With all due respect, though, that's like saying cherrios is hte best cereal, you've eaten it all your life, but never tried anything different. Just because it kept you fed doesn't mean it's hte best. It is, however, a good indication that there's no underlying surprises for people to be worried about.
Before I put on my metzlers I had dunlops on my bike, and they performed quite well, but didn't seem as sticky as the metzlers. I had about 6k on them and they were looking like slicks at that point, there was no tread left.
I have 39k miles on my bike and have gone through 6-7 sets of tires. Factory was dunlop, then a few set of avon's because that's what the dealer had. I didn't like the wear of them so i switched back to dunlops until now, even though the dunlops had good life they had poor stickyness. Great for tons of highway cruising, not so great for the twisties.
