Mr Tyreman - little Dunlops?

I am really happy with the Dunlop 205's that I have on my monster 750.
Good wear, used on the road only - for m/ways & x-country etc.
(were rubbish though towards the end - should have changed earlier methinks)

Have just heard that they have stopped doing them though.
What is the next best tyre you would recco for my bike? - or can I still get the 205's somewhere?
Not urgent request - but will need replacement before winter (do bout 4000 miles every 6months approx)

Cheers,
C

Bridgestone Battlax

BT020, excellent all round tyres, grippy enough, especially in the wet and excellent longevity. If you want to get a bit sticky then the BT010 up front or even the BT012, but they get pricier.

Ta guys for the help ( & offer of tea - does that mean cakes too?)
Having changed the last rear at end May, at a cost of 97 for the D205 (Guildford tyres)- which I am very happy with, I think that 175 sounds lots - so will have to save hard - as my 12000 service will be prob due at the same time!

If you like your current Dunlops why not try D207RR's ?, they are a very good tyre, running them on a couple of bikes now, give good grip and seem to be wearing very well. Some dealers will do them fitted for around 160 inc VAT on production of a valid DSC membership card.
