Advice on sticky tires for dry twisty riding?

I was thinking Metzler Roadtech 01. Any other suggestions? I got 3k miles out of the stock tires. Getting a little more would be OK but performance first.

I really loved the M7RR on my Hyper. Definitely a sport tire.

Great tires, I,m using them 2000 miles so far , they are great. I went for 400 miles of many curves, really sharp ones and the tire was very sticky.

Talking about metzeler roadtech 01

Getting a set of Metzeler roadtec 01ís fitted next week. Theyíre not cheap but all reviews have been good. Iíve got a track day coming up the week after and Iím expecting more grip and feedback from them compared to the Scorpions.

I switched the stock tires to Metzeler Roadtec 01 and I was shocked by how much grip I had. As I was going through a very familiar twisty road with the Roadtec now installed, I was wondering if I was going way under the speed limit because of how controlled the bike was compared to the Scorpions (admittedly, they were quite worn), but I wasn't... the tires just stick to the pavement.

I have about 1500 miles on a Pirelli Diablo Rosso III Tires. I'm not an expert rider but in comparison to the stock tires they seem much more sticky. How do these compare with the other tires mentioned here?

I've ridden Pirelli Supercorsa, Rosso III and Angel GT. I've managed to push the front once with the Angels, but that was on a dirty, off camber up hill turn where I started trail braking before getting off the throttle, so.. oops. While the Rosso and Supercorsa inspire more confidence, the Angel GT hooks up very good and gets much better mileage. I got 3k out of the supercorsa, 4k our of the rear on a Rosso III and have 5500 on the Angels now, front looks basically new and the rear probably has another 1 - 2 k in it thought it suffered dearly in the Nevada heat on my July roadtrip and has more of a flat spot then I expected given my experience with my previous set (on the old bike, 7k and the rear is barely showing wear).

That's the other tire I'm thinking of. No trail riding. Just twisties in the mountains.

I hear the Diablo Rosso III is terrific. More opinions on that vs the Metzler 01?
