Bridgestone BT 45's will give you the most amount of grip, for the least amount of money. I have run them on my old VF500 Interceptor, CB750F, and my beastly Suzuki GS1150EF.I don't stay home when it's wet. The rain has no bearing on where & when I might ride. You would probably get better mileage from any number of other make & model of tires, but for something with skinny rims that doesn't make huge horsepower, the BT45's are a good choice.

I went with the BT45's on my CBF after a set of Dunlop 404's.The 404's are a good highway tire and you can get above average miles but they are NOT confidence inspiring in the least!!!!

The Bridgestones just feel more planted wet or dry.This is only my opinion and is based on feel which is very subjective to say the least.

I have had two sets of bt45, they are terrible in the rain, I have shinko 712, half the price are way better in the rain. I live in washington state and know a little bit about riding in the rain lol.

I've run BT45 and Pirelli Sport Demons in the wet. They both work with a slight nod to the Pirellis. Either would be a good choice.

Another vote for the BT45's here Very good all round tyre and work well on our greasy, mud and salt splattered roads.
