What kind of rubber are you guys running on? My battlax-003 are being wasted on commuting miles. Looking for something not as sticky with longer life.

I'm on regular Pilot Powers and the rear is getting squared off something viscous from the super slab.... I'm probably going to switch to pilot roads 2 or 3 next time around. I may throw a 2CT on the back until my front PP wears out and make the switch then.

+1 for PR3. If you want a do an occasional track day, BT016 Pro is not a bad idea. I picked up a set for $200 at CycleGear a while back.

Just spent nearly 500 on repairs and then got a new front tire for the bike. It Still it is much cheaper than filling up the car weekly way cheaper and a lot more fun!!!

The plan is to ditch the leg brace tomorrow when I see the orthopedist. Maybe I can ride the HD next week since it has forward controls, not sure how long it's going to take to bend my knee enough to be able to ride the CBR

Pilot road 2ct's lasted too long for me. I was getting punctures faster then I could wear out the tire

the pilot powers feel SO MUCH BETTER but I don't ecpect to ever get 12k out of a rear like I did with the Pilot Road 2ct

ha, i hear ya. My wife takes the kids in the morning to daycare, i have to pick them up. So its the traffic race home on my ride, then switch to the SUV to get the kids. Good thing is that the daycare is 1 min from the house. Sometimes i am running late which means, i jump off the bike and in full gear mind you hop in the suv down to the daycare. Ha lmao, i love the looks from others as i drive with all the gear in the SUV, but no time to take it off sometimes.
