Okay guys, so what is the hot tire choices out now? Are there any favorites that most people use? Back when I was on bikes before, I ran a Dunlop 695 rear and a 139 front. I loved them and I knew exactly how they would react. The 695 was the popular tire back then, can't remember if the 139 was or not but I liked it.

I have a bunch of new tires, Michelin's mainly but what to see if any of them match up to what you guys are running.

I buy based on pricing for the most part but when it comes to front tires I like the bridgestone 310 I believe. If you have tire take them with you and try them it does not take long to change one out unlest you are RAG BOY!!

Thanks Charlie but with your skill, you can make a flat tire seem great. (Not a reference to Bill)  ;D
I have 4 or 5 new front tires so I will do as you said and try each one. The one on the bike now has the same overall pattern as the D139 I used to run. Straight rows of knobs, no staggering. I don't mind changing the front to much but on the rear, my knuckles always seemed to be attracted to the sprocket.
