Ask four folk here that and you'll get five or six answers

I have Bridgestone BT-023 fore and aft for no other reason than that's what was fitted when I acquired the motorcycle. They've be fine wet, dry, winter, summer, autumn, and spring. Good range too, averaging 10,000 miles before the treads are down to 2 mm.

Just fitted Michelin 5ís fron5 and back. Expecting big things! Everyone I speak to says these are the best on the market right now. ( waiting for a flurry of Bridgestone users to fire back on this one).  :152:

PR4's on mine.. had them on last two bikes and never faulted them in the wet or dry.

Must agree with Marksabin. Presently got  the latest 5's, but for some unfathomed reasons I prefer the old the P4's, just seemed more comfortable , better grip (front and rear) and better lean. Never had a problem with last 2 sets of PR4's even although the front tyres were criticised by some for scalloping.

Any tyre from a 'recognised' tyre manufacturer will hold the road better than I can ride in the dry, but I look for the best tyre for wet riding and have stuck with PR3/4s now R5s. In the wet the safety margin if I get it wrong is less and I MIGHT not get round that bend on a less grippy tyre. But any tyre you use, if you are happy with it, is better than a tyre you don't feel secure with. (no names, no pack drill!)
Never ride faster than your Angel can fly.

Firm but fair Ken, if your tyre choice gives you confidence in the bends, wet and dry, you can't ask for more.
