Raider Big rear tire recommendations?

I have put about 3,000 miles on my $240 rear tire on my raider. I used the metzler tires that are with the bike originally. I can tell though that this rear tire is fading fast. I do a lot of straight riding at speeds of around 70-80 mph, but I love to hit the twisties occasionally when I can. I've only seen maybe two brands that even make the factory size rear tire and not many on the front. Any other tires recommended for the Raider? note that I really don't wanna go with a significantly larger tire and definitely not smaller. Just want the same performance with more life.
