So I seem to flatter the rear tire easily due to a heavy bike, heavy rider and Chicago straight roads.

Looking for some thing that won’t flatten the rear tire after 4,000 miles.

Should I look towards a dual sport type tire? Or what to you experts think?

Straight roads kill all tyres - it's a fact of life. However Michelin Road 5 GT would be appropriate for any CARC Guzzi

I wouldn't call myself an expert but I really like the Michelin Road 5.

I put a set on a couple years ago when I had flat leaving Phoenix. They seem to be holding up very well. I will probably be replacing them with the same after this season.

On the personal opinion side I think dual sport tires go on dual sport bikes, road tires for road bikes.

Another vote for the Road5. I will say, I got less than 4,000 mi. out mine, but it wasn't the middle that wore out first. And my rear was in better shape than the front. I tend to go into a corner a little fast, feathering the brake, and roll out under throttle. Both tires had the left side worn much worse than the right or middle.

It doesn't help that I'm a big ol' farm boy, and gravity has a firm grip on me.

I run Shinko Raven 009 on my GRiSO I have 3800 miles on them and there is a lot of wear left.
I got them based on the recommendation of another friend who is on his second set of them on his GRiSO.
Also they are less than half the price of the Michelin. I live in the land of straight flat roads. $92 at link.
