I don't flog mine like some here, decent grip and LONG milage are important.

Thoughts and experiences ?

thanks ..

Michelin Pilot Road. I used them since the 2's came out and will put them on my EBR when it's time.

+1 on the Pilot Powers ( I run them...on the street))...I do hear good things about the new Dunlops (Q3)...if you do track days go with the Dunlops...they seem to be "softer" and give more confidence on the track...run my Pilots at 38psi(R), 34psi(F)...might check out some Revzilla Youtube reviews before you buy...

Q3s are tremendous tires. They suit my riding habits and style very well. Mileage will probably not be what you are looking for however they are multi compound on the rear.

The Michelins are great tires albeit expensive.

Bridgestone T31 tires are really nice, good handling, good grip AND they last a long time, much longer than Bridgestone tires of old AND they are about the cheapest top shelf tire you can find AND bridgestonerewards.com often has $60. rebates per pair (the current promotion just ended on 4/30 :-() AND americanmototire.com has the best prices I've been able to find anywhere on all brands.
