Any ideas on tires?

I'm going to need to replace the rear skin on my 03 T100. The previous owner put a Battax on when he replaced the front (stock tire was the same). Any recs on a good (not cheap) rear doughnut? I'm not a knee scraper anymore ( I don't heal quickly at 57) just like leaning it over and being comfortable. Want it to ride smooth, too.

I run a Metzler Lazertec up front and a Metzler Marathon ME - 88. The front sticks like glue and once the rear end warms up, it sticks real nice to.

BTW I'm not a knee dragger either. Your right we don't heal like we did at 20 y/o.

Ride safe,

Quentin

Not to be mean, but I would do a search in the upper right corner of the forum navi. It's be discussed ad nauseum.

Short list:
-Michelin Pilot Activ
-Pirelli Sport Demon
-Avon Roadriders

I see what you mean. Lots of opinions, some a little dated. The front battlax is ok. Only has about 3K on it.Think I should change them out as a pair and sell the used front on ebay? I'll look at the superstore and compare.
