    Most will probably say the Power One Commercial tire. I personally have tried both the Power One and the Shinko Hookup on my 08 GSXR 1000 and I would go with the Shinko Hookup all day long and at half the price. Money aside I would still go with the Hookup.

    freaking hook up was never designed for cornering...it is a Drag Radial... it was and is intended for drag racing...

    Yes I'm very aware of this. I use hookups. I was just letting him know that they do not corner. Maybe they should work on creating a SARCASM font.

    A power one. Shinko stealth may also be a decent option depending on how much street riding you do. If you don't go all moto gp on the freeway, a hook up is fine. I ran one on my 65" 1k and never had any problems street riding freeway.
