Earlier this year, I saw sense and finally got rid of those awful Kenda tyres and replaced them with Pirelli Nighthawks. I went on a 3000 km trip (all in the dry) and they were perfect. The bike went into the shed for 3 months over winter but came out for the 'Blessing of the Bikes' at Phillip Island and then a week later back to the Island for the MotoGP. Something has happened to the rear. It felt like I was riding on jelly. And when it rained, there was absolutely no traction and the rear kept spinning up. The rear has plenty of tread but is downright dangerous... I have gone back to the dealer to ask about this, and they don't want to know me. So my question to forum is... what rear tyre is the best option for the Scout (mine is 2015), that will grip in the wet and will grip in the dry? Forget the Pirelli's, I would never have another one on the bike ever again.
