I don't have any experience with street tires in a couple years. I love the GP208's though

I had Pilot Sports on my 600 until last week -- I have just scrubbed in my new Pilot Powers since then i've been telling every man and his dog how good they are.
They feel really grippy and in the wet feel really really good (def better then the 207/208's) I found myself in some reasonable lean through a corner the other day in rain and was like "I can't believe these tyres gave me the confidence to just lay this thing down without thinking" -- normally I'm the opposite in the wet, keep the bike more upright/sport a paranoid look etc.
My bike is my only transport and therefore I use that thing in all weather conditions.
Now my standard disclaimer: Tyre choice seems pretty individual, ask someone else and they'll probably reccomend Avons or Metzlers or whatever.
