Anyone with the Power 3 that has ridden on the Q2?

I was looking hard at the Pures, but read too many reports where peeps on heavier bikes/throttle thought they squirmed a bit. I didn't care for the rear PP 2CT when it got abused and hot.. way too greasy. So if the PP3 is the same or close compounds, I guess I'll pass.

I always liked the PP profile, but I sure do like the grip of the Q2..

Thread bump. I have PP3's on my VStrom 1k and most of my miles are commuting. The first time I really got to test them was the Deal's Gap trip at the end of May. I had a little over 1000 miles on them at the start of the trip, and they still looked brand new. I run 36 f/r for commuting but dropped them to 32 f/r for the Gap. They stuck like glue, and the only time the rear stepped out on me was when I got on the yellow line mid-turn. After 800 miles of pretty hard riding in near constant turns, the tires showed no noticeable signs of wear. Got back to Houston, bumped them up to 36 f/r again, and got back to my daily commuting (at least 200 miles a week).

I went on a hill country ride this weekend, and when I put the bike on the trailer to head out Friday I had about 6k miles on the tires. Sides still looked new and the center was at least 50% (probably closer to 60%). 550 miles in two days of spirited hill country riding destroyed what was left of the center of the rear tire. I was down to the wear indicator before the ride was even over on day two. I'm chalking this up to the ridiculously rough road surfaces out there. The only real indication of wear on the sides was feathering in the treads. Oh...I was running 34 f/r in the hill country. The rear only stepped out twice on me out there. Once, I got on the yellow stripe again, and the other time I found some gravel. Each time it stepped out I was hard on the throttle. I'd roll off just a touch and the tire would bite like crazy again.

My overall assessment is that these tires are great. I will be replacing my rear with another PP3 this week. I think that I would have gotten at least another 3k out of the rear if I hadn't gone to play in the hills. I think that 600/750 riders will get more life out of this tire than I did, but I believe a liter bike in the hill country would chew through it faster than my V-twin did.

Another indicator of how sticky they are: I can shift into second mid turn while hard on the throttle, lift the front about an inch while leaned over and the rear won't slip.

nice...Yes! hill country roads are in real bad shape ...super rough..

i rode davids bike with the same tires...was 2 up and coming into a corner i down shifted and the tire slid big time...could have been his soft suspension setup or air pressure was low..

I am currently using PR2's and love them

Mine do that too, occasionally, but that has always been because I didn't blip to high enough RPMs before downshifting.
