I have just purchased a 2009 600 Hornet and I will very shortly need some new tyres. I am 71 years of age and only do around 2000 dry miles (if possible) a year. I have got past putting my knee down although I do like to ''lean'' So I would like the best tyres to get the most miles out of, What do you suggest please.:wacko:

I have had very good experience with BT023's. They give good grip and last very well.  Pilot Road 3's are also very well thought of by a lot of people.

I would second what marcusmarsh said, to a word.

I got on well with bt021's too, but they can't match the bt023 for mileage, based on my own experience with both.

For me, on the road, bt016's gave a heavy steering feel but stacks of cornering confidence in warm conditions. However they didn't long at all (less than 2k miles) and scrubbed out the front tyre just as quickly as the rear.

Friends who use pilot road 3s are also very happy and in mileage terms maybe they even exceed the bt023.

Consider Continental Road Attacks. They are very well proved and work well on my R1200GS
