I had a set of Avon Storms on prior to my current set and was very happy and got 10K miles out of them. The new Storm 2 is supposed to be even better. However, I currently have a set of Continental Conti Motions on it. I really like them and others who rode my bike said the same. I can't comment on life yet but I really like the profile, dry grip, and wet grip. The "Traction Skin" hype, isn't hype. The break in time was essentially zero. Best of all is the price. They are very affordable. Much less than $200 a set. Right now American Motorcycle Tire has them for around $160 a set. I just saw that last night.
