Bridgestone TrailWings front and rear. good for the road ( I commute as well as trail ride ) but seem a little unsure in the sand or over gravel.
Reckon I'll give these babies a try next ..


Good pattern for trailing but still capable for the road.

120 rear is better for us heavy guys. If you are light stick with the 110. :cry:

I have been running the Maxxis IT 110/100-18, but I just bought a 120/100-18. I am going to give it a go next trip. In the past I used the larger size when I was riding my CR500. I thought it was a great tire. :cry:

I have those Trail wings, I must admit they are good on the road when scrubbed in, but here in the soaking wet, muddy U.K, they are shit off road!

Can anybody recommend a good road legal tyre that also has reasonable grip in the mud?
