I've had this tire on the rear wheel of my scooter for the past 8,000Km and am very happy with it. Yes, you read that right - scooter, as in motorcycle. I chose this particular tire for it's symmetrical thread pattern that is relatively deep and goes high enough on the edges of the tire (important for leaning in corners :) ). It handles very well on all surfaces and under all conditions (I rode over 800Km of gravel roads on Labrador in safety and comfort). It's also dirt cheap in US, about 1/4 of the motorcycle tire price, but last at least twice as long. There are probably better tires out there that would satisfy my requirements, but I'm not going to look for them too hard as long as I can get this one.
