Last year I rode in sport class with a DRZ and I had a michelin sirac front tire and an avon am23 vintage roadrace rear tire. I was happy with both of those however, I am interested in a set of maxxis supermoto specific sportsman tires. I've seen these on Moto-connection.com. Can't wait to wear out the tires I have so I can try out the maxxis tires.
I have switched to a CRF for this season so I will be experimenting with tires to see what works best.
I'm running a 1991 RM125. I figure I don't want to spend to much money just yet...wanna make sure I enjoy it before dumping to much money into it. I did that with roadracing and now I'm looking for something a little cheaper!
I converted my '97 KDX 220 over to motard last year, and put the Avon's on it. Really, that's all I did. I didn't upgrade brakes or suspension or anything else, I just wanted to see if I liked it before going off the deep end. Then of course I bought a KTM 625SMC, and am loving it!
The Avon's are OK, but the 17" wheels on the KTM make a huge difference. If I ever decide to convert the KDX all the way, 17" wheels would be the first big upgrade.

I haven't heard of anyone trying out supermoto and not becoming addicted.

I'm sure your right! I ordered the Avons today, we'll give them a shot. Like anything else I do, I'm sure I'll end up getting a new bike before the second weekend. Heck - I tried out a Ducati one day last year and now I have 3 of them! I'm really looking forward to it!
Hey Viper, I have a set of Bridgestone TW dual sport tires that are the correct size for your machine...let them go real cheap.
Rode them in the sportsman class for a year, they stick real good on pavement and are decent in the dirt. IM me if your interested.
