Hi Steve, I've always used Bridgestone Battlax BT45's and a lot of other owners will agree, although someone else might recommend something different.
I think for the price though you'll not get a better tyre for grip and confidence.
Look, my paintwork hasn't got "Fish scales" :x they're "Dragon scales" right!!! However, after some thought, I will accept "Black Marlin" or "Swordfish", but definitely not "Haddock" or "Cod".
