I have a set of Metzeler Ractec Wet (190 rear) tires on my bike at this time. I happy with them, so far. No matter what I put on there, the 12 eats them up. I have a cruiser for cruising... I'm a hooligan when I'm on the 12.

I'm on my second set of Roadsmarts, the original stones were aweful. I love the Roadsmarts, got about 13k out of the first set.

Trees are like magnets, if you look at one too hard you'll probably hit it.
I miss my 01, the silver was fastest!
08 Concours....as close to silver as I could get!

2 months ago put on a set of pilot power pure's on ( which is the new 2CT) and i love them, i went to a 180 on the rear and it handles like a dream. They seem to be wearing great, i do about 200 - 250 miles of mountain riding a week, and they have heaps of tread left.

Roadsmarts. Handle great loaded/unloaded dry/wet oh and good for roughly 13k miles.
