Ok - I need tire #2 for my 2008 k1200gt the first one I replaced at the BMW MOA rally in gillette this summer. Unfortunatly I only got to ride 20,000 miles since I purchased the bike end of april 2008 I need a new rear tire and would like to know what you've found to be good. I ride hard, long days usually. I'd like to get a tire ordered soon but I don't know what would be best for my GT. I've run Avons and Bridgestones on my RT

Tires are really subjective. How hard do you ride? In what conditions? Do you give priority to handling, grip, or mileage? All those things make a difference for you on your bike.

There is some good discussion in this tire thread at K-Bikes.com.

Or if you really want to confuse yourself, you can peruse the KGT Tires forum over at I-BMW.com. :)

Dunlop Roadsmart. They stick in the wet, wear well are quiet and I'm not really a Dunny guy. I have 5K on them now and estimate they will do 8-9

I only tried them because they were $20 cheaper than Mich but will buy another set. Hope that helps.

+1 on the RoadSmart. Check BikeBandit.com. They give a 6% discount for AMA members. swmototire is another good source.
