As I posted earlier my back tire blew on my GTS 300. It was a Pirelli GTS 24 tire.

Now the time has come to replace it.

What do you suggest??

I was starting to have a hard time finding the GTS 24. Motorcycle Superstore stocks it, but I was able to get a comparable Pirelli Diablo from them much quicker. The GTS was a great tire for me though, only switched to Diablo's so I could get them quicker.

What kind of riding do you do most?

I like the 140 Heidenau K61's I have on the rear of both of our 250's. 120 K-61's on both fronts.

I really don't like the Heidenaus at all. I spent three days riding a GTS with them fitted a month ago (did Skyline, Carmel Valley and Mount Hamilton). It really makes the GTS feel tippy (that's the best description I can give) and nervous. It was also a 140 so a 130 could potentially feel even worse. If I were you I'd go with the Michelin Power Pures as they seem to be well liked.
