YZF R1 favorite tires?

Question

What's everyone's favorite tires to run, I try to ride all year. I'm from Vancouver Canada so it gets cold but also very warm in the summer. I feel like my current tires don't grip the way I'd like them too. Recommendations would be greatly appreciated. ­čŹ╗

    On the 03 R1 I had a blast with Q3’s.
    Current 15 R1 has P. Diablo Supercorsas, I’m sure these wont do as well in the cold.

    Location: Las Vegas (115+ summer, 15 +/- Winter)

    M7RR’s are a great all round tire. Great dry grip and very confidence inspiring in the wet. Wet wheelies no problem.

    I used to run Q3’s for Track tires. Had to switch to Q4’s though.
    For street tires it depends on which bike and how I plan on riding it. Q3+ for riding twisties. Michelin pilot road 4’s or 5’s for just commuting. I’ll also run track takeoffs on the street if I’m being cheap.

    I am in Calgary and ran the Q3+ this year and it was fan-fricken-tactic. I would not recommend it as a wet tire, but if your mostly out in the dry, the tire had good grip across all temperatures, and gave a ton of confidence on my flashed 13. Never had them on wet though, just lucky this year I guess.
