I would replace the front tire as well if they are both due. In my experience a worn tire combined with a new one can cause instability when riding the twisties. Also when replacing tires make sure they replace the wheel bearings as well. It's a cheap insurance to avoid the dreaded wheel lock-up...
The Dunlop American Elite is a well handling touring tire. But I have used Metzeler ME888 Marathin Ultra on my SERG. I had them on my Bimmers and they really perform well! The Metzler ME 888tire is a high mileage, high performance tire specifically designed for touring bikes. The ME 888 is a steel radial belt tire constructed with a single ply of steel cords wrapped around a radial tire carcass. This unique design feature gives the Metzler tire exceptional high speed stability. By using the steel belt design in the ME 888 touring bike tire, Metzler gives riders a more durable tire that distributes heat more uniformly. The redesigned tread patterns on the Metzler ME 888 provide better water drainage and increase performance in wet weather riding.
