First time Buell owner...love the bike. I'm looking to replace my tires, riding on street all the time, back and f worth to work. Tire recommendation s will be much appreciated.

I had good luck with Pirelli Diablo's. I didn't abuse the tires and very gentle with them. Got 10k miles out of a set doing a commute of 45 miles one way.

Michelin Pilot Road 2 or Pilot Road 3's (PR2 / PR3) were made for what you want to do.
They won't wear to nothing in 4000 miles, but they will also hold well all the way to peg dragging lean angles.

I agree with Reepi, i have pilot 2on the front with about 12000 (need to replace soon) and pilot 3 on the rear, with about 7000 on it going strong. unfortunatly my commute is mostly freeway, but the harder compound through the center on the rear is holding up well. I get to scrub some rubber off the edges on the weekends.
