+1 on the Avons. I've run 120/21 and 200/17 Avon Cobra combo on my 2011 since the bike had 1,700 miles on it and I can't find any fault with them. If I were to nit-pik, I'd say the soft compound of the Avons gives you a bit less mileage life, but not so much that I care. It's that same softer compound that gives them the handling edge in feeling more like a sport bike/sport touring bike. Just one guy's experience.
