New bike on the horizon but can't decide what to do

are you listening to other people telling you what you should be riding? i know i did for the past three years, and now regret every single day i lost doing what i love most and thats a lightweight sportsbike, uncompromising ,uncomfortable , nah you are a long time dead, listen to your heart not other peoples ideas we are different and we all age differently.
good luck with your choice personally id get the gsxr750 and cock a snook to the doubters and spoilers.

New tyres Pirelli diablo rosso corsa or metzeler racetec rr k3

i had the pirellis on both my 04 blade and 07 model, far better feed back from the front end than the bridgestones that they both came with from new, transformed the whole bike, mileage was pretty shoite , but who cares when you know you are leaving masses of rubber on the road with the grip they provide, racetecs were good but i draw the line at 1,500 miles for each rear, and they go off really quickly.

I wouldn't get that one, the weight of the bike on your back dragging you backwards is a killer especially when fell walking.

So I'm told.

White lines

I decrease my speed overall in the wet. If there are white lines/arrows on entry or through corner, I tend not to apply too much brakes or throttle harshly to avoid a squeekey bum moment. In the dry, I go at normal corner entry speed reguardless of whether there's road markings, have never had issues with riding over them. Its gravel/chuckies/crap/bumps on the road you need to worry about.
