PP2ct for the winnnnnn!




....but be prepared to change them every season. Buy them online and do it yourself, no excuses. Unless your rich and will pay the dealer to do everything, then why are you riding a f4i anyways rich kid!? go buy a ducati or an aprilla,,mmmmm aprilla, that Agusta F4 is siiiick, although the 848 is pretty bad *** too..... me likey. what were we talking about....who cares it's friday.

pilot power 2cts unless you dont get into twisties much then maybe the pirelli diablo rosso will get more mileage out of it but still holds pretty good thru the corners

pilot roads or road 2cts are good for commuting. I like PP2CTs!!!

So far I like my Dunlop RoadSmart tires. But haven't really had a chance to try pilot powers

Oh do I love my Dunlops! But Michelin does a good job too.

dude pilot roads, i swore by pilot powers, but the roads grip just as good for what i do. i ride hard but not extreme, and the road last soooo long. the powers r way nice too, just soft, to be honest, i trust the road just as much, and i dont trust hardly any tires. the road feels almost the same to me(all the time except it takes longer to warm up in the cold)

The shinko 005's that were on my bike when I got it (which were pretty well shot) felt like trash. I could trust them to hold the road at all avenue after 20-30 minutes into the ride in 3rd and 4th gratification I was a little too quick opening the throttle, the tire would just spin under me even at 50 MPH.

Even before being scrubbed in the D's grabbed the road. The bike felt solid in a way it never did. I currently got 3000 miles on them and they hardly are showing wear yet. Reviews of other riders when I was looking were saying they were getting around 8000 up front and around 10000-11000 on the rear on liter bikes.
