Thumbs up jus got some Pirelli's

ya so on my trip to corpus christi last weekend, i caught a huge nail in my back tire, it caused a slow leak. no way im going to plug or patch. the tires i had been using were bt-002's with a few trackdays on them (sides looked plasma melted) and a few months of commuting on them. middle almost to the wear marks, but not quite. tires also had the blueish look that track tires get from being heat cycled and overcooked too much. i had maybe another month or so left on them before they would need to be replaced anyways. (my commute to work is 2 miles)

i opted for a set of pirelli diablos. not the corsas, or super corsa's, or super mega ultra corsa 98598695's, but just the regular pirelli diablo streets. i actually almost opted for the diablo stradas (the sport touring diablo), because i plan on making trips to corpus more often, but i ended up deciding on these. if they dont last long enough, i will try the stradas.

some of yall might ask why i chose diablo streets over pilot powers, M3's bto-14s or whatever everyone else uses. well basicly, thats the answer, i figure there is allready alot of info out on the rest, so i wanted something different. plus, i only ever hear good things about pirelli grip. only bad thing ive heard about pirellis is that the mileage isnt there, but i assume most people get the corsa's, which are intended more for track use.

so far i only put two miles on them, but they felt really good on the way home. granted a fresh set is always going to feel great, especially coming off flattened out, over cooked, leaky tires. but i have had fresh rubber before.

i had put a fresh set of powers on my last bike. the diablos dont turn in as quick as the powers will, of course, but i would have to say, on my initial test, they felt stickier once i was in the lean. apples to oranges a bit cause its not the same bike, but still worth $0.02.

maybe ill do a memorial dr/alllen parkway + clover run soon, and give some more feedback.

Let us know how your test turns out.
