Tires V Star 650 Classic

What would be considered a decent price and brand of tire for a vstar 650 classic. I am just looking for the rear tire. I really dont need anything fancy just standard or factory. I have never bought a tire for a bike so I am not sure what the best choice would be.

Do you like your original tire brand? I will probably go with my same original tires when that time comes unless I read some good reviews or forum responses. Some brands I would consider looking into are Pirelli, Dunlop, Bridgestone, and Michelin.

Edit: Did some looking around and may seriously consider the Michelin Pilot Road 2 Tires. I prefer Michelins for my car and truck, so I may go with these for tread wear and grip.

I put some Kenda Kruisers on my last bike and loved them.

Thanks for the input, I will be looking into these. I need a new tire installed by spring.
