or bridgestone battleax bt012 ss

little pricey but a great tire.

I hate dunlop with a passion i have had bad experiance's with them and dont like them at all. I have pilot powers on my bike right now and i love them with a passion. Awsome grip super fast warm up time just all around the best tires ever in my opinion and pretty cheap.

Dunlops street tires arent that good. Go with the Pilot Powers-they have a shorter life compared to other street tires but the grip is great.
