Default What motorcycle tire is great for a sport bike, but will last 7 or 8k miles?

I have a buell xb12r so its got tons of torque and the front end does come up quite often. But i do not do the twisties and bends. so side grip is not really a problem. What tire is better a Pirelli Diablo Strada, Metzeler roadtech z6 or bridgestone battlax. I want a sport touring tire because i drive this bike every where, probably 700miles a month!size is 180/55 zr17 ------

I use Bridgestone Battlax BT-45 Sport Touring Front Tire, Turn in is quick and they are available in good prices.

in the dunlop stable.

the Q2 is a sticky tire. but not a long distance up right tire.
great tire for the track days..

for better long miles and still sticky in the canyons try the roadsmart II.
multi type compound so works to keep the chicken strips off the tire.
great 50-50 deal. yes on my bike now.
FZ1 love the corners and i need to commute some days as well as go places.

for just long flat miles go to a cruzer tire.

no i do not work for them just like the brand...for now.
