Yeah well I guess I'll look into the Pilot Road for my riding condition. I mean I would still like a good grip on them. Even if I do put on these Pilot road, I'll still notice a better grip than my bald tire right now correct? Even if I mainly ride freeways and such.

I would get pilot roads. I've tested both the next gen metz M3 and the PP with the hardness tester, the M3's are higher durometer than the Pilot Power (75 vs 65). Potentially better wear for the M3's...but pilot roads will blow both of them away in the wear department. The M3 is a much different profile than the PP as well, especially on the rear.

One thing I like about the powers is that they stick, warm up quick even at street pressures, give way progressively when leaned, and have good wear characteristics for a pure sport street tire. Track or street, when pushed they will perform. I just had an incident this weekend that still leaves me in awe of this "street tire", basically leaned to the edge of the rubber (too much entry speed) dragging the spool on my swingarm and the case cover...I managed to save it with just my knee and like a square mm of tire surface. However, as said before they will flat spot if you do a lot of freeway droning. If you're not really pushing your tires (street riding), Pilot roads will probably give you better value for the money at this point in your riding.

When you start doing track days, Pilot Powers are a good tire to get your feet wet with aggressive riding.

Thanks, but I sort of had my mind sent on Michelin. I would like to hit the twisties eventually, its just that I not yet comfortable leaning that far yet. Even when I bought the bike the tires were already bad I just never had the chance to replace them. I wonder how much of a confidence boost I'll get off of using some decent tires.

well ive had three different tires on my bike. bridgestone bt56, metzler m1 sportec and most recent the pilot power. i do not like the pilot power at all. the bridgestones and the metzler felt way sticker and felt like they just hold the road better. on the pilot power i power wheelie and the bike trys to lean and ride on the side of the tire. the metzler and bridgestone never did that. i wont buy another pilot power
