I use to LUV Continental tires - I ran multiple sets of Road Attacks on my Triumph Sprint, BMW K1200 and Ninja 650. But then better tires came out - Michelen PRs on the BMW and Pirelli Angels on the Ninja.
It's highly likely they've come out with better tires now, but I'm happy with what I've got.
Sorry I don't have any cruiser exp. to share.
Dang, that reminds me that I still have a brand new Conti in the garage - HAVE to put it on craigslist THIS spring!
