Conti-Motion. UR Opinion wanted

I put a LOT of miles on my 10 and I run thru tires like crazy.
I love the Dunlop Q2's the best for the street, but every couple of months I'm buying new tires. So I'm thinking of trying a sport touring tire for longer tread life.
I know I won't be able to shred with them but at least I won't be buying a new tire every 60 days.

So basically what I'm asking is :
From people who have used them.
What do you think of them.

I just bought a Metzeler Z8, sport touring for the same reasons. It's got soft rubber on the sides and a harder contact patch down the center for longer life. Hope it works!

My last set of these were very good to me mileage wise. Its not the motion but it is a Conti. Road well, handled well and lasted.
