SW Moto Tires having a sale

FWIW, SW Moto Tires is selling the Maxxis Presa Detours for under $200.00 for the set delivered. That's a good price.

Seems this price is just a bit lower than what others have reported in the past year.

And, the rear tire, although it seems to be a great handling and performing tire, is not long lived, 4000-6000 seems to be it. Front seems to last twice as long or more by all reports.

Seems this would be a "2-rear, 1-front" purchase.

If sticky grip and great handling outweighs long life to you, then I'd go with the Presa. I'm more for an equal balance between these two qualities, so I'll likely be going with Tourance at replacement time. If it weren't for the short life of the rear Presa, I'd go with them no doubt.
