Long Life Concours 14 Tire!

Guys- I need a solid recommendation for a long-life tire. I just had a conti motion on and felt like it wore out pretty fast. I'm looking for something that will last awhile- I don't need sticky tires: I just need one that will clock some miles. Any ideas?

So- Based on my research and pricing info- I decided to try a tire that I used to have on my ZX11 that I really liked, had long life and good treadwear- the Shinko 009 Raven. I just got it on and it feels as good as any other new tire I have had on there. I will have to put miles on it and see how it does in the next few months. If this winds up not lasting a long time, I will try the Michelin Pilot Road 3 next.

Shinko Raven tires are simply the best tire for the money period.
