Can we get some 190 tire sizes in that list as well? Probably have to get some of the guys to chime in with what they are running.

Good idea. Plus the stock Dunlop is 194mm so not far off 190mm.
What 190's are good? Maybe you can post 'em in the same format.
If you guys come up with more rear tires it'll be just that much handier!

Would you like me to PM you with the info so you may post it in the 1st original post or just make another post in the same format? I will start tonight when I get home.

The Pilot Road2's and the Conti Road Attacks get my vote all the time.

A good ride is one from which you can walk away. A great ride is one after which you can use the bike again.
