sport touring tires??

Hello.

I'm using Pirelli Diablo, solo riding, always twisty roads, just weekends, I read Honda recommends 36 PSI front , and 42 PSI, rear , ( mine is 34 front, 36 rear)

I want tire duration and good grip, do not use my bike for tracks, and I`m thinking to use sport touring tires such as Michelin Pilot Road 2,
has anyone used this kind of tire on RC 51 ??

Saludos desde México.

Enrique

There's been a couple lenghty threads about tire's. I just plugged *tires* in the search bar and came up with some of these:

No, believe it or not! There have been other tire threads. And we dont mean the ones hanging out of your tires

I run Avon Storm 2's on my 04. Great grip and mileage for a sport touring tire.
