what do you think of the 016 compared to the Q2?
and I have heard the 003 takes longer to warm up ?

in total agreement, you oversimplified what I was saying, or I did...
if the tire is not up to temp it will not give all the performance it can and if you push it, there could be problems... hence all the talk on track days about guys going down early due to "cold tires", rider error is pushing it before the tires were ready to be pushed...

The 003rs seem to warm up fast as far as i can tell.

I didn't get on here to start a contest I simply wanted to get info. on tires. What i put on my bike with "my money" is my problem untill then if you don't have any advice then move the F around.

I know who Mustang is, I work for Oxy. That being said, if you're 34 and still so cavalier with your mortality, you might want to consider that you're exceptionally immature for your age. And I never commented on what you do with your money, but as you seem to not have done trackdays your attitude that "my time will come so it, I might as well do risky while I can" has the potential to place me in harms way of your antics (since your jackassery occurs on the same roads I drive). At which point, I do have a say.

My track days are coming soon enough...I've been riding on and off for a year or so but never my own bike. Now that I have one which i've only had for about a month and half the track is going to start being my play ground but just like with anything else you have to get to know what your driving before you can start pushing it to its limits. I never said that I was out on hwy driving like a jackass as you so called stated. I stated I drive aggressive and fast which i even do so in my car/truck that's just the way i drive. So I don't see anything wrong with getting good sticky tires and learning somewhat what the limitation and boundaries are before I hit the track.

sounds like you're gonna learn the hard way........lol

you can't push 30% of your bikes capabilites on the street, esp. w/ your spotty riding history. and only when you goto a trackday and get passed a lowly SV or 250 you'll learn that.

don't die.....it hurts.

A man comes in to ask a simple question of where to get Pirelli corsa and get rained down of speeches of he should just ride on tomahawk, full bore, or whatever and saying that his ability isn't up to par for suspension and sticky tires.

I don't know a thing about them, that is why I ask the folks who do...
in picking my next tires, I talked to John, Whoopie, Patrick at Motorcycles Unlimited... and got input from Tim at fastline on my current needs based on my limited riding ability...that is why when I say anything about tires... I say it is what I heard, not what I know...and is generally in the form of a question, not a suggestion...

i agree with you to a point.... and that point is that here we are all Slow..... because if we were fast we would be on TV racing on Moto GP..... just saying....
so this is from one of the slowest person here (myself) everyone is just giving their opinion on what they think is a good tire...

So everyone in the world, except the 17ish people on the moto gp grid are slow? Tell that to Blake Young and all the other AMA pros.

Look, all I am saying is that if you can't even run ~1:55 at TWS (Texas World Speedway) or ~1:45 at MSRH and you're on stock or badly tuned suspension, what do you really know about tire performance other that what you heard someone say, or even worse, read what they posted.

And I'm speaking in general. Not to you specifically.

Stick around grasshopper.

knowing about tires and the ability to use them to their fullest potential may not be the same thing...
some of us do not have the ability to perform at that level, it does not mean however that we do not understand what it takes, it means that we do not have what it takes...so knowledge of tires is not limited to those 17 or so fastest folks in the world, or the guys at the AMA or the CMRA..
knowlege of tires, compounds etc is not the same as being able to use them... and I am not saying that I know tires.. but it does not really mean that because you can run faster times than someone else, that you actually know tires better than they do... I will readily admit you know more about them than I do... but then again, that has not said too much...
