I would say that it depends heavily on what you ride and how you ride.
For instance, Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited set me up with some michelin pilot powers, he said that they would work best with my bike and my riding.

Yeah talk to Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited. He won't try to sell you something that you don't need, plus he'll cut you a good deal too.

Preference and type of riding are the most important. I was on tombstones at 1st, but switched to pilot powers and i love em.
