If you're going to go cheap on your bike, tires isn't the place to do it.

Wow, namecalling for an honest reply, both in this thread and in a PM. I guess you don't want my help.

Have a nice day!

how do you ride? do you tear up the twisties or do you mainly ride on the super slab? Answers to those question will help better determine what tire is best for you.

n on avg 5k is bout all you will get on a set of tires. more if ya more controled less if not controlled.

First he wasn't being an ass, just stating a fact that some newer riders may not be aware of. You haven't been here long, so we do not know your abilities and knowledge. You asked advice, we are giving it.

Powers are great for twisties, not for commuting (ask most ppl on this site)
Pilot Roads are great for commuting, ok for twisties (ask playfulgod)
your buddy likes the road attacks, so you have that input.

Not a whole lot more that we can tell you without knowing your riding style and such.

Roads are good for twisties long as you keep them in contact with the pavement

My pilot roads are around 120ish for the front and 164 for the rear, thats at the suzuki shop here in florida. haven't checked online might have to do that and order tire soon. Pilot powers are great i know many friends that use them.
But i commute to work alot and i would burn up the tire to damn quick. Considering i drive to and from work a round trip of about 85 miles a day.
