    Then I'd say get the cheapest tires you can find that fit your bike. The 208s that you currently have probably fit that bill pretty well...

    yea..the 208s are fine for your use..i use them in the twisties and still are pretty decent. i bought a pair of M1s but have yet to use them. Ihear they are really good in terms of grip, but low on mileage.

    If you want a high mileage tire, go with those sport touring types

    Maybe try a duel compound tyre? Sorry, don't know the names of many bigger sized tyres.

    i had dunlop 207 and they gripped well and lasted 5k+ miles.
    i'm currently riding on dunlop d220 and i don't like 'em that much. they don't have that confidence inspiring grip when taking turns. i figured i use my bike for 90% commuting, 10% for entertainment so i went with sport touring tires to get more mileage out of them. i kinda regret it now though, i'd rather have that extra grip and get a couple thousand miles less out of the tires. the tires i REALLY wanted to try out were the continental attacks. i've read nothing but great reviews about them. they are soft, warm up time is fairly quick and over in europe, they actually consider it more of a sport tire than sport touring.
    my next set of tires will be d208zr or might try out the continental attacks.
