I have a CBR1000F which currently has the Metzler Z4's. My previous set was Pirelli MTR23's and I agree that the Metzlers have a more rounded profile which affects handling. They feel very secure and seem to wear well but handling is appreciably slowed, which is not a good thing on a big heavy bike like the 1000F.

Not to knock my CBR; it's been a long term love affair.

If I was buying tires today I'd try Michelin's Pilot Road. Pretty soft compound, good for generally cool weather as we have here in Seattle most of the time. Check out Bike magazine's review of the Michelin Pilot series (Road, Supersport, Race compounds) in this month's issue.
