Avon Storm.... a great all-around tire that lasts and works well both wet and dry.

Look at Avon Storm ST or Metzler Roadtec Z6. I've run both on the 600R, consistently get over 10K out of a pair, and have no complaints on handling when things get spirited. On my 3rd pair of Storms, and I ran through 2 pairs of Metzlers before that. Really like the wet road handling from both, a must IMO for commuting.

I admit I didn't read through the thread, but on my first GSXR 750 I ended up with metzeler z6's and they sorta sucked because of slow warm up and very slick when cold. never had confidence to lean.

I stuck with bridgestone battlax 014's for a while but after the third one in ten thousand I decided to try pirelli diablo strada tires. I was a bit apprehensive that they would be too sport touring for my tastes...

after 1500 miles or so (including a 500 mile trip on the highway) I can say that I can still drag knee on them, I have a lot of confidence, they warm up reasonably quickly considering the type of tire, and I had virtually no where on the 500 mile high way ride. a 500 mile highway ride on the battlax 014r's would have seen noticeable wear and a chewed up center.

I sold the bike before I got to experience their full wear but I'd defintely buy them again. they were awesome tires. looked like they were going to last a real long time and they stuck as good as you'll ever need tires on the street to stick.
