Best sports tyre for warm climate??

It's time to again replenish the sticky stuff and again it's a hard decision as to the best performing tyre for my climate and riding conditionsI'm not exactly a tyre expert and the local bike shop keeps pushing the tyre on their max margin. Typically my choice is Michelin pilot power as they are predictable at traction and edge, but the life isn't that long and when new are a bit squirmy. The bike shop put on Dunlop qualifiers on my 675 but a few two wheel drift knee saves later and those are in the sin bin...

Buell XB12XT tyres please?

I have a Buell XB12XT and I'm looking for a recommendation on tyres.

Currently have Pirelli strada (came fitted) but feel I'm at there limit, I like fast road riding, wont be doing any track days but will be on the odd  green lane, gravel track when I take the wee lad away camping. Was considering the new ...

Changing OE tyre Dunlop D221

Just ordered the new Bridgestone BT-T30 which replaces the BT-023. Its a real mine field looking for tyres, but I decided that I anit no GP racer so these should do the trick. The Dunlops have done 6000 with plenty left but were always rubbish when damp or raining.

Bigger Tyre

My Honda CB1300 runs a standard rear tyre of 180/55 I would like to replace that with a 190 section, would that size tyre upset the handling in any way?

Continental Conti Motion

In another thread I've just said how much I like bt-023s, but for entirely budget reasons I'm considering putting a set of these on. I've managed 9k out of the bt-023s so far and a set of conti's is about half the price, so if I get 5-6k from the conti's I'd be happy....unless they're awful..Anyone got any opinions either way?
