    The local tlr's are running Pirelli Diablos gets 17000Kms a set and they stick even better than the M1 which gave 12000Km and they warm up fast, great for a cool to medium climate if I lived in Florida I dont know if they would last as long. I have ridden 2 different bikes with the 180 and the 190 and I liked both although my preferance would be the 190. Also both bikes have the spacer under the rear spring mount and they both turn very well the 180 turns a little faster. Average Vancouver temp in winter is 40-50 and in the summer 70-80.

    dude give a little more WOT. Those are high #'s!!

    I am thinking about going with a bt012 on the front and 010 on the rear...what do you think? I allready have the BT-012 front so I just need a rear to go with it. I was thinking about the 010 becaue I would prefer to make sure that the rear will slide before the front in a turn....also have a set of D207's but dont like them much...I need something that warms up quickly and works ok cold and is predictible when near its traction limit, absolute traction is not as importaint as predictibility and ability to handle a varity of temps..

    thanks

    I used to run the Pilots on my Duc. I think they take too long to warm up. They would break loose like crazy when the weather was on the cool side. I would suggest you try a different brand if the "Powers" aren't out yet. You'll be glad you did.

    I'm running the M-1's with a 190 right now...Love the grip. Will be checking out an M-1 180 next.

    Running the 208. Only running on the street. Feels like it has more grip then the stock 207. Don't know about the tire life yet.

    Bridgestone BT 001's a lot of racers using them over here, yes i mean 001's not 010's seem spot on, haven't really got full use still a bit cold over here, not sure about running 120/70 front tho can't get to edge of tyre, worried the edges won't keep heat in them since its so steep. 180/60 rear is superb ripplin nicely at the edges on mediocre road use.

    Dunlop 207 gp's on the bike when I bought it, good grip but crap milage, 5000 k's and front and rear were both shagged!

    Michelin Pilot sports. Excellent grip and milage (7000+ km's and still got a couple of hundred more at least.) Only thing I've found with them is that I need to run the pressures up fairly high on the street....around the 39p.s.i mark. (they tend to squirm and wriggle with lower pressures.)

    Atm a Pilot Road front. Not too much grip, but lasts very long. Braking in corners isn't good anymore with >8000km on it.

    BT010 rear. Really the best tyre I ever drove.

    I'm going for a set of BT014 next. Should be better predictable than the 010 on the limit.

    I had 208's on my gxxr.

    I thought that they took a little time to get used to, as in they moved around but never went to far. as soon as I was confident in them no probs.

    I am now running pilots (on a tls) and they don't move around so much, but I am not overly confident in them. Funny ha

    I think that for me it is all upstairs
