Please excuse my ignorance but, are there 2 types of Bridgestones for the 1800 wing? I saw one place selling 7055/7060 front/rear and another selling G709/G704's. If these are 2 different tires which is best?

Those tire model numbers are for Bridgestone tires, not Dunlops. Go with the 704/709, not a bad combination, resonable mileage, great grip wet or dry...

Those B'stone numbers you gave are the same thing; one set is stock numbers and the other set the model numbers. Stay away from Dunslips and stick with the B'stones or Avon Cobras.

I ride through Prestonsburg on occasion, nice area.

You may also try the 702 for the rear. The only thing I have found I don't like about the 702 is..................well nothing. I hear it doesn't wear as well as the 704 but time will tell. It is a taller side wall. It has dropped the RPM's by about 300 and now the speedo is accurate. I haven't checked the odometer with the gps yet.:thumbup:

Those were also OEM on my 2007, they performed very well and I will keep the front tire in combo with my rear CT.

The 709 is the ultimate front tire. I did not think the 704 was 'that' great.
the best gripsters I have knows are the Metz OEM and the 850 70s (while they last).
