I'd be interested in opinion also. I'm planning on putting on more street oriented tires and these are certainly attractive pricewise.

Trailwings have the nickname - Deathwings. Not 100% sure on the facts behind that.

My brother installed one recently and was quite pleased with it on a recent 1000 mile trip. We ride pavement and packed gravel for the most part. Tire probably is okay for that but forget mud and the loose stuff.

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.

"It's a friggen motorcycle, it's not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you shit your pants every now and then. "

The Avon Gripster is only like $13.00 more. at http://www.americanmototire.com/cata...th=200_201_203.
I have never heard anything but good from anyone who has had them. I have only had mine for a couple hundred miles. I am really pleased so far. I had no trouble with their service either.

You are right, but that was about the TW41 & 42, not the TW22 he is showing here. Quite a different tread pattern.

My google search turned up mixed results (good & bad), so I figured I 'd ask here.
