thanks!
I put a set of shinko 244's on my girlfriends klr and like them. Theyre going on mine next.

Very similar to the 270's mentioned above.

Other people may feel different. I'm used to knobbies.

IMO

Road- good handling, quiet enough, tracks well. Not a sport bike tire but good enough.

Gravel- as good as can be expected.

Dirt- I'm not quite used to them. Its weird to me. They feel like a true dirt tire until they slip. Basically they hook up good, but if you get in a slippery section you're going to be spinning a lot. They don't dig in like a knobbie.

Wet grass- umm... have someone ready with a camera. I manged to wreck in the yard the first time I rode it.
