Pilot Powers are a popular choice. Most bikes can handle the 150 rear, some can take the 160. We generally end up off-road at some point, and yes they handle like but it's fun watching people crash.

I have seen a lot of Avon Distanzias also. Supposed to get a little more traction in the dirt.

Right now I'm running Bt-016's and really like them. Previous tires were contiforce sm, regular contiforce, a couple shinkos, and pirelli scorpions. Really didn't like the shinkos, very hard and slippery. Loving the 016's, I will definitely buy another set. Don't buy a 160 rear for a 4.25 in rear wheel. They handle like uber . 5 inch rims are a different story though.

Slicks front and rear and they work great. Both in the dirt and on the track.

It is very easy to find out where I have been on the dirt track. Just follow my tread pattern.
