The 003 race tires are clearly superior to everything out on the market right now IMHO. The feel, edge grip, longevity, price, you name it, is so much better or at least as good as anything on the market right now.

If you want a dual purpose tire (street/ track), you can't go wrong with the 016 or I prefer the 002RS.

For the track, it's a no-brainer, the 003 OWNS.
I am Tyler Durdin's bad attitude.

From observations of other riders I actually am pushing the limits of the tires...

I assume you are pushing those limits on the track.....

I have done two track days on the BT020's that I have on the Triple currently and they really haven't given me any problems...if you are finding the limits on the street, you may be pushing a bit too far anyway, just my two carefull out there.
You should have that looked at....

I took a ride Wednesday evening on the 16's. Because it was misting I couldn't really get on it. What I noticed right away was the quicker turn in. My PP's were 50's these are 55's. I did nail it, at about 80mph and 8k rpms, on a liter bike, on a damp road, and got ZERO slip then slowed back down.

Anyway, thus far, with the 30 miles I put on them, on a damp freeway, I like em. Can't waint to hit the twisties and see whats up.
