Lads & Lassies, what are the best tyres for the CBF1000? I would like a blend of good general grip with a longish life, as I do around 8-10k miles a year, as a recreational motorcyclist. Cheers.

I'm using T30s and the grip is excellent. Haven't had them long enough to comment on wear.
Mick, I've got around 3k on my tyres at the moment. Tread pattern still looks as good a new, but the rear tyre is definitely starting to get visibly squared off now. Still, on my previous Bridgestones, I was lucky to get 4k before running them down to the canvas, so I can't really complain.
You must ride very hard Mark, like a cowboy racing his horse to the nearest Wells Fargo station whilst being pursued by Indians:-)) However, not sure how long a bike tyre should last.
All depends on the bike and the tyre, but I usually work on between 3-5k for the rear and double that for the front.
Cheers Mark, very helpful!
If it ain't wearing it ain't working, long life and good grip are unlikely bedfellows.
I put a pair of pr3s on last September, replacing the pilot roads that were on when I bought it in May, the difference was like night and day, I ride in all weathers and haven't had a single slide on the pr3s ( I had lots on the pilot roads) done around 8000 miles on em now and the rear is squaring off a bit but they are still fab
Pirelli angel gt. The best tire I ever had on this bike. Easy to handle, very good grip even in wet conditions. I have got around 4000 km since february on the tires right now. They almost look like new. By the way, including 6 turns on Nürburgring...☺
Thanks, some great advice & good prices from that website Bryan. How much should I pay for fitting BTW?
I pay £10 per tyre but I take them off, I nearly had a thrombie when I got a price for ride in ride out!!!
