thing I'd cut corners on would be the only thing between it and a unpleasant meeting with the tarmac.However, with 12” wheels as standard your choice of sticky rubber is incredible. In the past I've run all sorts of tires on my scooters, but as I remember most of my scooters had 14” rims. Look through most tire catalogs and you will see that not much 12” rims are available, or the compound is as hard as plastic, stiff construction and unsuitable profiles. Anyway as I was shopping for tires I found the Shinko SR006

I cut my formative motorcycle teeth in an era when the only good tires came out of Europe or America, and OEM rubber on Japanese motorcycles was to be replaced at the first opportunity. That quickly changed as the Japanese with the likes of Dunlop and Bridgestone joined the premium European brands in offering sticky rubber. But Korean, Taiwan or even local Thailand brand names?

When Japanese manufacturer Yokohama pulled out of motorcycle tire production Shinko was there to pick up the pieces – machinery, technology and rubber recipe. The tread pattern resembles a dimpled slick, and is similar to the Yokohama racing tires of the time.

According to the Thai distributor Shinko is gaining popularity by scooter riders in South-East Asia, the Korean rubber being well priced and offering excellent traction and road handling.

Between logging in to multiple handles, copying everyone's style and finding time to be a complete dumbass, your bound to get a little tired and even a little insane.
But that's what mom's are for. Make sure she brings down some sandwiches and Sunny D on a fairly regular basis.

And that's with three bags of groceries strapped onto it.
I like to call it "Extreme Shopping Runs".
I've been taking good advantage of the last three sunny days and have racked up about 500 miles since the sun returned.
Kayaking my arms off too, as both kayak buddies are on vacation.
We did some big lake in The Bershires today and got to marvell at how the other half live out there.

Considering the scooter version of Sturgis:
The Vegas Rally. Its a little over 8 hours at highway speeds. Sounds too risky at the moment. but then I've only been on two wheels for two months now. By the spring... I will really really want to do it.
Here's hoping for sunny skies for y'all too!

    • Hey Nicholas what the h*** is your problem? Are you bothered because someone likes trucks? Did this person offend you by not wanting to talk about your little Yamaha Raz? Well scooter-boy back off and let them have their …guy should hate them just to fit in with you. Now why don't you get on your Little scooter and ride it out the nearest farm and tell them to their faces that they are red-necks and see if that scooter can out-run a truck.
