I checked out the Dunlop motorcycle and scooter tires. They had a couple of examples that I thought might be interesting. Thought I'd bring this up here in case anyone else was interested in seeing if Dunlop had anything you might want.

I've kinda gotten used to Dunlops on the 'motorcycles' I have and wonder if they'll rate the same for my LX. I don't know if you can reasonably expect a brand to be good in both arenas because I suppose they are different enough.

Any input you guys have is welcomed.

Leaning toward the Continental Zippy 1 at the moment though.

The old Dunlop TT90 was thee racing tire in the UK for years. It's been superceded by the TT91, but the 3.50 x 10 sizes of this tire I've yet to see in North America.

Lots of online motorcyle tire places carry the TT91 in 80/90 or 90/90 x 10"

Those tires are very sticky, I would like to try them. I have a feeling that they will wear out faster than Perellis though

Good to know the wider and lower profile tires are making it over.

These are soft compound racing tires, i.e. for smooth tarmac and not for riding in the wet. They will wear out fast, but on a cold day they'll warm up much faster.
