new tire reccomendations for ex 500

i ran a quick search and didn't find anything, so here goes:

my front tire has a pretty good sized leak, so i'm looking to replace it soon. what sites do you reccomend ordering tires from, and what maker/line would you suggest?

i'd like to stay with the stock tire size, and i really like the grip that the tires that came with it give in wet and dry weather. i just wanna know what else is out there since i've never had to buy tires before.

any help appreciated, thanks! ^.^

I can give you sizes, 120/70 for the front, and 150/60 for the rear.

I am running pirelli diablos at the moment, I've been very impressed, and I still get decent mileage out of them. (5K currently with possibly a few thousand more out of the back and another 5K from the front.)

These are supersport tires too, they will be sticker than a sport touring tire, but won't as long.
How well do they stick in the rain? Here in Arkansas it can be sunny one minute and raining the next.
