For my two-penn'orth I'm going to stick with Pirellis (Dragon/Evo/Corsa/SuperCorsa) on all my dukes.
I've tried 207s on a 916 and found it felt vague and I had Pilot Sports on my 851 when I lost the rear without warning on Paddock Hill.
Yes, the Pirellis square off quite quickly, but if I wanted to get touring mileage I wouldn't buy a 888!!!
PS if anyone wants to donate any squared off tyres I still have 900 miles of running-in to do
PPS Heated grips would be good too - its freezing out there!
