Black Friday - Tire Deals?

Been searching the web for some tire deals. Looking for a sport touring tire like a Z6 or a BT021, but wouldn't mind scooping up a set of sport tires at a blow out price. Anyone know of anything?

Thanks in advance...

best deal I found today was Motorcycle Superstore - Motorcycle Helmets and Motorcycle Accessories

Pirelli Diablo Stradas

$233.75 INCLUDING SHIPPING to my door. That is cheaper than the best Conti Road Attack price ($216+$20 shipping) out there which I was also considering. The Strada is on par with the Z6 and probably much better than the B-Stone. I hate the stock BT-020's on my bike......

$234 shipped for good qaulity tires is a good price....

Bingo! Just found these too, was going to post them up.

Now, the question is, is it worth saving 20 bucks to reduce tire life by almost half...I hate being a cheap bastid at time

Ended up going with the Pirelli Diablo Strada's from Motorcycle Superstore, $234 shipped. Couldn't find a bad review on these, unlike the Dunlops.
