The M1's are good tires, basically the same as the Diablo's. Expect rear mileage in the 3000 - 4000 range and front 8000-9000, providing you keep up with your tire pressure.
See my thread on the Diablos for sale pricing.

Ive got M1's, love em. They warm and sticky up pretty fast. Last 4k miles. Sticky tires dont last as long but well worth it IMO.

I'd rather have a sticky tire that doesn't last very long to a not so sticky that may break loose but may last 5k plus miles.

I had a set of M1's on my R6 and thought they were pretty darn good IMO. Different strokes for different folks though. Just my 2cents as usual

...well i think i will give the m1's a try. bto14 are great also, but money is always an issue and patrick is running a special on them. i think i will give them a try. being i live in east texas now i dont want a tire sliding out from under me because there is little room on the sides of the roads here. i dont want to end up sliding into the woods at 70+ mph.

I read that the m-3 is the replacement for the m-1. The m-3 is suppose to have longer mileage.

for your skill level, it doesn't really matter. your bike came w/ 190's. really 180's a better tire but you really wouldn't feel the diff.
