    Michelin Pilot Power 3's, and better than the original Pirelli's.  I'm thinking Avon's next, but that is a ways off.  The Michelins are holding up well for my somewhat sedate riding style.

    I've got Avons fitted at the moment and I'm very pleased with the tyres.    I had most makes of tyre on various bikes over the years, but to be honest, I don't really see / feel much difference between them.  I guess I don't push the bike hard enough so tyres all feel about the same to me.  Just so long as they last pretty well,  keep me upright and don't cost too much I'm happy.

    I think you hit the nail on the head in that any new tyre will feel great coming after knackered squared off tyres.  I used to swear by Dunlop RoadSmart, but as the new bike came with Pirelli Angel ST I ran them for about 7,500 miles and changed to Michellin PR4 GT's both of which are great. 

    My thoughts on Tyres now are that if a main brand makes a tyre suitable for a certain bike we will never use them near their potential whilst riding on the road.

    I would hazard a guess that most Sport Touring tires these days perform better than most of us can ride... or willing to push on public roads anyway.  I've had T30 (both GT and non-GT) on several bikes and they do just fine compared to other ST tires I've had.  Personally, I see no point in paying for much more expensive ones... unless they are on clearance sale.

    BTW, for the US riders, Bridgestone has a $50 rebate on the latest T30 EVO right now through 3/31.  They usually have these rebates every Spring.  Overall cost for a set is less than US$200.  I always end up swapping tires early, as even the bestest gummiest tire in the last 1/3 of their lifespan (invariably squared off, cupped, and heat cycle hardened by then) are no match for fresh new rubber.
    Converto, ergo sum.       '15 300RR, '15 250XCF-W, '14 K1600GT, '12 VFR1200, '05 GSXR600 (track).
