The have some Michelin Pilot Sport tires for my scoot for $64. Not bad. I have some Maxis NYLON tires on my scoot now. That's right, nylon.

They are in good shape, but I may swap them out for the Pilot's.

Alex, if you want to drag knee, I think these Michelin Boppers will help you do it. http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...oter-Tire.aspx

I have heard good things on the Boppers and you should pick up 1-2 mph as well.
