No, not better that I've found yet, but at least as good, but the chatter about the change from radial to crossply had me wondering about how it feel, particularly with another brand rear. It feels great. I have always liked Cobras, and before them, Venoms, on the front. They have always worked well on dirt as well. The old one still had legal amount of tread, the TWIs weren't level with the surface, but would have been by the end of next week, doing 550 km each week at the moment. Their dirt road grip was way down, try to edge out of a rut and you'd feel them start to slide on the sides of the rut. That's what dropped me 3 weeks ago.So the Cobra chrome is better than the old cobra or just better than an old tire?
My track is a lot better now, I pulled another ride out of the shed and used it for a couple of days . Air-cooled 45° V4, with separate barrels and heads, make a good basis for a 1200cc torque monster twin.
