I have the 491 Elite II, front & rear (raised white letter)

I really like them. The seem to be wearing extremely well.
I don't remember what I had before these, but I do know they didn't last as long as the 491's..

That's almost what they seem like.
One guy I ride with most (on street & dirt) has commented on how long I've had them on, since he's changed his tires atleast twice in the same amount of time. Granted his is a different bike (Nighthawk 750) but our riding styles are very similar.
I believe I had Bridgestone's on before, and like I said, they didn't last nearly as long.
