Blends if you have your strips off and have only ridden street then you better be riding in full gear.

In regards to the pics posted. Once the tyre turns colors, you are right about heat cycles, you tyre compound has actually changed and the tyre is not going to grip like to was made to (not to mention your using Metzler).

In addition, it is much easier to remove chicken strips if you on GOOD tyre. Preferably one made for the track. Also if you have a better profile tyre it is going to be more curved.

I say ride within your limits personally. Just my 2 cents.

Actually when I went out saturday, I did throw on the leathers to try and get a little bit more used to them. Can't wait for a trackday when I can actually go fast around the corners!

Just don't override. Ride the line and you will get faster naturally.
