Michelin Pilot Power 2Ct's.... This tires rips the canyons brakes perfect in the rain and warms up fast. Should see close to 12,000 miles out of them.

Just put the new bridge tone s20s on my bike. They have sown little wear and handled a track day very well. I was running fast intermediate times with them. Also, 220 delivered to my door was nice too. I have been pleased so far.

I love Conti RA2's 10,000km's out of the last rear tyre, 13,000 and still counting out of the front. They heat up nicely and stick like shit to a blanket.

Same here!! I really like the new S20s... I just did a 1.000km trip on all kinds of weather and they handled beautifully... Great improvement over the supercorsas, specially in wet conditions.
Really liking these tires for street use... Will have to see how long they last... Going on 3.500 and plenty of thread left.

I am currently running Bridgestone S20s, and they are the most confidence-inspiring wet traction tire I've ever ridden on. That includes Pilot Road 2s but not 3s. I went with the S20s because I was so impressed with the feel and longevity of the BT-016s that came on my Street Triple. I have always run Michelins before that, a couple sets each of Pilot Road, Pilot Road 2, Pilot Power, and Pilot Power 2ct. In my honest, humble, and very much subjective opinion, the Bridgestones have so far been superior to their Michelin counterparts. They are all great tires, I just didn't know what I was missing until I got 'stuck' with some Bridgestones for the first time. The BT-016 honestly felt as good as the Pilot Power 2ct on track, although I haven't gotten the S20s out yet I expect them to outperform anything I've tried yet. I can't speak for their longevity yet, but in terms of all-around street performance they are almost too good to be true.

Seriously another tire thread? Did you try searching for a similar thread before you posted?

Dunlop Q2's are *the* tire... best I've tried!

However, they do have a downside .... they wear out very fast.

3-5K and they are gone.
