You can get just a set of Q'2s and use them for street after you're done!
Thats what I would do...

+1 on the sixteens. I have them on my 600 pound VFR and 400 pound SV. They warm up good within about 2-3 miles on the road or just a lap or 2 on the track. I've drug knees and hard parts with nary a slip and I've gotten good mileage out of them

However, my next set on the SV I will be giving the Dunlop Q2 a try. Heard good all-around things about them too.
