The Q2 is a harder tire than the BT016. The Dunlop kicks on the track too, it gave me a lot of confidence. The BT016 is a great tire too, but I really like the feel of the Dunlops These are MY experiences with the tire. I am not a professional so this is your average Joe giving his feedback.
This is the type of opinion I was looking for. Why you chose the set you have and what have you noticed about them that differ from other sets.

I have the same opinion on the Q2 versus the BT016. I get more feedback from the Q2 which gives me more confidence in what the tires are doing.

I'll still try some Pirellis and the Pilot Pures in the future, just to give me some more options and experience.

Keep in mind different riders on different bikes may or may not like the same tire.

Exactly why I spoke to people that ride some what like me, some of them push a lot harder in the corners than I do.

So far I have 4000 miles on them and there is barely a flat spot showing on the rear and I pull the front wheel up way too often. As far as grip, I ride the forest a lot considering I live in the middle of it and I run double the posted speed plus 10 all day with no grip problems.

Kinda like asking about what kinda condom you should use.... If you have a triumph 675 I personally like the pirelli Diablo supercorsa's that come stock on the 675.

Personal opinion, I don't like Bridgestone tires either. Car tires are made different from motorcycle tires so my negative opinion torwards them is worthless.

I love my tires thats what I have but cant justify changing them every other oil change the oil changes are already high enough on this bike. Same price as the the truck and that takes 7qt with a cartridge filter not 4qts with a cheap spin on.

Its funny you sound like "she" with the whole codom thing lol. "I will never understand you men. When it comes to your car OR BIKE you want to get the perfect lil nik nac item, but when it comes to you'll grab anything" I can't stand this girl
