Used to run Dunnies 208's, now got a set of Pirelli's Super Dragons. I have yet to put them on (winter season), but I hear they are the SHIT!
So I will let you know how they run in a couple of months.

when i got my 04 1k i was thinking that the handeling was okay, nothing spectacular. after about 1k miles on them i switched them out for a set of pilot powers and wow did the bike come alive. huge, huge difference over the stockers.

I'll run either metz z6's or m-1's depending what they have at the shop whenever I'm there for some new rubber.

Pilot Powers, but I haven't ridden hard enough to tell much difference, though they do feel better than the stockers.

Don't know if they are out yet, but watch for the M3s. Based on the reviews and how good the old M1s were I'm sure they will be excellent street tires .

I think the M3s are out. I was advised last week that a dealer I know has them in stock :dblthumb

I got a newb question, and well since I am one to motorcycles I don't mind if I look stupid asking. My back tire has a plug in it, is that okay. The tread is good and I don't want to fork out the cash just yet unless it's a big no no.

I just ran Dunlop GP-A's at the track. Damn, those are the finest tires I've ever turned a wheel with! Just incredible traction, feel and predictability.
When they do start to slide, it's more like a gradual 'smudge' feeling. So forgiving and confidence inspiring.

Not a sermon... just a thought. :cheers
