It depends on how you want to use your bike - if you want mixed use then the Pirelli Scorpion Trail IIs are a good bet - for dedicated road use, I would go with Metzeler Roadtech (01?) - well reviewed elsewhere on these forums.  The Trail IIs are good, not worth binning before they are worn out, but there are better tyres for the road come change time, IMO.

Murf, I an curious to hear your opinion about de Road 5 (compared to standard tyres).
I am asking because soon I'll have to look for new tyres.
My experince it's only with PR 4,5 and Pirelli from MTS. My guessing is that the Road 5 has excelent grip, even on wet, but won't last that much as the standard tyres.

Great tires for just about any road not real off road of course.  But hard dirt very good.   
My BMW GS Friends also think very highly of these tires. 
For a performance ADV bike doing mostly touring this is about as good as it gets. 
Fantastic in the rain.
