If I ever go back to the 21 that is the ONLY tire I will run. Some Walmarts even stock them but I haven't had any luck here in AZ.
Never tried the rear, but my friends in Florida swear by the S12 rear.

Pretty soft rubber though and seems to wear fast on the hardpack I have been on lately with the summer sun and dry breezes drying the track out so quickly.

and the S-12r.
Seems to be a great combo.
I had the M-12on the rear and it felt like ice skates.
I also had the S-12 on the front and it did good in soft-imdt but sucked on roads or hard pack.
My friend w/the m-12 on the back of his cr500 said the same thing........Must be something with the torque.
Seemed OK on launch or acc but really stunk on braking!
That's not thunder ridin' your BUTT .........
It's a whole Damn HURRICANE!!!!!!

What do you guys recommend for intermiediate to harDpadk I am in KS so it's pretty dry and hard most of the season..
The MH2sounds interesting and I have a M12 that was on the bike when I got it but it won't hook up to well on the hard stuff...
Do any of you suggest going with a matched front and rear or not?
