Actually i want the one with slightly better road manners at full lean.

My 908 at full lean does not feel very stable. The 908 also spins up too easily on wet roads under throttle. My last bike was a v-strom with a tourance exp front and regular tourance rear and it handled on road better than my ktm 990 adventure with 908 rear and tkc80 front. I am convinced the handling difference is 95% the tires. With the knobbies it is a bit slow to turn in and then at full lean at speed it lacks that planted feel. On the other hand the exp front was truly dangerous in mud.

Trail Attacks are probably my favourite. Right up there with everything else.

You might find THIS interesting. I'm running a pair of Dunlop Trailmax's at the moment and so far I'm very impressed.
