Let me be the first to say Michelin Pilot Powers.
Very nice grip, even in the wet.
I've had mine for almost 5000 miles now and the front looks great. The rear is somewhat worn in the middle.

Hmmmmm Avon Viper super sports......... Lurvely grip, plenty confidence in them. the wear rate is ok, I get about 1800 - 2000 out of a back tyre but thats cause I live in the country side with plenty of twisties for me to play on, and I aint exactly shy on the corners..... in saying that, I still think the mileage I get is bloody good for wha I do............

Avon 45/46ST's here. I love them, but then my riding is mostly commuting.

Mich. Powers very good road tyres.....

With the first set I did close to 4000 km over 2500 miles . Front tyre last more than the rear , but I like to change the entire set...They long just a bit more than my old BT010 and the Michelin are far better than the bridgestone...

i have the qualifier on my rear right now. mostly commute/cross country and ive gotten about 3500 out of it and still got a bit left. my front right now is a M3 sportec and ive gotten over 5500 miles on that and still good for a bit too. the dunlop is good on grip for the most part. i think im going to try the power pilots next.

I would say that the advise offered on here is quite irrelevant for you, each of us around the globe ride in different climates, a Diablo Corsa may be awesome over here but overheat in Oz.
I would localise your question to the Aussie forum:yes

Pilot powers braugh especially if most of the riding you are doing in on the street. I've had many Dunlops in the past but now I am sold on the Pilot Powers. Amazing life and sticky too.

I also do some spirited riding through the countryside and they hold up well. I've also been caught in the rain twice and the rear felt very solid.

I ran a set of Diablo Corsa's on the TLS before running the Supercorsa's. They were a brilliant tyre. (Not sure of mileage as I pulled them prematurely for a track day, but I did a track day on them with no problems).

So the Diablo Corsa's work OK in AU :thumbup (do they exist anymore? :dunno)

I ran Dunlop 208's for about 6000kms.Very happy with them but apparently you can't get them anymore.I spoke to my dealer and he reckoned Qualifiers replaced 208's so thats what I've got on now.
They're brand new so I don't really know what they're like yet.They do feel a lot softer than the 208's,so I'm not expecting great life out of them.I've got a track day coming up in a couple of weeks and will let you know how they go after that.
