Pirelli Diablo Strada's. Look 'em up online for excellent reviews. Bought some off of kneedraggers.com for under $300 for the set. Long lasting, sport touring tires. I have about 1/4inch strips on the sides and they are very grippy once warmed up. I've read reviews that say there good for 10,000...but thats probably on something besides a supersport. I expect to get between 6,500 and 7,000 out of them compared to 4,000 out of the stock qualifers I replaced.

michelin pilot road 2's. awesome tires, they have great grip and last forever. I have used these and diablo stradas and I def. like the michelins better.

Same here. Great for the twisties cause they have softer compound rubber on the outside and harder compound in the middle.

Excellent grip in the dry and particularly in the wet. I'm still yet to feel any loss of grip when riding the rain (a lot lately).

Cheers
