I'm surprised "The stock Dunlops are crap!" took so long to show up. That's what I though it was all along. I didn't care for them and replaced them at 5500 miles with ME880s. The bike rides and handles much better now. Also popular are the Pirelli Night Dragons and MT66s and the Avon Venoms. There are other options, too, but those seem to get the most traction (see what I did there?) from riders here.
