Michelin Scorchers by a long shot. Got 20K+ on my first set. Replaced them because I was having the wheels chromed. Could have gotten a couple thousand more. On my second set now they are holding up as well.
Never had any handling problems.

I got 16k on front Michelin scorcher but only got 10k out of the rear. These are a hard tire and I didn't like their performance in the rain. I switched to metzler 880 and the grip is all around better than the michelins in the wet or the dry. Big difference in the rain. I have 7k on the metzlers and they are still like new. I also saved a good amount of money by switching to the metzlers.
I agree the Scorchers I currently have on the bike feel like harder tires then my previous Metzlers, and definitely harder than my previous Avons. That said, if memory serves correct, my Metzlers started with alot more original tread....

Running 200 cobra, I did not keep track of mileage but its around 12k ridding fairly hard on the rear. The thing I like is the feel is very similar to oem dunlop, great warmup but much better life. half way burned up second set and very happy. I do run these tires a little higher psi, 50 rear 55 front, but I had to do that with the dunlop to keep the front from cupping.
