Yeah, do a "search" for "tires".

It kinda depends on where you ride and how you ride Dave.

I like the Pirelli Sport Demons. They have excellent grip in both dry and wet, and they have great road feel. However, they have a slightly shorter life. About 7000 mi rear, and 10,000 mi front. They are also a little more expensive than average.

I do not ride extremely hard, but do a fair bit of sport riding.

I've tried a bunch on the K75 over a stretch of 100K miles and talked to lots of folks. I think the best over all choice for that bike is the Michelin Macadam 50E front anf 50 rear. They ride soft, handle nimbly, and stick well wet or dry. Most people get close to 10K miles on a set.

It depends on your riding style. but I have been very happy with the Brigstone s[pitfires I've run on my rt for the past 70k miles. Depending on some unknown variables Ive seen 10 to 15k on a set. they do well under most conditions and they're not expensive.

I have had great service from the Dunlop K491Elite II.
They last up to 25K and make a great touring tire. It
really depends on your riding style. The closest my tires
get to the Chicken Strips is when I turn into Colonel
Sanders. I ride to see something other than the yellow
line down the middle of the road. Mike:brow
