I went with the Roadsmart 2s. They should be here in a week or so. One personal review I read stated a full 13 thousand miles out of one set(!). I'm down to the wear bars on the front and the Dunlop Qualifier at the rear is looking pretty sorry for itself. Both are squared off pretty bad though the front is the one that came with the bike so I can't complain. I'll write up a review of the Roadsmarts after I get them installed and scrubbed in.

tonight's Nomad 2012 trip thread should be a hoot if my typing is decipherable
LMAO! I'm glad you all enjoyed the spirits. As for the tires they have transformed the bike. Immediately noticable was the ease of direction change and the linear quality of the ride. The carcass is very stiff on these Roadsmart 2 tires which made them a chore to shoehorn onto the rims but if my initial ride home is any indication I'm in for miles of riding goodness. After they are properly scrubbed-in and I can test the soft outter edges I will report back. For now, all I can say is Thank You Mike!

Made the ice cream run to Girdwood with my Wife, Brando and my buddy Scott. Great weather, crap traffic. Still a nice ride, though.
