Dang, $250? $100 less for the better tire and one that you can ride on the street to boot?

No brainer there.

FWIW, I ran the 2CT's at TWS (Texas World Speedway) on Monday. No complaints, except that I did feel them get a tad greasy the last sessions - the front pushed once in turn 10, and the rear stepped out in the following left when I accelerated out in 2nd. I started 32/32 cold, which went to 38/38 hot after two sessions, and I backed it down to 34/34 hot. Maybe that was I mistake, I dunno. The only real obvious difference I felt compared to the OEM Qualifiers was that the bike was slower flicking from side to side. The was especially apparent in the 13-14-15 esses. The upshot being, of course, more stability mid-corner. Personally, I think I preferred the increased flickability.

Unfortunately my head just wasn't in the game that day though, so I wasn't being to consistent. Before leaving to get the tires changed on Saturday, the last time I rode the bike was at MSR-C - gave it too much gas turning right on a residential street about 100 yards from my house, and laid the bike down. The only bike damage was to the mirror, frame slider and passenger peg - but the REAL issue was to my confidence, so I had a lot of trouble dealing with the right-hand turns at TWS (Texas World Speedway). Fortunately most of the big ones are lefties, but I only managed a 2:09 as my best lap.

I have no regrets going with the Michelins, but next time I think I'll try something different.
