mitchelin roads. if you after cheap the road 1's are good that what i have. poped a wheelie in the wet by mistake once, atrum_soul couldnt believe his eyes lol.

maxxis seem good, but i went for the bigger name when i had choice between the two,

before my bike had mitchelin, and didnt like them

I asked about your bike because very many people buy sports tyres for bikes that really won't put them to best use, and I'd suggest a B12 is such a bike. I'd go for the sport touring setup at a fair bit less cost. They work spot on with my ZZR1200 and look like they'll last pretty well too. thumbs

if you want a good set of dual compound tyres which are good on bigger bikes you cant go wrong with the dunlop road smarts got them on my xjr 1300 really good thumbs

got the maxis on mine and will be replacing with the same when these are worn out, which could take a while going on how they wear

Like ive said on most tyre threads, ive fitted more than i can remember... one customer will love a paticular brand and the next will hate them, my advise is just try a brand and see for yourself thumbs mine are due soon and im also not sure, might go for the pirelli corsa 111 or take a punt on the new maxxis diamonds thumbs
