New Tires for my Superhawk

I need new tires for my '98 Honda VTR1000...

most of my rides are on Sundays mornings, are 50 or so miles in length and consist of about 25% twisties and 75% highways...I'm not concerned that much about tire longevity...

what do you recommend and why?...

TIA

Mate, I've got Mich Pilot Road 2c's on my big girl and I just love 'em. Hard in the centre, soft on the edges. Can't rave about 'em enough.

I've totally lost my chicken strips on the rear, I feel so confident with them. The centre of the tyre, meanwhile, is still as curved as the day they went on.

I have Continental Road Attacks and very much like them. Same design style as Cookee's. The Road Attack II's are the latest version of mine.

I have to agree with Vash. Got 2CT's on both bikes, and they are awesome

Just go with the Pilots. You know you want to.
