Thumbs up Tires

I have found my 1100 to be more enjoyable with them

Dunlop 404 too k555 will be just fine.

Almost indispensable.

Avon (currently offering some sort of discount promotion) Metz (Avon by any other name) Bridgestone, Dunlop, Chicken skins (Cheng shin). Michelin is my favorite, but they've cut way back on sizes and availability for bikes. Pilot GT was the best tire I've ever run: 12,000 miles (42psi) on a 900lb bike and virtually no sign of wear. Naturally they don't make them anymore...

But tires are as personal a decision as helmet, bike model, etc. You can get in a fight over practically anything. It's what works for you and your riding style/environment.

Stratowort and DonDar are currently running snow tires...
