As with anything, I will match or beat online pricing whenever possible.

Yes 36 front should be fine.

SCRC, Howard went to Dunlop's and got beat by Kelsey. What up? Haven't seen you around here. Your my favorite tire guy at the track except when Whoopie rides around the pits on his mountain bike in his underwear. Tell Brandon I said Hi.

What can I say, you can lead them to the water, but I can't make them drink. We are in for some great racing between Howard, Kelsey and Andrews. Derek Wagnon will be on Pirellis in the CMRA this season and when HSBK gets that RSV4 rollin, I can bet he will be going fast too.

Do I need to start riding my pitbike in my underwear?

Im surprised so many love the Q2. I am not a fan. I get for feel from them and the rear wont hook for anything. I usually spin it to 3rd on the street. Pressure doesn't seem to change the feel or grip on them. I would like to try the PP3. I have always love the past PPs I have run.

No problem, anytime. That's two sets sold as cheap as possible. Back to the originally posted prices on Michelin's. I hope they work well for you, let me know.

I ran mine @ 40 for normal riding. I'd drop them to around 35-37 for mode.
I put 3500 miles on the one I have now, it still has 3500 left in it.
When I wear this Diablo out (a week or two more), I'll spoon it back on.

The PR3 sticks very good, and does not take long to warm up.....although, you can smoke it pretty easy when cold. Rain.....SOB works VERY good in the rain.

Doubt it. Mine won't get installed till next weekend or the weekend after. We'll see how my rear tire is after this weekend

tires are expensive to have to replace ever 2k miles or so...

On a side note, Bill threw in a WWH tshirt with the tires

Seriously, Bill is HOOKING up MH folks like none other. Go see him and the rest of the team at Wild West Honda

Mine cost more then those and I have to replace them every time I ride which is almost every week. The rear is replaced every time I ride. The front will last 2 days.

They will take a bit longer to warm up but the grip is great once warmed up. If you are strictly commuting 38 front and 40 rear will help get more mileage. 42 rear if you are a heavier guy (greater than 200 lbs). or you have a passenger.
You talking to me?

, I need to run some more pressure in the rear tire then.

I had a blast at MSRH on the MZ1000S with the S20's in intermediate, but I was running 32 in both per Brandon and as you suggest above. I was running 38/36 F/R for street use. I'll try the 38F/42R for street on my next outing. We'll see how it goes...
