Just wondering if anybody has used them and what they thought of them for street riding. I'm not concerned with wet weather as I don't ride in it and I'm not worried about how long they last. I'm only concerned with dry pavement grip compared to other tires like the Pilot Sport.

I have a 2002 SR with 2300 miles and what looks like the original Maxxis Nylon tires :WTF:, now. The look OK tread wise, but also look "dry."

I have become rather fond on my 130/70/13 on the rear. That's the size I was looking for. I'm sure if I looked harder I could find a 70 series.

Seems like the Boppers are at a good price!

Too bad I just got new tires for one of my '07 Morini's

If you want those tires in that size, and that place actually has them in stock, you should get them. I believe they don't make that tire anymore in that size....
