sure you saw a picture of me running road attacks. I could show pictures of that bike wearing just about every sport touring tire except maybe the pilot road3 (have yet to try them, although the PR2s were awesome) My last two sets have been Continental Conti Motions. I really like the way they feel, very predictable, and I'm getting a bit over 6000 on the rears, which is fine for the cash outlay. I have used the Angels, Avon Storms, Pilot Roads, Road Attacks, Z6's and some crappy Bridgestones (dont remember the model but they sucked) For now I think the Conti Motion is the best value out there. I mount my own tires and use dyna beads.
