Junk the sports tyre on the rear and go for a sports touring tyre. They work better on the road and offer double the milage. You wont lose any grip. In fact, they heat up better and work better on the road.

Michelin Pilot Road2 for the rear and a Power2CT on the front will do all you need it to do. And will return you far greater milage without sacrificing grip.
