I have always like Mettzlers on my cruisers for tire life, Dunplops on the sportbikes for grip and feel.

I am about to try Pirellis based on the advice of a racer I know on the ZX14 and see how it goes.

The only tire I've ridden so far is the Pilot Power 2CT and I'm very impressed with them. I'm getting great mileage out of 'em and was able to get them for a decent price. My next tires may be Q2's or Pilot Powers

I'm on my 6th pair of Michelins. I'm also a big fan of Pirelli.

I love my Michelins, but I've also run Bridgestones and was happy with them.

I wish I ran through enough tires to develop a preference.

I do like the pirelli I have on right now though.

Pirelli
The Duc came with Pirelli Supercorsa tires. I have great confidence in these and that's carried me through the times where I "may" have overcooked a corner. I know I don't have near the talent level of a lot of riders so I count on the bike and tires to help me out.

I run Dunlop K70s as much as I can and for dirt Chin Shin cuz even though my Bultaco came with Metzlers they are just too expensive for the amount of time I spend riding it.

I plan to, but every track day I've scheduled this year has been wet. Haven't had near the amount of wear as I expected to have.
