Given 93% while driving a Aprilia SL1000 Falco (180/55 R17) on mostly country roads for 2,000 spirited miles
Oh I love them so much! I wore out a front ContiSportAttack while wearing out two rear Dunlop's which I really disliked. Fitted a Michelin Pilot Power set and had some front end locks on braking on a very ruff surface and some rear end skids without really provoking it, so I took them off before I would kill myself - now they work really well on a RST Futura, which is a much heavier bike. Then I bought a new pair of ContiRoadAttacks for a Falco. Front never missed a beat - not on previous Conti, not on the set I ride now. Never even gave me a single hint of a reason for doubt, always 100% confident in front grip even in braking and closing a turn in full lean. It grips best with a bit lower pressure (1.9 bar front, 2.3 rear) but it loses a tiny bit of feedback and becomes a bit lazier than with higher pressure which is normal. I did experience some rear end slides and rodeo style skids, but I was already WAY over all limits. Reactions were predictable and the bike stayed under control virtually all the time. Once again - I simply love them. Yes, I will buy again. I will definitely buy again!

Given 93% while driving a Suzuki SV650S (160/60 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 25,000 average miles
I had a couple of Conti Sport Attack in my Suzuki SV650 and I loved them.
I use the SV650 for commuting, but at weekends I usually go for canyon twisties carving some curves.
They are very predictable even at fast cornering.
They get warmer fast and the wear is very good, considering other brands and models from the same category (Rear:8500Km Front:12500Km)
In this bike I had rear Bridgestone bt-016 (excelent grip, but they wear off to fast); rear Metzeler M5 (good grip, the lean is very fast, the wear is acceptable) rear Pirelli Angel ST (acceptable grip after getting warmer, wear is excellent (already 9000Km and maybe going to reach 15K000m)
In resume: The Continental Conti Sport Attack are a fine balance between a excellent sport tire grip and long wear tire, offering confidence in the curves. The braking on corners is very godd also.

Given 96% while driving a Honda CIVIC 1.6 VTEC (195/45 R16) on mostly motorways for 15,000 spirited miles
Best tyre I ever had on my car. I drive a Honda Civic VTI. The problem with these cars is when you lower them, you can't adjust the chamber. You get inside tyre wear and when they look good on the outside, they are completely gone on the inside. With these tyres I never had these problems. On wet roads the car just sticks to the road. But in dry weather is when the fun begins. They are also god for track use and don't wear so fast. Have had them for 3 years and for a normal driver they would be still good for one season. Would I buy them again? Definitely!

Given 80% while driving a Kawasaki ZX10r (190/50 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 2,200 spirited miles
I tried these tyres on my ZX10R they provide good grip in the dry and were very predictable but I found them a bit wayward in the wet. Miles were quite good for a sports tyre around 2200 miles. I prefer pirelli diablo corsa 3's for my ZX10 as an all round tyre.
