If you ride 95% city/town I would suggest something along the lines of a BT-023. I know this guy that rides a 1000RR on them and he has liked them so far.

I read a ton of reviews and went with the Pilot Road 2 190/50, picked up the rear for $158.00 from Motorcycle Superstore online.

http://www.twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?t=31232

He's done a few tire reviews, managed to squeeze 14k out of his PR2's and with almost nothing but praise for these tires otherwise, sounds like a winner to me and i do a ton of commuting.

I put 5k mi on my BT016s so far (nearly 90% straight highway) and the rear is only now *starting* to develop a flat center. I will probably buy BT016s again for my next set

I never rode a BT16 but I did get a chance to ride a 003RS. What I liked about the Bridgestone better than the Michelin was that it was not as sensitive to air pressures. I had a hard time dialing in the 2CT, whereas the 003RS were easy to dial in and my rebound tearing was not an issue.

Got a BT-16 on front and Bt-21 on rear. i'm thinking of trying out a 16 or 23 on rear when this one is done. Really liking the 16 front. Can't compare with other ones you listed since I've never used those.
