For you 2006 Scrambler owners, what model Bridgestone Trailwings are used. From some of the pics I've seen, I could make out the "TW42" on the rear, but what's on the front? And what sizes on front and back?

I like the look of the tire and wanted to put them on my Honda 450 scrambler. Any comments on how they handle? Thanks in advance for the feedback.

Badhorse,

The Scrambler front is a Trailwing 101, size 100/90X19". The rear is Trailwing 42 130/80X17". Bridgestone actually show the partner for the 101 as the 152, which has a less lumpy tread than the 42. I found, as others have, the ride to be a bit twitchy. I couldn't get a Trailwing 152 from my regular supplier (out of stock) so got a Continental Escape 140/80X17" which made the bike more stable, especially cornering two up.
