RP4's, Angel GT's, Metzelers Z8's, Roadtec 01's you can also get these in HWM (heavyweight motorcycle) which have a stiffer carcass which may help also try not to stay stood up and lean the bike more
I'm never perfect but I'm always genuine

You could always try RP4 GTs which are designed for heavier bikes and have stiffer sidewalls - they were designed for things like the Suzi Hyabussa and BMW K300GT.  In theory there is a difference how the bike will ride and handle at normal weights due to the stronger carcass but should help if you ride 2 up a lot - I'm not sure in reality though if you would notice a lot of difference - hopefully some out there has tried them and can pass comment.
