I know this must’ve been asked a few times but the twist for me is that I’m looking for a more sport touring tire rather than 70/30 or 90/10. This is for a 2018 GS low suspension. Here’s the orig. tires that came with the bike. Lasted 6k miles on mostly touring and canyon rides.

Try the Dunlop Mission, I'm really liking them after 1000 + miles

Love my Shinkos 705. Great mileage value. El cheapo price tag. BOGO free compared to Michelins.

You might be better asking the R1200RT crowd for sport touring tire advice. Never a lack of posts and reviews on tires unless it is a new model.

Biggest decision is whether you think you'll ever hit gravel or hardpack...then a 90/10 may be a better choice than a sport touring tire.

Michelin Anakee 3 would seem to fit your pistol. They have a fairly smooth overall curve to them but with a little bit of cross gap for the infrequent dirt road.

Those were the oem tires that came with the bike. Was quite grippy on the street. Ended up with the Bridgestone battlax T31s. Let's see how long they last. Thanks for the recommendations.

If you can get some Pirelli Angel GT's to fit you won't be disappointed.
