I know the G550 is an old tire so there are tires that stick as well and last longer while doing it, but is there a tire that will do that without upsetting the handling balance?

I was planning on just going with another GS550, but figured I'd ask first. Once the front is worn I'll go to something else, but this tire is fine at the moment, being better than most tires I've owned, and we will be spending the next 6k learning the bike anyway. No need to upgrade equipment until the need becomes apparent, I always say...

Michellin Pilot Activ tires come in a 130/70/17 and 110/70/17 size that you need. otherwise, BT45 Battleax tires from Bridgestone are excellant tires. I have a set on mine right now, and I love how they hold the road.
