I've been running Michelin Pilot Power 2CT's for a while. Costly, but the grip is insane.

Depends on what you're doing. If you're using it more for cutting corners, that's seems like a good choice. Out here I spend more time going straight and have settled on Pilot Road or Road Attacks, which are harder and last a lot longer.

metzler M5

I have had metzler m5 tires for the last 3 sets, the most I got out of them with a variety of riding was 13.500km, I highly recommend them, my current set has done 7000km and still going strong
