I just ordered some Trail Attacks on motorcycle-superstore.com for much less than the local dealer with no sales tax and free shipping, check them out if you haven't already.

I too recently bought a Battlewing on Motorcycle Superstore...

Extra tips:

2% Bing Cashback comes off top (was 4% when I bought mine)

There is always a coupon to be found for the site:

Strange that nobody mentions the Shinko 705 anymore.
Never the less....a great tire and very reasonable.

I've been reading about the shinko raven. very mixed reviews. I need someone with real experience to get me to buy them. FJR guys aren't the same as us. I am 99.9% road with .1% gravel driveway so a 705 isn't my flavor. I currently have a BTO21 on the rear and it was quite a positive change from the TW for my style of riding. Just like to get more than 7k miles out of it.
