As far as grip levels are concerned, if you are riding even close to legal limits, then the sport touring tires will work fine.
Bridgestone revamped the BT020 this year and it is supposed to be awesome. The Z6's are supposed to be very good as well. I've heard good things about Pilot roads too. I guess get what fits in your price range.
BTW I ran the Mi's on my RC51 and smoked them in like 2K miles (cord showing). Granted I was riding "spirited" most the time, but still...
The BT014 stuck great and gave me better mileage under the same conditions.
Also check your air pressure frequently, the wrong pressures will kill tires quick. On a 600 I'd supect out of tune suspension and air pressure issues to be the culprit for your tire wearing so fast. Only a guess though.

I do check pressure on a reg. and Motorcycles Unlimited did me suspension, granted patrick wasn't there.????

Sounds like he would be better served with a sport touring tire. . .
I understand the consequences of my actions prior to engaging in those actions. . .there are certain situations in life where the risk is totally worth the reward.
