I hope my stock tires wear out quickly, I want new rubber fast
I'm looking at the Road Attack 3 also... Or the Metzeler 01... Any opinions on those?

I don't think you'll go wrong with any of the big name sport touring tires out right now. They all score well in dry and wet testing and have decent tread life.
The Road Attack 3 has a 150 mile towing coverage if you read through the warranty, etc information on Continentals site, may have to register then when you buy but that's actually a pretty good deal if you get a bad puncture somewhere.
I've only run Metzeler Z8's in the past but they were a great tire so i'd expect the same from the 01.
Look at the Avon Spirit ST as well. It's not expensive and has a puncture warranty for the first half of the tread life, free tire if that happens. They warrantied it for 15k miles when it first came out which is nuts, never seen a ST tire last that long.
Motorrad has been doing a good tire test every year, heres the link to this years. TLDR is the Roadsmart 3 and Angel GT was best overall. PR5/Angel GT tied for best in the wet. Road Attack 3 longest tread life. This was on BMW R1200RS, last year they performed it on a Suzuki GSXS750 and the Continental Road Attack 3 won. Michelin was in the lower rankings overall both years, good in the wet but beat in other areas. All of them score pretty close so I don't think you can really go wrong.
If you have google chrome it has a translate function that will convert it to english or a bunch of other languages and works pretty good.
I've run a set of Angel GT and it was one of the best I've ever used. Wore better than the PR4 set because the front didn't scallop like the PR4.
Looks like Angel GT and Roadsmart 3 are this years winners. Right now the Roadsmart is a killer deal for $200 with a 75 dollar prepaid card rebate deal until end of August (in usa at least)
