Smile What tires do you guys run?

I just picked up a 97 katana 600 and it is going to need both tires. I am curious what kind of tires you guys like and recommend. Thanks!

Michelin Pilot Roads...

The PR 2 lasted for ever... good tire.
The PR 3 was sticker, and much better handling on wet... but didn't last nearly as long.
About to put a set of PR 4s on mine next.

I'm running Pirelli Angel GTs, was torn between those or the PR4s but went with these because riding in the wet isn't a concern.

The 4 lasts longer than the 3, but not as long as the 2. The 3 does have awesome wet weather grip. On the 4s that I've run I never really had much rain. (Thanks Cali drought....)
