Keep in mind I'm on a Z750S (shitty suspension) and way undersprung for me.
Pirellis don't tend to give me the feel I like. I've tried Pirelli Angel STs and am currently on a set of race takeoff Diablo Supercorsas. They're both sticky, and I've scraped pegs even on the STs, but they don't give much feedback.
I've run the Q2s and loved them. Grip side to side with no problems whatsoever. Great feedback. Tell you when you're pushing the limit, when you're at the limit, and even if you pass it a little they're forgiving. Q3s are supposedly the upgrade, so I may be upgrading to those when these Supercorsas are done.
I know a lot of people love the Battleaxs, but have noticed in doing tons of tire changes that most people who love them tend to leave a decently wide strip down either side. My riding buddies who have ridden them tended to hate them as they stepped out on my friends earlier than most other tires. Personal experience and your mileage may vary, but that's my experience with it.
