    Matching tires means nothing on a motorcycle, the back is always going to come around in a sliding stop. Unless the bike has antilock brakes.

    I used the Shinko front and rear at the beginning of this riding season and am very pleased up to this point at about 500 miles of riding.

    That's good info. I've been wondering about Shinko.
    Are they made in China though?
    Damn shame there isn't an American Manufacturer for our tires.

    My next set of tires will be shinkos after reading what @dentdude36 says about them after having them on 2 different bikes he never seems to steer anyone in the wrong direction and knows a lot about the bikes.

    I use Avon front and rear on my BG Chopper and have had good luck with them. I think they are made in England
