Choice of replacement tires for '18 1260S MTS?

Has anyone replaced the tires on their '18 1260S MTS? If so, what tires did you choose and why?

I was even thinking of swapping the OEM Scorpion Trails for Rosso 3's right off the showroom floor.
The Rosso 3's are OEM on the big Monster S. I don't do dirt and don't tour. Moreover I like the sport tire feel and just may take my new 1260 PP to the track occasionally..

So far I have gone through the stock Pirelli Scorpions, a set of Super Corsa SP's, 2 sets of Angel Gt's. I actually prefer the stock tires best for all condition riding.

The SC's were fun but don't last long (got them from Pirelli at a track event).

The Angels are good commuters that can hit the curvy roads in the mountains well, but are a little more unpredictable in the rain than I prefer.

I'm at 21k miles on my 2018 already... That's alot of tires so far.

If anyone puts a set of Rosso 3 tires on let me know what you think. I have them on my Monster and they have been great on the track and in the mountains. I am wondering how they would be on the Multi

@JohnR
I'm hemming and hawing about this as well. As @Rusty Helmholtz mentioned, I'll go through the scorpions first and then decide.
I've had SC on my Monster and did not like the wear or lack thereof. However, I've had two pairs on my 959 Panigale and they were awesome. I also currently have Rosso 3's on the Monster and they're fine. Not as sticky as SC but much better in the cold or on dirty roads. I'm also highly considering Angel GT 2's for the Multi.

When you get a new set perhaps you can post what you put on and how you like them. Since I don't do any off road riding, I am thinking that a sport touring tire would offer better handling and grip...
