Battlax BT023

At the risk of starting up another popcornfest like oil and pipes and such, I'm in the market for soem tires. I've just about runn off the BT016's that I have on the bikem but for most of the roads i'm on, Im thinking a bit more sport touring tire is in order. My area suffers from what I can the straight lane syndrome so highway mileage is becoming more of a requirement than my occasional foray into the curvier roads often the better part of a day away. Anybody tried the BT02's? I'm also looking (but not sold) at the Pilot Power 2CT.

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

BT023 are as good as your going to get. I ride the BT016PRO on the RC51s, and the BT023 two-up on the S-hawk.. Excellent grip-raim or shine. Mileage -got 5,400 miles/ with No chicken strip...
My brothers and father ride the Power Pilot 2CT on their S-hawks. And get good mileage, and ride- "Wide Open" most of the time..
Don't think you would go wrong -with either tire...
Nope- haven't riden the BT02...

Thanks chaos, one of my suppliers said much the same, but I'd rather hear it from a rider's point of view than a salesman.
