For the everyday ride I'll take mags. Durable, lo maintenance, easy to clean, less hassle mounting tires. Spokes for the classics.

Mags - tubeless tyres FTW. Especially for roadside puncture repairs in the middle of nowhere. This was last week on tour through the Pilbarra, about an hour out of Pannawonica. 4 good punctures on the Triumph (my Sporty just hiding behind it), repaired, bikes packed and back on the road in 30 minutes.
