Bridgestone BattleWings are a great value, around $215 for a set online at Chapperal. I don't notice them being better or worse than the stock TW or Conti Trail Attacks as far as handing or feel, but they're lasting longer than the TW's for me. I had Michelin PR3's on another bike which greatly improved feel and handling on that bike. I imagine the new PR4's will be an upgrade for street riding if you want to shell out about another $100 for a set over the BW's.
