Try pirelli scorpion sync's.... They get pretty rave reviews from the mags on the Buell CityX... Otherwise the Dunlop 208's that come on the stock SM I guess are pretty good... Rode on some on my buddies CBR600, not bad when warm, on a lighter bike they should last alot longer. Handled rain pretty well.

Also try the Continental ContiForce SM. Sometimes they are hard to find but there have been nothing but good marks that I have heard.

those continental tires look good but do you think they would be good in the rain too.

I still like my Metzeler Sportec M1's. They heat up quickly, are predicatable, good in the rain, etc. :banghead:

I have the Continentals on my converted E. The seem to work really well in the dry pravement. I have noticed the rear slipping a bit on wet pavement if I really apply the brakes hard.

I haven't had too many problems doing the stoppies with them on the dry pavement and I've had the bike up to 60 plus MPH of gravel roads and don't feel uncomfortable.

I am running the 150 on back on a 4.25 rim.
