Default Recommend me some Tires plese

My bike has recently became my only means of transportation. I am going to try holding off buying a new car till after the holidays and I get some tax money back. But to last that long I will need a new front tire. I have Bridgestone's battlax b016s on there now.

Does anyone have any recommended tires for the winter season in the 757? Stick with the Battlax?

I have battlax tires on my 650, no complaints. I'm not a real aggresive rider though. Rode em in 30 degree weather felt alright, had them up over 100mph, felt solid.

Are you tight on money? I don't recommending mix/matching tires.

If you are going to commute on the bike, I'd suggest Michelin Pilot Road 2 or 3. They are about $300 a set, but you can pull 10-12k miles out of a set.

You can get a set of BT16 for $200, but they'd last you half that, at best.

If you are tight on money, the only road you can go is to do a direct replacement (getting a replacement BT16).

Yea, I've liked these tires but I've never had anything else. When did you get a 650?

10-12k you say? That would be sweet, thanks!
