    I changed my tires today and picked up a set of Pirelli Dragon Supercorsa's... They are sweet tires. Really soft and stick really well.

    Had Dunlop D739s, but I chewed up the rear so I threw an old POS Kenda I had in the garage until I can afford a better rear. I kinda want to toss the front Dunlop too; it skates pretty bad on most everything but rocks.

    Actually, they aren't half bad once warm.. But it takes forever to warm them up. I had this before my Pilot Powers

    It depends on the outside temperature, temperature of the asphalt, etc... blah blah

    The simple answer is you'll feel when they warm up.

    Bridgestone BT014 front and rear.

    they get me down to 40+ degrees on the street in ideal conditions, so no complaints here.

    to know when the tire is warn,m just touch the rear brake IN STRAIGHT LINE

    you'll know right away.. when it's not warm the rear will brake loose at the slightest touch.

    Same here. They have a good balance of performance vs. mileage. Perfect on my ZX9 for sport touring.
