On the ZX-12, I hated the Dunlops... After about 1000 miles, they were mush to ride on... I switched to BT-010 Bridgestones and never had a problem after that... great feedback.. not as quick cornering, but definitely SOLID when you were lened over... The added benefit of them was they lasted twice as long due to the dual aligned compund...

For my VTR that I currently have, I have BT012's on the way.

Ya, and nobody has mentioned H2's yet. I have M1's and couldn't be happier but for some strange reason I think the H2's are going to be the ultimate street tire. We will see after 1 more M1, can't beat the bang for the buck on the metzlers and right now money is an issue

Well guess I'll throw my .02 out, have ridden on Dunlops most of my two wheeled time but recently changed to Avons. Started on the Azaro II AV 35/36s and was pleased; good stick and decent mileage, replaced those with AV 39/40s and they sticccckkkkkk like crazy!!!! Not expecting more than 3k from them but that's ok after the 39/40s are knackered will put on some 208s just for compairison.

Btw my Old Slo Pos!!!

a friend of mine, had the m1s for about a month (maybe a little more) but its time for new rear.. he doesnt do burn outs, or wheelies just some hardcore twisties.. this week he missed out on our weekly ride because of this, now hes going back to the darkside (dunlops) for milage...
