The last two sets i have bought for my 1000RR are the Dunlop Roadsmart. Its more of a sport touring tire, not the best for dragging your knees, but I don't do that. I do get pretty aggressive though, and I used to ride all the time in the rain, the first set I had got just about 12K on them. I have a set of the Pilots, and I can ride a little more aggressive there, but by no means do I drag knees or anything, but I do like taking on ramps at almost 3 times what it says to do. I haven't had a tire last as long as the roadsmarts, and I am not saying that are better than the others, I just know that in the rain and moist dewy mornings, that handle and stick to the roads very well.
