It really depends on what you can obtain in NZ, who will fit it, and how much are you willing to pay?

Most, from a wide selection of users, state that the Michelon Pilot Activ, mounted in reverse is the way to go. Others prefer it mounted the correct way, while others prefer other brands.

What colour underpants do you wear (assuming you do wear them :D ), - it is that sort of discussion. It gets a bit personal, as we all have preferences - some reasonable and some unreasonable.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

Regardless of the brand, it should meet two requirements.
1. Be round
2 Have lots of tread
After that it would be your preference.
On mine, I kept it simple....I had a stock one recommended by Honda for the 1500.

Michelon Pilot Activ, mounted in reverse is the way that I go....I also mounted balancer discs and the combo really does improve the ride and tire wear.
