I have used the Shinko 777's on my 1300 and the 1800. I stuck with the BW because just what Smurfy said. Looks good... hard to keep clean. I'm lazy

I just put a 777 W/W on with the stock rim and I really like it it grips good and looks awesome haven’t had to clean it yet but it will probably be a bit of a pain lol but it’s worth the looks.

I like them...I’m not aggressive rider....but brakes well and holds in the turns....IMHO good tire for the money....depending on mileage might buy again...

I am currently in need, but funds are low. So I'm considering
