    I ran d606's front and back on a Super Sherpa and thought they were sketchy as hell. The front always felt loose except on pavement.

    Welcome and congrats on a very nice looking TW! There are many threads on here reqarding tires ( as well as oils! ) but it always comes down to personal choice and where you plan on riding your TW. For me the Kendra up front mated with the Ceros in the rear seems almost perfect and balanced. Over the long weekend we rode on everything from wet loose blasted rock to sand and slime, both tires self clear at low speeds and the traction was fantastic. Your stock rear will take you most places you want to go, just play with your air pressures and you will find quite a difference between 25 psi down to 4 to 5 psi.
    Once you have had some time to break in that new rubber, let us know what your thoughts are. Again, nice looking bike!
