I have had the stock front tire on my bike since new, not knowing that a "real tire" would make such a difference.
I installed an M12 Crosscompetition and all of my cornering fears are gone.
What tires have you guys had luck with?

I like the s12 front and m12 rear.

Front: D756, awesome in the desert and mixed riding in sand, rocks, and a little hardpack.
Rear: currently also a D756, works great except on dirt roads, where it wants to hang the rear end out farther than any other tire I have used. But it does reach a limit where it locks up and grips quite well. Just don't chop the throttle!
Both seem to work well in light muddy conditions.

I really like the mh-2 front and swap between ms-mh 2 rear.
