Michelin Pilot Road 2
I had the Pilot Road front & rear on my Ducati ST3 & got 9,000 miles on them - mostly highway. Since most of my miles are highway, I wanted a replacement tire that would be soft enough for fun weekend riding, but hard enough that it wouldn't quickly get a flat center from the highway miles. The Pilot Road 2 is a great choice with the dual compound construction. It sticks in the corners but it isn't showing the highway flat spot.
Dennis Kirk was great to work with and has attractive prices!

Bought a set of these for my 08 z1000 in May of 2012. Rear tire lasted 7500 miles. (I rode them til 8k, but i don't recommend that) the front tire failed inspection this May (2015) after 16,000! pretty awesome for any bike tire, but a sportbike tire, that's insane. plenty sticky. I'm trying the road 4s, but i highly recommend these!

Great Sport/Touring Tires
So far these tires have provided me the best overall mileage, while still having enough stick in the corners. They don't have as much sidewall as some, so it's pretty easy to get to the edge of the tires, so some care needs to be taken, they are NOT Sport Tires, but are a great compromise.
