    I think everyone has a different opinion on this, because everyone has different needs

    What works on a lighter, lower powered bike doing small amounts of road will probably not work for a bigger bike doing loads of miles and enduro riders will need something different to a trail rider etc. etc.

    I use Metzler 6 Day's and happy enough with them (old fart on a 250  Very Happy ) but stuff like the Maxiss IT seem to be popular as are most things Michelin with the enduro boys

    The only thing we all agree on is that AC10's (especially the fronts) are somewhere between crap and plain dangerous

    Kiss a few toads and see what suits maybe best cheers
