Looking at my front tire this weekend I noticed the belt starting to peel through...

Decided it was time to look for tires... and then I get this awesome "semi-annual" tire sale email from motorcycle super store this morning...

Do it! :rock:

Anyone running these on their SV? Curious to see how they hold up.

I am gonna them on the street for the rest of the season (probably till december or so) and hopefully next spring get a track day on them.

I've read a couple things about people only getting 2000 miles on them... its hard to imagine ... is that realistic? I mean i ride pretty hard but holy crap.

I went the other way with sport touring tires, Pirelli Angels, and they seem to have plenty of grip while aggressive canyon carving.

When these wear out, depending on if they continue giving great characteristics, I see no reason not to pick up another set.

Keep us informed on how you like those.

Yeah, these are terrible street tires.

These are made for track only, in dry and clean tracks! That's why they named them "race tires". Be careful in the rain!

You should go with bridgestones bt-016 or Dunlop Q2 for street applications.
