Default New rear tyre recommendations

I need to change my rear tyre (2007) pointy. Just use the bike for weekend rideouts and a little touring in the summer. Any reccomendations?

General consensus seems to be Avon Storm or Bridgestone BT-021s I think!

Black and round seem to be the best ones.

Can't go wrong with either the Bridgestones or Avons.
