Tire Preference

When I was riding my bike earlier this month I noticed less traction and I had less confidence in my tires than when I 1st got the bike.( 2000 miles ago) Its time for tires!!!
What do you have on your ride and why do you prefer them. I was looking at DR208's but still have my options open. I will probably replace both at the same time.

Share your experiences with tires and personal preferences.

don't go off reviews. and street riding doesn't compare to track riding. so it's not like you'v been able to test them.

I had the 208's on the Busa and liked them just fine, got good mileage out of them.............but I didn't ride to the walls either. They don't heat up as much or as fast as some of the others but they worked well wet or dry.
I've got Metz's on both the others.........no complaints so far. The RC has some old Metz 1H's on it (came stock on it)........the Duc has M-1's.
